MBA: Don’t Blur Lines Between Primary/Secondary Markets
November 3, 2017
The Mortgage Bankers Association is worried about blurred lines between primary and secondary market activities when it comes to Federal Housing Finance Agency objectives, especially in the wake of new technologies. The trade group said there should be a clear separation of the two market activities. In response to the FHFA’s strategic plan for 2018 through 2022, the MBA said it will be important for the agency to make sure the GSEs only undertake activities that support secondary market liquidity, and not displace lenders and vendors operating in the primary single-family and multifamily finance markets.
