"This book provides an insightful and accessible exploration of securitized real estate markets. As such, it provides a valuable service to those active and interested in these burgeoning markets. The authors have done a wonderful job of gracefully integrating a vast and important subject matter. Accordingly, this book also makes for an excellent textbook for those universities offering one or more courses in this rapidly growing field."

The authors drew on the expertise of Andrew Davidson & Co., Inc., in preparing Securitization. The broad range of expertise of the firms consultants, and the technical and analytical skills of the firms analysts, provide a rich background that gives Securitization strong theoretical underpinnings, as well as a grounding in practical application of the theory and methods described in the book. Two associates from outside the firm, with additional specialized expertise, were enlisted as well.
