10:14 EDTFNMA, WAC, FMCC, NSM, OCNOIG recommends FHFA actions on nonbank mortgage servicers
The Office of Inspector General issued a report on actions the Federal Housing Finance Agency can take to manage risks from nonbank mortgage servicers such as Ocwen Financial (OCN), Nationstar (NSM) and Walter Investment (WC). The OIG concluded that "while FHFA and the Enterprises have responded well to specific problems at nonbank special servicers, the Agency has not established a risk management process or overall oversight framework to handle some general risks posed by nonbank special servicers." It added, the nonbank special servicers do not have the same capital requirements as a bank, which means they are more susceptible to economic downturns. Such downturns could substantially increase nonperforming loans that require servicer loss mitigation while at the same time impact the ability of the servicer to perform." Reference Link

07:18 EDTWACWalter Investment says current economic conditions favorable for business
The company commented, "The Servicing segment is expected to benefit from improving borrower credit quality and declining delinquency rates which generally drive a reduction in related servicing costs. In recent months we have seen an increase in MSR portfolios available for sale in the market as large depositories shed portfolios associated with non-core clients, strategic MSR sales from non-bank servicers increase and small and mid-sized originators monetize their MSR assets. The market has remained competitive for these assets though the Company anticipates pricing may improve as the significant supply of MSR is absorbed by the market during 2015. Walter Investment remains opportunistic in reviewing potential acquisitions. Active regulatory oversight of the sector continues and the company expects that in the current market participants who have scale, are appropriately capitalized, are compliant with regulatory requirements, and have significant experience and a strong track record in transferring servicing assets will be best positioned to grow their portfolios in the future. Market expectations indicate that originations volume in the United States will grow approximately 7% over 2014 to $1.2 trillion. The broader market remains challenging but has improved over the last couple of months as rates have declined, refinance activity has increased and margins have firmed. Our retention channel has benefited from an increase of "in the money" borrowers in our serviced portfolios while our correspondent lending channel has seen improved volumes. The retail channel remains competitive as purchase money volumes remain relatively light. The company's business plan for 2015 targets strong operational performance in each of its core businesses. Targets for the Servicing, ARM and Insurance businesses include growth of the serviced portfolio of approximately 10%, including additions from the Originations segment as well as a blend of bulk MSR purchases and sub-servicing and combined AEBITDA margins in the range of 14 - 18 bps, consistent with the 2014 combined AEBITDA range."
