MCT Announces Complimentary Webinar Addressing Changes to FINRA’s Mark to Market Rule

SAN DIEGO, Calif, Nov. 9, 2017 – Mortgage Capital Trading, Inc. (MCT), a leading mortgage hedge advisory and secondary marketing software firm, announced that it will be holding a complimentary educational webinar discussing many important changes to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Mark to Market Rule.

The webinar, hosted by the Community Mortgage Lenders of America (CMLA), will guide lenders through all of the mandated rule changes in advance of the required implementation date of June 25, 2018. Lenders will leave the webinar with a good understanding of the rule details, how it will affect their businesses, and how to prepare for it.

According to FINRA Regulatory Notice 16-31, amendments to Rule 4210 will change margin requirements for Covered Agency Transactions, including the TBA transactions central to MCT pipeline hedging strategies. FINRA members will be required to collect daily MTM margin from all counterparties on these transactions. However, the margin is not required to be collected or charged to net capital if the aggregate required but uncollected MTM loss does not exceed $250,000.

Topic:                What the FINRA Mark to Market Rule Means for You

Organizer: Glen Corso, Executive Director at Community Mortgage Lenders of America (CMLA)
Date:                  Thurs., Nov. 16, 2017

Webinar Overview:
Starting June 25, 2018 if a lender’s net mark to market position on covered agency transactions is more than negative $250,000 on a daily basis, their FINRA registered broker dealer will be required to collect the amount that exceeds $250,000. This change is a result of a rules change by the FINRA, which regulates most broker-dealers in the U.S.
