INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Mortgage Cash Flow Obligation - MCFO'

Mortgage cash flow obligations resemble collateralized mortgage obligations (CMOs) in some respects, but they are not the same. MCFOs do not hold a lien on the mortgages held by the security. They are merely obligated by contract to use the income from the mortgages to pay their investors.
