About the Memo:
MCT’s MSR Services reviews and modifies MSR assumptions as part of maintaining as accurate a cash flow tool as possible. In that regard, we are implementing a new government prepay model reflecting the latest data from Ginnie pools.
We have modified the prepayment speeds based on three factors:
- Geographic Effect
- “In-the-Money”-ness (the reaction of Ginnie borrowers to refi opportunities as rates decline)
- Loan Balance
Read the memo to learn of our prepay model changes and how it affects MSRlive!.
