Investor interest in residential mortgage servicing rights (MSRs) remains high notwithstanding the headwinds faced by residential mortgage servicers, such as forbearance, record re-financings and increased natural disasters. Not all investors, however, want to own a mortgage servicer, and they increasingly look to alternative ways to participate in the servicing asset, such as private funds investing in excess servicing fees. This GFM teleconference will explore various aspects of investing in MSRs, including requirements and options to hold direct and indirect alternatives to licenses and agency qualification, including considerations in forming funds to hold investments tied to the performance of specific pools of servicing rights. This presentation will include Mayer Brown partners from our Corporate & Securities, Structured Finance and Financial Services Regulatory & Enforcement practices.
