NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–KBRA assigns preliminary ratings to 96 classes of mortgage notes from Citigroup Mortgage Loan Trust 2022-INV1 (CMLTI 2022-INV1), a residential mortgage-backed securities transaction fully secured by investment properties and loans that have been subscribed to the agency’s guidelines.
