AG Mortgage Investment Trust Inc., was formed in Maryland on March 1, 2011. The company invests in, acquire and manage a diversified portfolio of residential mortgage assets, other real estate-related securities and financial assets, which refer to as target assets. It expects portfolio will focus on residential mortgage-backed securities, or RMBS, that are not issued or guaranteed by a U.S. government agency or a U.S. government-sponsored entity, or non-Agency RMBS. Its non-Agency RMBS investments are expected to include fixed- and floating-rate securities, including investment grade (AAA through BBB) and non investment grade (BB and below). Initially, however, it intends to invest significant proceeds from the offering in RMBS for which a U.S. government agency such as the Government National Mortgage Association, or Ginnie Mae, or a federally-chartered corporation such as the Federal National Mortgage Association, or Fannie Mae, or the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, or Freddie Mac, guarantees payments of principal and interest on the securities. The company refers to these securities as Agency RMBS. Its Agency RMBS investments are expected to include mortgage pass-through securities and may include collateralized mortgage obligations, or CMOs. Its business objective is to provide attractive risk-adjusted returns to investors over the long-term through a combination of dividends and capital appreciation. It expects to generate income principally from the yields earned on investments and, to the extent that leverage is deployed, on the difference between the yields earned on investments and cost of borrowing and any hedging activities. The company's target asset classes and the principal investments expect to make, or may make, in each are as follows: Non-Agency RMBS : Non-Agency RMBS are residential mortgage-backed securities that are not issued or guaranteed by a U.S. government agency or federally-chartered corporation; Agency RMBS: Agency RMBS are residential mortgage-backed securities for which a U.S. government agency such as Ginnie Mae, or a federally-chartered corporation such as Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac guarantees payments of principal and interest on the securities; CMBS: CMBS are securities backed by obligations (including certificates of participation in obligations) that are principally secured by commercial mortgages on real property or interests therein having a multifamily or commercial use, such as regional malls, other retail space etc.; Residential mortgage loans: It may invest in residential mortgage loans secured by residential real property, including prime and jumbo, Alt-A and subprime mortgage loans; Commercial mortgage loans : It invests in loans secured by commercial real estate, including first and second lien loans, B-Notes, bridge loans and mezzanine loans; ABS : These securities are generally securities for which the underlying collateral consists of assets such as small balance commercial
