QRM Risk Retention
January 15, 2015
On October 22, 2014, six federal agencies approved a final rule requiring sponsors of asset-backed securitization transactions to retain risk in those transactions—not only for mortgage-backed securities but other categories of "ABS" as well. The presentation will provide an overview of the final rule—with emphasis on the "Qualified Residential Mortgage" or "QRM" exemption from risk retention. The presenters will provide their views whether the final rule will restart the private MBS market, as well as challenges presented by the complex nature of the final rule.
