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.
