The emerging geography of rental-backed securitization

I am happy to report that research conducted on the emerging trend of rental backed securitization has been published by the SF Federal Reserve Bank. The project, with Desiree Fields and a former undergrad of mine, Rajkumar Kohli, is the first published work which attempt to map and understand where this new phenomenon is occurring. I am particularly proud of this piece because it is an example of teaching-oriented research, as this project was done as part of a directed research project. Raj gets much of the credit for this piece, as it was he who developed the means of combing bond reports to build a dataset.
