About the Memo:

With the economy three months into the COVID crisis, the impact on servicing continues in several areas:

  • Modeling and projection of mortgage bond interest rates given the fed interventions
  • Modeling of delinquencies related to forbearance
  • Modeling of the primary secondary spread and the aggregator response to the forbearance risk
  • Trading of bulk MSR packages during this crisis

Read the memo to learn how these assumptions have changed and how it affects MSR valuations.

“With the fed intervention, all treasury and mortgage rates have been driven lower. But volatility has slowed down, and, importantly, the mortgage treasury spread has come more in line.”
