FHFA Official: GSEs Move Slowly With Common Security Platform

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are moving forward slowly on the common securitization platform even after the Federal Housing Finance Agency recently narrowed the project, according to an agency official. Bob Ryan, a special advisor to the FHFA, told attendees at last week’s Mortgage Bankers Association Secondary Market Conference that the development of a common GSE securitization platform would take several years. The Finance Agency’s 2014 strategic plan for the GSEs includes clarifying the scope of the CSP project, which has been in the works for over a year.

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

Yes, definitely. We’re planning a launch.


No. It’s still difficult compliance/regulatory-wise.


Maybe. It’s under consideration.


Not now. But things could change as 2018 progresses.
