Interest rates define the success and direction of investment management. New Residential Investment Corp. has found a way to overcome the impact of interest rates in investment trusts.
The relationship between fixed-rate securities and interest rate securities is inverse. This means that when one goes up, the other one goes down. Some of the factors that change the price for a particular bond include scarcity value and the yield curve. Interest rates, on the other hand, fluctuate due to change in taxes, investor’s risk tolerance, current inflation rates, and returns on competing investments.
For an investment management company to be profitable, portfolio managers must find a way to balance competing factors that lead to changes in interest rates. Interest rates will definitely change. But the uncertainty is when they will fluctuate. New Investment Residential Corp. has invented four strategies to handle the ever-changing business scenarios caused by financial volatility such as fluctuating interest rates.
The four strategies are new acquisitions, active management, asset specialization, and monetizing undervalued assets. New Residential has started acquiring companies that exercise more internal control over loan decisions and mortgage servicing. This move will reduce uncertainty and structure of the mortgage industry.
The company invests in opportunistic which include undervalued assets. It then transforms the assets to highly-valued assets. Active management makes an investment company make adjustments as the situations change. This enables a company to continue operating and refinancing assets when the need arises.
New Residential started specializing in the assets with stable rates such as excess mortgage servicing rights whose value appreciate with changes in interests rates.New Investment Residential Corp. has changed for the better under the leadership of Michael Nierenberg.
