Categorically, these certificates are a type of pass-through certificate. When a mortgage banker has accumulated at least $2 million of mortgages, a certificate is issued for them after the banker deposits the loans. These certificates differ from CMOs and mortgage backed bonds in that they do not hold back interest payments.
