Improving Mortgage Portfolio Performance: Managing Higher Rates and Liquidity Constraints
Tuesday, February 28, 2023, 1:00 p.m. central time
Credit union mortgage portfolios have endured significant market disruptions over the past three years. Record origination volumes at artificially low rates in 2020 and 2021 were followed by rapid rate increases initiated by the Federal Reserve in 2022. As a result, mortgage portfolios are underwater at the same time that credit unions face liquidity headwinds. This webinar will review strategies for repositioning the mortgage portfolio to achieve stronger long-term performance as well as prepare your credit union for regulatory questions.
