The webinar from January 20th has concluded. Please view the recording below. 

In this webinar, MBA Chief Economist Mike Fratantoni joined MCT COO Phil Rasori to outline the different business cycles and how lenders can set a foundation of resilience to changing markets. Additionally, the webinar gave attendees a look ahead to what we can expect for 2022.

Interest rates, origination volume and profit margins are constantly shifting based on a variety of factors, and it takes an efficient and intelligent operation to stay on top of it all. Most lenders react, rather than act, to changes in the environment.
