White House Nominates New FHFA Inspector General. The Federal Housing Finance Agency soon should have a new Inspector General. Last week, the White House nominated Laura Wertheimer as the FHFA’s new watchdog chief. A Washington-based securities lawyer in private practice, Wertheimer would replace Steve Linick, who resigned last summer to serve as the State Department’s IG. Michael Stevens has been filling in as the FHFA’s acting IG. Wertheimer’s nomination has been forwarded to the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee for consideration.

With originations expected to drop in 2018, will your shop turn to non-QM/non-prime mortgage products as a way to bolster volumes?
