The Great Unbundling

As we noted yesterday, FHFA has decided not only to unbundle second and high-dollar loans from its flat-fee paradigm, but now to do the same for about one in five conventional conforming purchase loans outside these categories.  Together with new cash-out refi fees, the agency is recrafting Fannie and Freddie into an express risk- and mission-pricing construct that alters the essence of the GSEs and thus of the market as a whole.

Deadline Set for D-SIB Resolution Comment

The Federal Register today included the Fed/FDIC D-SIB resolution ANPR, as announced last week (see Client Report DEPOSITINSURANCE115).  As analyzed in our in-depth report (see FSM Report RESOLVE48), the agencies seek comment on whether requiring D-SIBs to have TLAC standards akin to those mandated for G-SIBs would enhance resolvability, as well as seeking input on extending clearing holding company requirements to D-SIBs, disclosure standards in the event of a resolution, and explicit severability plans.

FHFA Advances Equitable Finance With New Fees, Credit Score Options

Building on its 2022 scorecards and January’s up-front fee price hikes, FHFA today announced it will eliminate upfront fees – aka, delivery fees or loan-level price adjustments (LLPAs) – for certain borrowers and affordable mortgage products.  The Agency will also implement targeted increases to the upfront fees for most cash-out refinance loans.  Upfront fees will be eliminated for: first time homebuyers at or below 100% of area median income (AMI) and below 120% AMI in high-cost areas; HomeReady and Home Possible loans, which are Fannie and Freddie’s flagship affordable housing products; HFA Advantage and HFA Preferred loans; and single-family loans supporting the Duty to Serve program.
