"As a result of the credit crisis, we are seeing a large number of fixed income securities trading at significant discounts to fundamental cash flow value," said Thomas Graf, director of structured products for Standish.
"Our workout solutions business is a natural extension of Standish's strong asset management platform," said Graf.

"You might have a very high-quality REIT, for example, that could have a very geographically diverse portfolio as well as diverse property types," says Tom Graf, managing director of Boston-based Standish Mellon Asset Management, which aims to invest in TALF CMBS.

"We weren't sure whether it would be something that was going to fit within our product offering," says Tom Graf, managing director of structured products and global workout solutions at the Boston-based Standish Mellon.
"Given how this program has played out in its early stages, spreads have started to tighten, so the yield spread premium that you're getting to buy that same asset is lower now than it was originally," Graf says.
While TALF has already been successful at spurring auto and student loan investment, the CMBS version of TALF has been slow going. The first deadline for investors to request TALF loans for new issue CMBS came and went on June 16 without a single application. But the lack of initial interest wasn't surprising, given that no new CMBS issuances have been offered through the program, and it remains unclear what legacy CMBS will be offered.
"We've heard rumors of new issue CMBS forthcoming," Graf says.
