In addition, 17 classes were upgraded and the ratings on 55 classes were affirmed. "Although losses allocated to the trust have been low due to Vanderbilt's practice of repurchasing defaulted loans out of the trust at par, the performance of the company's loans has been worse than initially expected," Fitch said.
