Class B of Bear Stearns Global Issuance series 2001-A, a resecuritization of the class B certificate from Bear Stearns Asset Home Loan Owner Trust series 2001-A, has been downgraded from BB to CCC by Fitch Ratings.The underlying trust is collateralized by subordinate-lien loans with high loan-to-value ratios that were originated by Conseco Finance Corp. and are serviced by Conseco. The rating agency attributed the downgrade to the depletion of overcollateralization and a reduction in the excess spread of the underlying trust's mortgage pool due to poor loan performance.
