SFIG Sends Letter to Senate and House Conferees

On December 11, 2017, SFIG sent a letter to the Senate and House tax reform conferees to express our priorities and concerns specific to structured finance and securitization. SFIG believes that, as a result of the proposed changes to critical interest deductions, consumers may see a decrease in disposable income and potentially decline in home values. As a result, we are concerned that loan performance may suffer across the financial system, including credit card, auto, mortgage, and student lending, resulting ultimately in reduced availability of credit to consumers.
