The Pacific Investment Management Company believes the private mortgage market should be revived before comprehensive GSE reform. In a paper published last week, the investment management firm weighed in on the debate to reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It noted that a few small legislative changes would make a huge difference in bringing private capital back to the housing-finance market. Growth in the housing market will come if policymakers are willing to modify existing laws and regulations governing the private mortgage market, according to PIMCO. The company said that would bring back responsible mortgage lending while boosting economic growth and providing more access to credit.
