Structured Securities Tutorial

NEW in 2014!

Special Comment:
Overview of U.S. Insurance Industry Holdings of Modeled Non-Agency Mortgage-Backed Securities, YE2013

NEW in 2013!

The NAIC has upgraded the Structured Securities system that was incorporated into AVS+ on Sept. 6. The new system has the same functionality that was available previously, a new look and feel and additional features. Some of this functionality will not be immediately available in AVS+ as the feature is only accessible at a specific date during the Structured Securities process.

New Features:

  • Search residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS), commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) and
    NAIC designations all from one site.
  • Add a security to any portfolio that you are associated to from a single screen.
  • Request a security for modeling consideration by simply adding it to your portfolio.
  • View a summary of all the securities in your portfolio.
  • Find securities in your portfolio by using a filter by CUSIP, Type, Status and Invoice number.
  • View a history of all changes to your portfolio showing the action taken, the date it occurred and the individual
    who made the change.
  • Download multiple company portfolios in one zip file.
  • View the details for all your invoices.

September 30, 2013 – Last day to submit changes to the contact information for your company's 2013 initial invoice.
