DBRS Discontinues Rating on Castilho Mortgages No. 1

RMBS
March 08, 2019

DBRS Ratings Limited (DBRS) discontinued its AA (sf) rating on the Class A notes issued by Castilho Mortgages No. 1 (the Issuer).

The discontinuation reflects the full repayment of the Class A Notes as at the payment date on 28 February 2019. Prior to their repayment in full, the outstanding principal balance of the Class A Notes was EUR 711,667,605.63.

Notes:
All figures are in euros unless otherwise noted.

The principal methodology applicable to the rating is: “Master European Structured Finance Surveillance Methodology”.

In DBRS’s opinion, a discontinued-repaid rating action does not warrant the application of the entire principal methodology, as the bond has been repaid in full.

Other methodologies referenced in this transaction are listed at the end of this press release. These may be found on www.dbrs.com at: http://www.dbrs.com/about/methodologies.
