mortgage-backed passthrough securities -- securities that convey ownership of a fractional part of each mortgage in a pool of mortgages backing the securities. Mortgage payments are sent to the issuer of the securities and then passed through to those who bought the securities. Each security owner shares proportionally the interest and principal payments generated by the underlying pool of mortgages.
