“The strong market reception continued for Velocity’s second securitization of 2021, and we are very pleased with the execution we achieved on this transaction,” said Executive Vice President of Capital Markets, Jeff Taylor. “Velocity’s proven business model and the solid performance of our securitizations helped maintain high investor demand that drove spreads tighter by over 9 basis points as compared to our 2021-1 transaction and resulted in a weighted average coupon of 1.75%. Because we strongly believe in the quality of our loans and the capabilities of our special servicing team, we will retain at least 5% of this transaction as we have done with our prior securitizations.”

The Certificates may only be offered and sold in the United States in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act.
