Exploring Mortgage Servicing Rights (MSR) Valuations
Tuesday, April 11, 2023, 1:00 p.m. central time
Managing your Mortgage Servicing Rights (MSR) portfolio goes beyond mere fiscal responsibility (although that’s important, too.) Certain assumptions as to the value of the loans and the volatility of the marketplace guide the management of the loans in that portfolio. Those who misunderstand those assumptions or apply them incorrectly run the risk of reducing the loans’ values, which can echo loudly in your bottom line.
Additionally, it’s critical to understand servicing profitability drivers given today’s volume challenges in terms of new production loans. That’s why it’s critical to maximize this valuable cash asset to retain the most profitable loans in your pipeline and optimize that overall profitability.
Join MSR experts Tony Paciente, Vimi Vasudiva and Mike Vough from Optimal Blue, along with ACUMA President Peter Benjamin, CMB, to learn the ins and outs of effective MSR portfolio management. Specific lessons will include:
- Gaining a thorough understanding of the MSR asset from a valuation assumption perspective
- Learning the differences between the various approaches in valuing that MSR asset
- Understanding how to implement the industry-leading CompassPoint MSR valuation model
Whether you’re considering retaining servicing, or you already have an existing MSR portfolio, you can’t afford to miss this highly informative and critical webinar.
