Riding the FHA/Ginnie Mae Wave: Today's Opportunities and Challenges
An Inside Mortgage Finance Webinar
Recorded Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2012
Over the past five years, FHA lending and Ginnie Mae securitization have soared as the two programs have helped fill the void created by the mortgage crisis and the collapse of the non-agency market. And that growth has created both opportunities and challenges for mortgage market players looking to expand their government-insured mortgage business.
With more than a trillion dollars in new FHA and Ginnie Mae activity in recent years, many firms have dramatically improved their bottom line by significantly expanding their government-insured mortgage business. But that expansion has also created new risks for FHA and Ginnie Mae.
Learn about the important steps FHA and Ginnie Mae are taking to better monitor lender and issuer performance and what firms can do to limit their liability at an important new webinar from the folks at Inside Mortgage Finance. Join us for “Riding the FHA/Ginnie Mae Wave: Today's Opportunities and Challenges.” Hear directly from senior FHA and Ginnie Mae executives about evolving new policies at these important agencies. You’ll also receive industry insight from legal and lending experts.
FHA is facing rising delinquencies with limited loss reserves. And increasingly the agency has looked to lenders to indemnify the agency from FHA losses. Ginnie Mae, meanwhile, is seeing a surge in new issuer applications as smaller firms look to access the program amidst a decline in wholesale buyers. The agency expects only the highest quality performance from its issuers. That means approving issuers who demonstrate a sound understanding of the financial responsibilities of the program and who have the financial capacity to sustain those responsibilities. Ginnie wants long-term partners with financial capability to make servicing advances and has developed an internal scorecard to show issuers how they stack up against peers.
It’s a changing FHA/Ginnie Mae world and you can learn about all the important developments: Listen to the recording of this important webinar.
