Mortgage Guarantee Programme (MGP)

Mortgage Guarantee Programme (MGP)

What is Mortgage Guarantee Programme (MGP)?

  • MGP is undertaken by CSRP and offers ‘first loss’ protection on a mortgage portfolio while the mortgage assets remain on the originator’s books.
  • MGP provides financial institutions with mortgage guarantee facilities for their conventional mortgage loan portfolio.
  • By reducing the credit risk on originators’ mortgage loan portfolio, Originators can improve their Capital Adequacy Ratio.

Product Features

  1. Product Description
    • CSRP will provide ‘first loss’ protection to mortgage originators in Malaysia on a portfolio basis.  
    • No individual loan can be taken out from the mortgage portfolio under protection other than, amongst others, in the case of redemption/prepayment in full or amortisation which results in the outstanding principal balance falling below the protection threshold amount.
  2. Guarantee Coverage
    • Current loan-to-value (CLTV) ratio of the mortgaged property as at the guarantee date is not more than 95%. 
    • Initial guarantee amount is the difference between the current loan amount and the protection threshold amount (e.g., 79.9% of mortgaged property value as at guarantee date). The guarantee amount will reduce in accordance with the individual loan amortisation schedule which will be determined at the guarantee date.
    • The guarantee amount is the difference between the “scheduled” outstanding principal balance and the protection threshold.
  3. Termination of Protection

    Protection will be terminated upon:

    • The “scheduled” outstanding principal balance of the loan falls below the protection threshold amount (e.g., 79.9% of the property value as at Guarantee Date) by way of repayment/prepayment in full or loan amortisation.
    • Non-compliance with Representation, Warranty and Eligibility Criteria.
    • Non-payment of guarantee fee by the originator.
    • Payment of guarantee amount by CSRP to the originator.
  4. Guarantee fee
    • Guarantee fee is either a one-off payment for the entire protection tenure or on an annual basis paid by the originator.
    • Guarantee fee is quoted as a percentage of the total outstanding principal balance of the reference portfolio.
