A&D Mortgage, a major supplier of home loans to issuers of  non-qualified mortgage bonds, is about to start selling its own  securities via its Imperial Fund affiliate, with longtime structured-finance professional Jeffrey Nabi spearheading the effort.  The Hollywood, Fla., lender is aiming for June to float its  first securitization of accounts that fall outside the Consumer  Financial Protection Bureau’s “qualified-mortgage” standards.

The offering is expected to weigh in at about $250 million.

Imperial already is lining up rating agencies and underwriters for the transaction, which will be underpinned by the same types of non-qualified loans A&D has been selling over the past  six years to some of the market’s most active issuers, including  Pretium Partners unit Deephaven Mortgage, Pimco, and Invictus  Capital.
