Lehman Brothers flexed its muscle in 2007 and once again took the crown as the top U.S. RMBS manager, according to Thomson Financial RMBS manager rankings for 2007. This widened the gap between the top placer and Bear Stearns, which repeated its second-place showing from 2006.

Lehman ended the year selling roughly $95.8 billion in agency and non-agency RMBS and garnered a 10.4% market share with 111 issues, Thomson reported. By comparison, Bear Stearns sold about $83 billion in agency and non-agency RMBS and held a 9% market share with 100 issues.
