Approximately $3.42 Billion of Mortgage-Backed Securities Rated

New York, June 16, 2005 -- Moody's Investors Service has assigned a rating of Aaa to the senior certificates issued in Park Place Securities Series 2005-WHQ2 transaction, and ratings ranging from Aa1 to Ba1 to the subordinate certificates in the deal.

The securitization is backed by subprime mortgage loans originated through Ameriquest's wholesale channel using underwriting guidelines that are slightly less stringent than those used by Ameriquest's retail channel. The ratings are based primarily on the credit quality of the loans and on various forms of credit enhancement including deep loan-level lender-paid mortgage insurance ("MI"), pool insurance policy, subordination, overcollateralization, excess interest and allocation of losses.

The transaction's structure utilizes MI for approximately 69.93% of the loan pool. Radian Guaranty Inc. (Radian) rated Aa3 by Moody's, provides the MI coverage. The Radian MI absorbs a significant amount of the risk associated with the underlying loans by reducing severity of loss if the insured loans default.

Approximately 99% of the collateral will be insured by a pool insurance policy issued by Radian. This policy will cover losses to the extent that such losses exceed 2.90% of the aggregate principal balance of the collateral balance as of the cut-off date and up to a limit of 3.50% of the aggregate collateral balance as of the cut-off date.

The credit quality of the loan pool is consistent with the mortgage loan pools backing recent Ameriquest wholesale securitizations. Park Place deals are different from traditional Ameriquest deals in that the Servicer will be a party other than Ameriquest. In this transaction, HomEq Servicing Corporation will act as Master Servicer, but future Park Place deals may involve different servicing entities. Moody's views HomEq as a strong servicer of subprime loans, as evidenced by its SQ1 servicer rating.
