List of Publicly Traded Mortgage REITs Listed on Major U.S. Exchanges

The companies on this list are real estate investment trusts (REITs) that invest in a wide range of mortgage related securities and debt instruments.

Examples of the most common debt instruments include:

  • Agency residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) (Backed by an agency of the U.S. government)
  • Non-agency residential mortgage-backed securities

There are also a few other instruments that some of the REITs invest in which include:

  • Asset-backed securities (ABS)
  • Commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS)
  • Excess Mortgage Servicing Rights (MSRs)
