About Author: Brian Honea Previous: Primary Residential Mortgage Expands Footprint in Utah Next: Court Finds in Favor of MERS The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) advanced three legislative proposals in 2015 in order to provide regulatory relief for insured depository institutions, according to the OCC’s 2015 Annual Report titled “Safe, Sound, Fair” released on Monday.The OCC and several other government agencies reviewed their regulations in 2015 as required by the Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Act (EGRPRA) of 1996 in order to identify outdated or burdensome regulations for depository institutions.“If it is clear that a regulation is unduly burdensome, and if we have the authority to make changes to eliminate that burden,” Comptroller of the Currency Thomas Curry said. “We will act.” Curry promised to “work with Congress to remove unnecessary burdens” when such changes require legislative action.The first legislative proposal would modify a law that would give federal savings associations authority to diversify their portfolios without changing their charters or supervisors, which is a modification of a law that requires savings associations to devote a fixed portion of their balance sheets to certain types of assets.The second legislative proposal extends the examination cycle for community banks. Currently, banks with more than $500 million in total assets must be examined at least once every 12 months. For banks with fewer assets, institutions designated as “well capitalized, and institutions with high supervisory ratings, the period is once every 18 months. The OCC proposed that Congress raise the asset threshold from $500 million to $750 million for the extended exam cycle in order to qualify more well-managed banks for the extended exam cycle.For the third legislative proposal, the OCC recommended that Congress exempt community banks from the Volcker rule, which is the provision of the Dodd-Frank act that prohibits banks from engaging in speculative investments for their own benefit. The OCC proposed that banks with less than $10 billion in assets (and typically do not engage in the complex trading covered by the Volcker rule) should be exempted from the Volcker rule, provided that the institution is not controlled by an institution with more than $10 billion in assets.The OCC “does not believe [community banks] should have to commit resources to determine if any compliance obligations under the rule would apply,” given “the nominal risk that [community] institutions could pose to the financial system,” according to Toney Bland, Senior Deputy Comptroller for Midsize and Community Bank Supervision.The OCC, the Fed, the FDIC, and the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council are required to review regulations every 10 years under the EGRPRA in order to identify outdated or otherwise unnecessary regulatory requirements for depository institutions. The agencies divided the regulations into 12 categories and published four groups of three in the Federal Register asking for comment, then held six EGRPRA outreach meetings in Los Angeles, Boston, Kansas City, Dallas, Chicago, and Arlington, Virginia, in a one-year period from December 2014 to December 2015.Click here to view the OCC’s complete 2015 Annual Report.

However, what is the actual state of the industry when it comes to AI? Does the ground-level reality live up to the futuristic associations the name conjures? These were just some of the questions explored during a recent MReport webinar entitled “Intelligent Lending: Roadmap to ROI Using AI Technology,” presented by AI Foundry.You can view a recording of the full presentation by clicking here.MReport’s “Intelligent Lending” webinar presented a roundtable-style discussion that enlisted the talents and insights of four subject-matter experts:Stephen Butler, Founder and President, AI FoundryJames Deitch, Co-Founder & CEO, Teraverde Management Advisors; Author, “Digitally Transforming the Mortgage Banking Industry”Manish Garg, VP, Product Management, Ellie MaeNate Spiegel, VP, Process Improvement & Change Execution, Citizens BankThe webinar kicked off with a look at some of the ways artificial intelligence can help tackle challenges such as declining profit margins and attempts to streamline and improve the customer process. The panel discussed how robotic agents can replace laborious, manual processes involving calculating, indexing, and filing. Butler observed that, while robotic process automation has not consistently decreased costs, the combination of AI and intelligent processing automation could help solve for that. The group also discussed how AI could help connect customers with the back office and provide immediate updates as to the status of their documents or applications.Deitch also noted that AI can perform income analysis for most borrowers, including the self-employed. Factoring in other ways that AI could help speed things up, Ellie Mae’s Garg estimated that AI could help shave 5-10 days off the timeline of a loan application.The discussion then turned to questions of just how far along the industry really is when it comes to adoption of AI. The consensus was that, although AI holds enormous potential, it’s still very early days as far as implementation within the mortgage and servicing industries. Spiegel noted that most regional banks are still in the beginning stages of building data science and engineering teams internally, as well as engaging with external vendors and technology providers on proof-of-concept initiatives.For the most part, Deitch said, efforts at the moment are focused on the “low-hanging fruit”—areas where AI can more easily be tested or incorporated into existing processes.The group agreed that AI is a topic that tends to be surrounded by a number of misconceptions, such as the belief that AI will inherently cause bias in decision-making or make most jobs redundant. While AI can automate many key processes, Garg suggested that AI can ideally be used to augment existing processes and technologies, allowing them to make better decisions and react according to strong, data-driven strategies.Citizens Bank’s Spiegel also dismissed concerns that AI poses insurmountable challenges from a regulatory risk perspective.To hear the full discussion, including the panel’s thoughts on basic steps companies looking to incorporate AI into their workflow can take to get started, click here to access the recording.If you enjoy this webinar, please also listen to MReport and AI Foundry’s previous presentation, “Intelligent Lending: The Rise of AI.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save Previous: How Past Disasters Continue to Impact Single-Family Rentals Next: GSE NPL Sales: Working Toward ‘Favorable Outcomes for Borrowers’ Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribe AI AI Foundry artificial intelligence intelligent lending MReport roadmap to roi using ai technology Webinars 2019-06-18 David Wharton Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / The AI Factor: Charting the Industry’s Road Ahead Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img  Print This Post Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The AI Factor: Charting the Industry’s Road Ahead The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago June 18, 2019 1,104 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Technology Related Articles Tagged with: AI AI Foundry artificial intelligence intelligent lending MReport roadmap to roi using ai technology Webinars About Author: David Wharton Sign up for DS News Daily Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agolast_img read more

