Security Spread Commitment Unlocks Industry’s First Open Mortgage Loan Exchange

BAM Marketplace facilitates bids between unapproved counterparties using MCT’s patent-pending Security Spread Commitment.

Rather than committing to a fixed price, buyers bid in the form of a spread to the underlying security associated with the loan, giving the seller certainty while allowing market movement to continue.

After selecting a security spread commitment as the winning bid, the seller immediately completes the investor approval process, which is currently being completed within an average of five business days.

BAMCO Offers Co-Issue Transactions Without Leaving the Platform

BAMCO brings co-issue loan sale transactions directly into MCT’s whole loan trading platform, making the process of selling co-issue more convenient and transparent. BAMCO supports live, flow-based, loan-level MSR pricing, expanding execution options for sellers while creating new client acquisition opportunities for buyers.

While co-issue executions via agency integrations have always been and will continue to be included in your loan sale best execution analysis, BAMCO brings a new section featuring direct co-issue pricing for both approved and unapproved buyers. Co-issue buyers have the choice to deliver standard grid-based co-issue pricing or loan-level bid tape co-issue pricing.

“BAM Marketplace is the only loan exchange where sellers can receive bids from unapproved buyers. Through our proprietary ‘security spread commitment’ methodology, MCT firmly holds its position as the gold standard in best execution and moves one step closer to the ultimate goal – when every loan can be priced by every investor.” – Curtis Richins, President, Mortgage Capital Trading

Learn How Buyers & Sellers Interact on BAM Marketplace

During 2020 market volatility, investors bought less and sellers ran into liquidity issues, especially for key loan types such as low-FICO government. To help clients through this time, BAM Marketplace was created to connect distressed sellers with would-be buyers, particularly agency-approved lenders within the MCT client base without previous correspondent investing experience.

Bid Auction Manager (BAM)® is a platform within MCTlive!® that integrates with existing lender and investor processes to encrypt bid tapes so that they can be securely and efficiently priced by investors. Investors then load tapes back into MCTlive! where they reside in a centralized bid tape repository that can be easily reviewed to achieve Best Execution. Save time, improve margins, and securely transfer bid tapes with a BAM!

Automate the process of pricing bid tapes and accepting commitments for MCT clients. Because MCT AutoBid is built into MCTlive!, pricing is instant providing the best possible seller experience. No more organizing, normalizing, pricing, or returning bid tapes and commitment requests via spreadsheets and email – just fast, accurate bid tape pricing to improve the seller experience and grow market share. MCT AutoBid will eventually be expanded to support non-MCT clients.
