FirstKey Mortgage is a real estate finance business that is a global leader in acquiring, securitizing, and managing residential mortgages and related assets.

As a leading investor in residential real estate loans, mortgage servicing rights, and other mortgage-related and asset-backed investments, Cerberus created FirstKey Mortgage in 2013 to overcome barriers to entering the loan market.

Today, the operating capabilities of FirstKey Mortgage provide distinct competitive advantages by sourcing loan opportunities, managing and providing servicing oversight of assets, and facilitating certain structuring and servicing activities. Having an established, market-leading company in FirstKey Mortgage enhances Cerberus’ collateral underwriting and selection, pre-securitization due diligence, rating agency collaboration, and securitization and distribution operations.

FirstKey Mortgage has an experienced team of fixed-income investment professionals dedicated to collateral management and innovative deal structuring. It also has a dedicated technology group of software engineers and business analysts that develop and deploy solutions for complex mortgage trading, securitizations, and portfolio management.

FirstKey Mortgage is a licensed mortgage residential lender and servicer in multiple states in the United States. In February 2016, FirstKey Mortgage added a Global Structured Finance Group and expanded its role to serve as securitization sponsor and asset manager for U.S. securitization activities and structuring agent and co-sponsor for non-U.S. securitization activities.

FirstKey Mortgage is headquartered in New York and employs more than 55 full-time professionals, including a senior leadership team with more than 27 years of industry experience.
