Vining Sparks will present a webinar on June 4 at 10 a.m. CT exclusively for credit unions about mortgage market updates and opportunities. Kevin Smith, director of Investment Product Strategies, will be the expert speaker. This is the sixth in the 2020 webinar series.
Agency-backed mortgage securities play an important role in depository portfolios. Currently, to say the mortgage market is in a state of flux would be an understatement. With mortgage rates at or near all-time lows, Fed intervention, and a slowing economy, it is challenging to stay on top of recent happenings and where relative value might exist. With these points in mind, this webinar will cover current market trends, mortgage rates, prepayment expectations, and a look at relative value.
What you will learn:
• Current market trends and how they affect your institution’s portfolio
• The importance of solid prepayment assumptions, especially now
• Where we see relative value in the mortgage market
• Resources available to help you manage current and prospective positions
The webinar will last approximately one hour. Register here.
