Coincidentally, I just quoted a large portfolio. All of the notes had the same rates and terms. They were divided among several different payors. How I determined a value for it was to determine a Weighted Average of all the factors. Looking at Rates, Terms, Fair Market Values, Credit, etc. Once you have an average you can determine a value of the portfolio as a whole.
Note: Since the portfolio is such a large pool of notes you can leverage that fact and demand better yield rates from instituitional investors.
Best of luck to you!
P.S. Portfolios are fairly new to me and I am looking forward to other posts from the Veterans out there. John, what’s your take?
