February 17, 2017 - Inside MBS & ABS
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currencys denial of favorable capital treatment to a non-agency MBS issued by JPMorgan Chase last year could hinder efforts aimed at convincing banks to return to the non-agency MBS market, according to industry analysts. JPMorgan Chase issued two unique non-agency MBS last year with a total unpaid principal balance of $4.53 billion. The so-called portfolio risk-transfer deals accounted for a whopping 48.6 percent of the prime non-agency MBS issued in 2016. Chase packaged...

The proposal by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency to create a special-purpose national bank charter for financial technology companies, including marketplace lenders, stirred up significantly different views during a panel discussion sponsored this week by the Brookings Institute. The fact that this charter will be designed as one not to support innovation, but to support the biggest and most well-funded players, ends up being bad for consumers because it tilts the market against the true innovators, said Margaret Liu, senior vice president and deputy general counsel for the Conference of State Bank Supervisors. But, Richard Neiman, head of regulatory and government affairs for Lending Club and former New York state banking commissioner, said...

Marketplace lenders could benefit from the development of special-purpose national bank charters for financial technology companies under consideration by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, according to ABS participants. However, the proposal has been met with strong opposition from state regulators, as it would preempt state oversight of certain nonbanks. In December, the OCC requested comments about a potential special-purpose national bank charter for so-called fintech companies, including marketplace lenders. The Structured Finance Industry Group endorsed...

The new administration of President Trump wasted no time in trying to fulfill his campaign promise to roll back the tide of regulation, issuing on the day of his inauguration a freeze on new and pending regulations from executive agencies of the U.S. government. What effect this will have on mortgage lending regulation is unclear, at this point, but its likely to be temporary, industry insiders agree. According to a memo issued by White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, unspecified executive departments and agencies were...

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency recently fined HSBC $32.5 million for failure to correct faulty foreclosure practices in a timely manner as per a consent order originally issued back in 2011 to correct practices that harmed borrowers in the wake of the housing markets collapse. The OCC also said the institution failed to file payment change notices (PCN) that complied with bankruptcy rules, which resulted in roughly $3.5 million in borrower remediation for approximately 1,700 mortgage loan accounts. The banks untimely and missed PCN filing practices did not comply with bankruptcy rules, required the bank to undertake operational enhancements to achieve compliance, and were unsafe and unsound practices, according to the consent order. The bank neither admitted ...
