comment Securitization of a loan portfolio
+1 for the detailed explanation and schematic. Is there a "Securitization 101" type book you could recommend, that explains the technical, no-legal (i.e. modelling aspect) of securitization?

comment Securitization of a loan portfolio
@jeffm: Getting slight of my depth here .. so I'll tell you the end goal, and then hopefully, (you) or someone can tell me how to get there. Given a loan portfolio (consisting of 10ks of smaller sizee loans of different risk classes and tenors), I want to "slice" into larger issue sized bonds with predefined risk ratings and tenors. Ideally too, I'd like to hedge the interest payments against a major (say USD). My question is: what would be the steps involved in this securitization (repackaging of interest receipts)?

@jeffm: Not sure I understand your comment. I already stated that the loan book will be "sliced up" (i.e. diced into tranches) using the three 'attributes' I mentioned in my question. Is there some relevant information you feel I am leaving out?

Thanks. +1 for the effort. I now get the first part of the derivation. I am trying to understand the theta derivation (i.e. derivation wrt time), and how that leads to the final equation presented in 1.3
