Welcome to the First Issue of MCT⭐Star!

In this monthly newsletter, we will be referencing educational content, press releases, and secondary market events to give you the information all in one place. We hope this convenient summary will empower you to reach greater heights of success as you stay abreast of relevant market events!  

March was another busy month around MCT, as we worked to guide clients through changes at the agencies and deteriorations in the bond market. The “New Normal” predicted by Phil Rasori in our January webinar finally became a reality, as lenders settled into a rising rate environment with increasing competitive pressure.
