Rabbit hole is getting deeper and deeper each day.
1999, Oh yes, MOODY’S “issued” an “independent” Structured Report entitled “Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. (MERS): Its Impact on The Credit Quality of First–Mortgage Jumbo Transactions.
This just fits right along with all the pieces to this article.
A former senior analyst at Moody’s has gone public with his story of how one of the country’s most important rating agencies is corrupted to the core.
The analyst, William J. Harrington, was employed by Moody’s for 11 years, from 1999 until his resignation in 2010.
From 2006 to 2010, Harrington was a Senior Vice President in the derivative products group, which was responsible for producing many of the disastrous ratings Moody’s issued during the housing bubble.
Harrington has made his story public in the form of a 78-page “comment” to the SEC’s proposed rules about rating agency reform, which he submitted to the agency on August 8th. The comment is a scathing indictment of Moody’s processes, conflicts of interests, and management, and it will likely make Harrington a star witness at any future litigation or hearings on this topic.
