THERE YOU GO, A BIG TREE OF SHELL COMPANIES TO CONFUSE THE PUBLIC BUT AMHERST SEEMS TO BE THE MAIN OFFSHOOT. WHO’S AMHERST?
Amherst Holdings, LLC, a holding company for businesses focused on the mortgage sector, today announced the completion of a $225 million investment from a group of private investors. Amherst intends to use the capital to enhance its strong capital and liquidity positions, bolster its loan-level analytic tools, and expand the sales and trading activities of its established broker-dealer subsidiary, Amherst Securities Group, LP (“Amherst Securities”), in the residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) and related markets. Amherst has raised a combination of common equity and senior participating debt from a group of investors led by Stone Point Capital, a global private equity firm based in Greenwich, CT that invests exclusively in the financial services industry. The other investors are leading institutional investors that in aggregate manage more than $80 billion of dedicated alternative investment capital.
“I am very excited to announce this partnership with an outstanding group of investors,” said Sean Dobson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Amherst Holdings. “Through their sponsorship, Stone Point and our new partner group have enabled the Amherst companies to expand services at a time when research, risk management and RMBS experience are in tremendous demand. The additional capital will be used primarily to provide additional liquidity and market-making services for our clients and hire new sales and trading professionals to enhance our capabilities.”
Charles A. Davis, Chief Executive Officer of Stone Point said: “We are delighted to be teaming up with Sean Dobson and his partners at Amherst during a time of unprecedented volatility in the mortgage sector. The Amherst team has a deep knowledge of the mortgage securities market that has served its clients well. Amherst has operated until now as a highly profitable partnership owned and operated by its employees, and it will now have the additional growth capital necessary to take advantage of the emerging opportunities in this market.”
Stone Point Capital led the transaction on behalf of Trident IV, L.P.
The capital infusion is intended to be deployed through the company’s two principal operating subsidiaries, Amherst Securities, a specialist market-maker in U.S. RMBS, and Amherst Derivatives Trading LLC, a consultancy and derivatives trading platform. The Amherst companies represent a comprehensive risk management, research and investment platform for participants in the U.S. single-family mortgage markets.

Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Amherst
Mr. Dobson is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Amherst Holdings, LLC, a research and analytics driven financial services holding company that sponsors and develops a broad array of companies assisting institutional investors with their US real estate related exposures.
With more than 25 years of experience analyzing, pricing, originating, servicing and managing a broad range of real estate related risks, Mr. Dobson is widely recognized as one of the leading strategists in the industry and an expert in all facets of the mortgage markets and their related derivatives.
For over 20 years, the Amherst companies have provided institutional investors with a suite of financial services related to the U.S. mortgage markets and securitized products. In the period leading up to the Global Financial Crises, Amherst research uncovered the mispricing and attendant risk developing in the US residential real estate market. In late 2005, Amherst Holdings suspended conduit operations, and formulated directionally short investment strategies for a global client base. These extensive data resources and proprietary analytical tools have been a key driver for positioning Amherst Holdings as market leaders in the areas of behavioral economics and real estate lending risk analysis.
Under Mr. Dobson’s leadership, Amherst Holdings’ advice and performance during the financial crisis earned Amherst Holdings merit and recognition as a valued advisor to many federal agencies and policy makers endeavoring to construct a more stable set of housing policies and programs.
Amherst’s Dobson: Bank stakes in bonds not enough (June 2019)
Requiring banks to have a stake, or “skin-in-the-game,” in asset-backed securities is a key theme of U.S. President Barack Obama’s plan to overhaul financial regulations. It goes to the heart of securitization, or the packaging and selling of loans as bonds, which critics say pushed too much risk onto investors and eroded lending standards to irresponsible levels.
Dobson, speaking at the Reuters Investment Outlook Summit in New York, said underwriting banks have taken interests in many asset-backed securities, but that failed to stop loose underwriting standards that led to the worst financial crisis since the 1930s.
Dobson is leading Austin, Texas-based Amherst’s brisk expansion into the turbulent mortgage securities market, as larger brokerages and banks suffer under the weight of bad investments.
