Amherst Securities Group LP is a dealer and market maker in mortgage-backed securities (MBS), agency securities and select fixed-income investments.

Amherst is a registered broker-dealer with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC). Amherst is also an approved underwriter for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Home Loan Bank System.[1]

In March of 2009, Amherst analysts wrote in a report that banks and insurers are unlikely to sell many mortgage securities as a result of U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s plan to bolster bids for the bonds to revive lending, in part because of a likely accounting change.[2]
