The mortgage meltdown and rising foreclosures have made loss mitigation strategies a top priority for the government and the mortgage industry. Learn about the latest loss mitigation strategies—including innovations in loan modifications—in a valuable new Inside Mortgage Finance audio conference.

Lawmakers are leaning on government officials to extend bailout funding or benefits to homeowners facing foreclosure. And mortgage market players are waiting to see what federally subsidized mortgage relief plans will emerge in early 2009. Will it involve an overhaul of FHA's HOPE for Homeowners program? An expansion of the FDIC's IndyMac pilot program with a government guarantee on modified mortgages? Or some program aimed at helping homeowners and stimulating the housing industry?

This audio conference will help you navigate the ever-changing maze of loss mitigation, loan modifications, and work out opportunities.

Hear directly from federal officials, a legal expert and a major servicer about what's really going on in government and industry today.

These Experts Share Their Insights and Answer Questions:

  • Margaret Burns, Director of the Office of Single Family Program Development, FHA;
  • Michael H. Krimminger, Special Advisor for Policy, Office of the Chairman, FDIC;
  • Laurence E. Platt, Practice Area Leader, K&L Gates LLP;
  • Guy Cecala, Publisher, Inside Mortgage Finance, will moderate.

  • The FDIC's plans to expand its aggressive loan modification initiatives;
  • How servicers can work with investors on mortgage workouts;

After the November elections, how long will it take for a new Congress and White House to pass GSE reform legislation?

I’m confident a bill will be passed the first year.


2 to 3 years. GSE reform is complicated.


Sadly it won’t happen in a Clinton or Trump first term.


Not in my lifetime.
