Independent Third-Party Fair Market Valuation Services
The Mortgage Industry Advisory Corporation (“MIAC”) has been at the forefront of providing independent, third-party fair market valuations for complex mortgage assets and challenging balance sheet financial instruments since 1989. No other independent firm has the breadth of mortgage expertise and the industry leading pricing software to model so many financial instruments as MIAC. MIAC recognizes that our clients expect the highest standards of process transparency, assumption discovery methods and procedures, and compliance to the most current FAS 157. In recognition that our valuations are used for GAAP balance sheet reporting, all MIAC business control procedures are regularly audited through our SSAE 16 audit by Grant Thornton, LLP, www.gt.com.
Over the years, MIAC has been recognized as a leading valuation firm by independent, industry leading associations such as the Securities Industry Financial Markets Association (“SIFMA”). In November 2006, MIAC was identified in “An Analysis and Description of Pricing and Information Sources in the Securitized and Structured Finance Markets” as a leading provider of Secondary and Residual Pricing in the Securitized and Structured Finance markets. The Bond Market Association's MBS and Securitized Products Division and the American Securitization Forum jointly undertook a research project to understand and describe pricing and information sources and offer insights and observations of a general nature into the price discovery and valuation process.
MIAC’s large team of valuation experts serve over 200 clients worldwide from the largest financial institutions to the more modestly capitalized firms. To find out more, please register or sign up for MIAC Perspectives on the right side of this page.
