Corporate responsibility is an important part of our business and we take it seriously. We are continually committed to the environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) factors and a maintain a focus and management of these issues.
We are a publicly traded real estate investment trust that currently invests primarily in mortgage-related and other assets. We acquire residential mortgage-backed securities, either issued by U.S. government agencies or guaranteed as to principal and interest by U.S. government agencies or U.S. government-sponsored entities and we also acquire mortgage-backed securities issued by private organizations as well as mortgage credit assets. Through our investments, we are proud to help support home ownership in the U.S. as well as the overall U.S. housing and business markets. While we are focused on providing our stockholders an attractive risk-adjusted return we are also committed to responsible ESG practices.
Our board of directors and management team appreciate the importance of ESG and are seeking to better improve our ESG efforts regarding factors that are relevant to our type of business.
