J.P. Morgan is also in the market with the first U.K. securitization of flexible mortgages, a product which allows borrowers to prepay their mortgages without penalty and redraw on the mortgages at a later date.

The GBP300 million transaction, called First Flexible, is also the first securitization of U.K. mortgages from the Irish bank First Active, a bank that has previously issued deals backed by its Irish mortgage portfolio in the Celtic series. It is split into a GBP276 million chunk rated triple-A by S&P and Fitch and a single-A piece worth GBP24 million.
