10:14 EDTFMCC, NSM, FNMA, WAC, 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
