RMBS Outlook Remains Strong Despite Predicted Rate Hike

DSNews reported on a Kroll Bond Rating Agency release analyzing the impact of a potential Federal Reserve rate increase on RMBS. According to the article, although originations are down 9 percent year-over-year, and refinances are down 33 percent year-over-year, total RMBS issuance has increased 54 percent in the same time period. The report also says that 2017 will be the most lucrative year for RMBS since the housing crisis – surpassing 2015. Kroll projections also show the private label security market will be buoyed by positive pricing, as well as a shift in focus, moving  "away from exclusivity with non-conforming loans" and towards "jumbo and high-balance conforming loans, which aid in the growth of the market."
