Issue History and Alerts
The MBS funding platform allows you to access a consolidated view of all your DTC-eligible CD issues. It also lets you set alerts to notify you of maturities, step dates and call dates on outstanding CDs. In addition, for those CDs offered by MBS, related issuing documents (i.e. Terms Agreements and Master Certificates) are archived on the site for future reference.
Account history is displayed to show a visual illustration of your maturities. This effective tool allows you to analyze your maturity distribution and manage interest rate risk to avoid a high concentration in any one particular maturity tranche.
Funding Account Profile
Your profile page is designed to provide a snapshot of the financial and rating information used to pre-qualify your institution for available private placements and pre-orders. In addition, it allows you to permit other bank employees access to the funding platform so loan officers, board members, ALCO participants and others can view current and available information (rates, offerings, due diligence, etc.). This is also where you have the option of setting up alerts to notify you of upcoming maturities, call dates and step dates.
