Mortgage assets, which came under heavy scrutiny during the last financial crisis, have continued to occupy a central role in US/global financial markets. The $10 trillion sector came into additional focus recently with the release of a new blueprint for overhauling Fannie & Freddie, the GSEs that back ~50% of the nation’s mortgage market. The GSEs have been in government conservatorship since the financial crisis and remain key to global credit markets.
Our distinguished panel will provide perspectives on this key recent development, as well as current performance outlook, impact on related markets such as Repo and newer development such as the growth of non-bank players in this market.
