The final amendments to regulation AB (or Reg AB II) were finally approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) at the end of August.

Their introduction comes at a time when securitisation volumes are still below pre-crisis levels and the housing market remains stalled. And while the final rule should help bring clarity, it also adds fresh concerns. Public issuers will have to grapple with increased cost and liability that stem from new requirements to provide loan level data.

Which is why this week’s web seminar: The future of housing finance, the mortgage market and securitisation, is so vital.

US Morrison & Foerster partners, and guest speaker Larry Rubenstein, capital markets counsel at Wells Fargo, analyse the issues still plaguing mortgage-backed securities and the wider securitisation market.

As well as Reg AB II, the presenters address the new regulatory changes and how best to cope with them and discuss what hurdles still remain ahead for the industry.
