CYS Investments Inc. formerly Cypress Sharpridge Investments is a Maryland Corporation. It is a specialty finance company that was created with the objective of achieving consistent risk-adjusted investment income. The Company seeks to achieve this objective by investing on a leveraged basis in residential mortgage pass-through securities for which the principal and interest payments are guaranteed by the Federal National Mortgage Association, or Fannie Mae, the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, or Freddie Mac, or the Government National Mortgage Association, or Ginnie Mae, and collateralized by single-family residential mortgage loans. It invests in residential mortgage backed securities either issued or guaranteed as to principal and interest by a government agency or a government-sponsored entity, or Agency RMBS, collateralized by either adjustable-rate mortgage loans, or ARMs, with interest rates that reset monthly, hybrid ARMs that typically have a coupon rate that is fixed for an initial period (typically three, five seven or ten years) and thereafter resets at regular intervals, or fixed rate mortgage loans. The Company's investment strategy is designed to: build an investment portfolio consisting of Agency RMBS that seeks to generate attractive risk-adjusted investment income; manage financing, interest and prepayment rate risks; capitalize on discrepancies in the relative valuations in the RMBS market; manage cash flow so as to provide for regular quarterly distributions to stockholders; limit credit risk; and minimize the impact that changing interest rates have on its net investment income.
