Briefings

Rules and Regs: March 1, 2016

The U.S. Treasury on Monday announced a collaborative undertaking to help revive housing mortgage markets. Amid investor focus on enhancing investor protections within existing Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities (RMBS) structures, the U.S. Treasury facilitated the effort over 18 months by a large number of mortgage market participants - including investors, mortgage originators and aggregators, mortgage servicers, trustees, rating agencies and others - to identify and address reforms needed to revive the non-agency U.S. residential mortgage markets. See the resulting "Deal Agent Framework" here.
