  • Publication number: 20150324905
    Abstract: A computer system, and methods for making and using it, for changing digital electrical signals to generate a valuation of a fractional interest in a contingent interest in property, the computer apparatus including: an input device operable for converting input data representing property into input digital electrical signals representing the input date; a digital electrical computer having a processor, the processor electrically connected to the input device to receive the input digital electrical signals, the processor programmed to change3 the input digital electrical signals to produce modified digital electrical signals representing a valuation of a fractional interest in a contingent interest in the property associated with at least one lease default condition for the property; a memory electrically connected to the processor; and wherein the processor manipulates further digital electrical signals to generate at least one document for the contingent interest by inserting the valuation in pre-existing t

  • Patent number: 8510190
    Abstract: Illustratively, there can be a securitization system that is comprised of a computer or computers using a network, and a process, for the conversion of assets into marketable securities. In one embodiment, the securitization system includes a distribution system to distribute at least some of the marketable securities generated by the securitization system to one or more buyers. The process may utilize a new definition of securitization that expands the universe of securitizable assets, the universe of asset securitization methodologies, and the respective universes of securities and investment assets that can be designed and generated thereby.

  • Patent number: 8396779
    Abstract: A machine and method including a computer configured to generate and display multiple computer screens. A first computer receives data representing a first component of property and a second component of the property from at least one other computer, the property being a fixed-income asset, and is programmed to manipulate the data to generate one yield/discount rate for the first component and another yield/discount rate for the second component and to display the one yield/discount rate on a monitor in a first computer screen generated by the first computer and the other yield/discount rate on a monitor in one of the first computer screen and another computer screen generated by the first computer, and to compute purchase prices for the components in consummating a sale and corresponding purchase of the first component to one buyer and a sale and corresponding purchase of the second component to another buyer.
