3 2 TBA Market

4 3 RBC Capital Markets TBA Program Lower Cost, Increased Flexibility RBCCM bankers have worked with RBC’s MBS desk to offer a reduced cost TBA program for HFAs with liquid assets Considerations: Overview: RBCCM has created TBA programs for seven issuers to date Forward trades (GNMA I or GNMA II) can be structured for 30, 60 or 90 day delivery at any time and for any amount Variance for delivering MBS may be customized. RBC offers variability ranging from +/- 20% and +/- 30% to 100% RBC’s TBA program differs from other programs in that the issuer retains ownership of loans until MBS are sold to RBC. The Issuer may choose to sell on a forward basis or wait until MBS are available and sell in the spot market. Other programs purchase all loans from the point of reservation (changing the price each day) and have rights to specific loans. In addition, sponsors retain a right to collect penalties from lenders under certain circumstances. Due to the structure, RBC’s program is more flexible in that it allows an issuer to easily move between bond funding and TBA MBS Sale funding Allows issuers to maintain control of their program – i.e. the issuer establishes mortgage rates, decides when and how to hedge and controls lender relations Required Issuer capital is determined based on the maximum loans that may be reserved before a trade/hedge is executed RBC is a financially strong trading partner due to our Aa3/AA-/AA ratings. Global Finance Magazine ranked RBC as North America’s safest bank from 2009 - 2012
