    Breakout Session,

    Residential Track

    In a competitive mortgage market where every dollar counts, mortgage companies that are trading loans on a mandatory and/or best efforts basis need to be aware of optimal accounting and prudent pipeline management practices.  This session will address leverage, investment horizon, business strategy, risk policies, target hedge ratios, and financial statement accuracy and transparency.  What’s more, we’ll cover how hedging needs and objectives differ between different institutions (depository banks, REITs and IMBs).
