Lewis Ranieri, known as the father of securitization, told CNBC Monday that "bonds backed by investor-owned rental properties carry no risk."

CNBC said Ranieri has other regrets about the MBS market, but he's confident about the rental space.

Lewis Ranieri expressed regret that the mortgage-backed securities market imploded the way it did, bringing the U.S. economy along with it.
