Improve Pricing & Preserve Day-One Margin with the Base Rate Generator

The Base Rate Generator is an industry-changing solution that allows mortgage lenders to directly inform their front-end rate sheet pricing with their back-end capital markets executions. By combining live agency API connections, co-issue executions, aggregator pricing, and custom TBA indications, the MCT Base Rate Generator allows mortgage lenders to improve margin management and competitive performance.

The Base Rate Generator was developed with direct input from clients of all sizes and includes industry-first features that satisfy lenders whether they securitize, deliver to the cash window, or prefer working exclusively with aggregators. Custom TBA indications on illiquid coupons can be incorporated directly, along with float carry and specified settlement calculations. Lenders can use the spec margin holdback feature to systematically withhold or pass-through the associated pay ups increasingly prevalent across the investor pricing spectrum. Best execution blending functionality supports selecting the second or third best execution as the pricing basis, or an average of the top several, to smooth out and protect against margin-killing outliers that may not be available for delivery on the back end.
