Even with the fate of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac still quite unclear, and Dodd-Frank related mortgage rulemaking in process, several opportunities exist for private investment in the mortgage market. Mortgage REITs are continuing to grow and playing an important role in the mortgage markets. As the mortgage market continues to evolve, traditional agency mortgage REIT models are being complemented by mortgage REITs that are focused on distressed mortgages; mortgage origination; and mortgage servicing activities. Private equity and other non-bank entrants into the mortgage market also are finding these attractive investments. Additionally, the success of the covered bond liquidity channel in other countries makes a strong argument for the adoption of covered bond legislation in the United States. This webinar will explore the existing sources and structures of private capital liquidity channels in today's housing finance market.

The following information will be considered at this webinar:

  • The opportunities for private capital entering the mortgage market;
  • The mortgage REIT market;
  • Considerations for structuring certain activities within a mortgage REIT;
  • Mortgage servicing assets;
  • Nonbank participation in the mortgage market; and
  • The covered bond market.