Goldman Sachs Rebounds on Mortgage-Backed Securities

That allowed Goldman to sell some notes to the Fed, according to people familiar with the matter, while even bonds that were ineligible for central bank purchases rallied after the Fed stepped in.Goldman executed a few large trades with key clients and also approached several other structured credit hedge funds to see if they wanted to trade. The firm saw an increase of as much as 75% compared to regular volumes for similar trades as of early April, one of the people said.According to Bloomberg, Goldman was confident it could find buyers for any bonds it took on and wouldn’t need to warehouse them for a long period.The central bank announced last month it’s buying unlimited amounts of mortgage securities to keep borrowing costs low, although it excluded the private U.S. mortgages that are packaged into non-agency mortgage-backed securities. It also set up programs to ensure more credit flows to businesses and expanded its Money Market Mutual Fund Liquidity Facility. After the announcement, Goldman also bought securities from money market funds to sell to the Fed.

Sign up for DS News Daily Share Save A Look at ‘Economically Integrated’ Neighborhoods Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago About Author: Eric C. Peck Related Articles A new Redfin study analyzed the mix of affordable and high-end homes in neighborhoods across 30 of the largest American cities to determine which are the most economically-integrated. Overall, one in five residential properties across those 30 cities were in economically-integrated neighborhoods, or areas with roughly equal numbers of affordable and high-end homes.Seattle took the top spot, as more than half (54.2%) of its homes in 2020 were located in neighborhoods with about the same amount of affordable and high-end homes.Redfin defines an “affordable home” as a property with a monthly mortgage payment that’s no more than 30% of the local median monthly household income as of 2019. In Seattle, where the median 2019 income was $102,486, that would be a home with a monthly mortgage payment of no more than $2,562, or a total market value of $786,500. Seattle’s tech boom has resulted in increased incomes for many (but not all) residents.Washington, D.C., was the only other city where nearly half of the number of homes (49.5%) were in economically-integrated neighborhoods. Boston at 41.6% and Denver at 41% rounded out the top four.The findings in Seattle and Washington, D.C., differ greatly from a city like Los Angeles, where 79.1% of the homes are in high-end neighborhoods, and Oklahoma City, where almost all homes (96.7%) are in affordable neighborhoods.“When affluent Americans cluster in luxury gated communities, their wealth stays concentrated in those areas,” said Redfin Lead Economist Taylor Marr. “When affluent Americans share neighborhoods, parks, and restaurants with lower- and middle-income Americans, wealth and economic opportunity is distributed more evenly throughout our cities.”And while Seattle has a reputation for being one of the most expensive places to live in the nation, local leaders have made great strides in recent years when it comes to balancing out expensive neighborhoods with affordable housing.Seattle officials have used upzoning—altering zoning regulations to allow for dense multifamily buildings, instead of just single-family homes, in order to expand housing supply and provide less expensive options for families who can’t afford to buy single-family homes. The Seattle City Council voted as recently as 2019 to upzone 27 additional neighborhoods and require developers in those areas to include low-income apartments in their buildings or pay fees.“Some neighborhoods may appear to have a good balance of affordable and high-end homes, when in reality it’s just an affordable neighborhood transitioning into a high-end neighborhood due to gentrification,” Marr said.The share of Seattle homes that are in economically integrated neighborhoods increased from 48.7% in 2016 to 54.2% in 2020. Over the same period, the share of homes that are in high-end neighborhoods decreased from 39.9% to 15.6%, and the share of homes that are in affordable neighborhoods increased from 11.3% to 30.3%.Nearly half (49.5%) of Washington, D.C.’s, homes in 2020 were located in economically integrated neighborhoods, little changed from 2016. However, during the same period, the share of homes in high-end neighborhoods decreased from 32% to 15%, and the share of homes that are in affordable neighborhoods increased from 18.6% to 35.5%.Using Redfin’s methodology, an affordable home in Washington, D.C., (based on the 2019 median income of $92,266) is a property with a monthly mortgage payment of no more than $2,307, or a total market value of $708,200.Click here to see more from Redfin study.center_img gentrification Home Buying HOUSING mortgage Multifamily Redfin Taylor Marr 2021-02-19 Eric C.
