Recent regulatory bulletins on vendor risk management created both an imperative and an opportunity to step back and strategically re-evaluate how the use of third parties aligns with a servicer’s business model, business objectives and risk appetite. For vendors in the servicing industry, the costs to demonstrate compliance have pushed many leaders to rethink how they prepare for and respond to clients’ requests in a more efficient way. We will look at the strategic implications of new regulations for both servicers and vendors.

4:45 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Best Practices for Onboarding MSRs
Roberto Hernandez, Partner, PRICEWATERHOUSECOOPERS LLP
Michael Forester, Managing Director & Co-Founder, CROSSCHECK COMPLIANCE LLC
Craig Freel, VP, Portfolio Management, ROUNDPOINT MORTGAGE SERVICING CORP.

Restrictions on banks’ ability to hold MSRs due to Basel III have opened the flood gate of servicing rights moving from banks to non-banks in significant numbers. Add to this the already hostile regulatory environment and it’s no wonder servicers are seeing increased scrutiny of servicing work around transfers. This expert panel will review the key steps required to smoothly onboard mortgage servicing transfers, as well as look at the common challenges and how best to navigate today’s unique servicing opportunity.
