The report  “details Fitch Ratings’ projections for future credit events and losses on mortgage loan pools referenced by GSE credit risk transfer transactions.” The report spotlights several important takeaways, including loss projections trending downward and the impact of last year’s hurricanes.Fitch reports that their reference pool loss projections have lowered on every transaction compared to their previous review in June 2017. Fitch’s report reads, “At the ‘BBBsf’ rating stress level, projected losses were revised downward by an average of 23 basis points (bps) as a percentage of the remaining pool balance, reflecting strong collateral performance, increased home price appreciation and a shorter term to maturity.”Fitch’s Projections Report shows continuing strong performance for transactions with “at least 12 months’ seasoning,” with the average 60+ day delinquency percentage for 60 percent to 80 percent loan-to-value (LTV) reference pools standing at 20 bps. The highest percentage reported is 43 bps. The average increases to 38 bps for 81 percent to 97 percent LTV reference pools, with the largest percentage for this group at 67 bps.With home prices rising nationwide, it’s no surprise that Fitch found home prices in the pools examined to have increased by an average of 20 percent. Fitch’s report adds that “Consequently, the lower mark-to-market LTV ratios of the reference pools have driven current loss expectations lower relative to deal closing.”Fitch found that strong home price appreciation had driven voluntary mortgage insurance cancellations higher than expected. “For borrowers who are eligible to cancel but have not yet done so,” the report reads, “Fitch increased the haircut to the MI benefit to reflect the possibility that they could cancel sooner than the model currently expects.”Fitch reports that the delinquency percentage for loans in areas affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma increased from 1.0 percent to 5.6 percent between October and December 2017. However, delinquency for the entire mortgage pool increased only 16 bps, on average. According to the report, “Fitch expects loan losses from the 2017 hurricanes to be immaterial to the credit risk of the rated classes.”You can read the full Fitch GSE CRT Loss Projections report, in PDF form, by clicking here.

High profile estate agency quits Rightmove to go ‘exclusive’ with Zoopla

Detailed research has shown the ever-rising value of Zoopla to our business,” he says.“Last year alone, Zoopla delivered more revenue than its nearest competitor for roughly half the cost.“As business owners, the return on investment we receive from every supplier is always a key consideration.  The fact is, Zoopla delivers us great quality applicants who convert into fantastic tenants.“Zoopla’s ascendency in the London rental market has been well documented and aligns well with our business ambitions. This is further enhanced by the stable of tech products on offer- many of which we use.”Andy Marshall, Chief Commercial Officer (left), Zoopla, says: “Base needs little introduction. It is a genuine force of influence in the industry and we have much respect for Kristjan and An, who lead the business.“It is results orientated, and our commitment to driving growth in listings, valuation and applicant leads is designed to support its business objectives in both the short and long term.”Read more about the ‘Rightmove revolt’. Base Property Andy Marshall Rightmove krystjan byfield Zoopla March 20, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Students hold discussion with director John Singleton on ‘Higher Learning’, on-campus race relations

first_imgStudents gathered to discuss the current climate of race, class and social structure in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center Thursday night with USC alumnus and award-winning director John Singleton. Prior to the discussion, students screened John Singleton’s 1995 film Higher Learning, a movie focused on the personal and social progression of a group of diverse students during their first year of college.Approximately 60 students were in the room for the event hosted by the Beta Omega Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.Levi Powell, vice president of the Beta Omega Chapter of Kappa Psi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., said that they held the screening because the movie reflected some racially charged events that took place in the past school year.Throughout the conversation, many participants referred to the May 4 incident when more than 79 Los Angeles Police Department officers broke up a student party where attended by mostly black and Latino students. The incident led to the social movement among students that became the USChangeMovement.John Singleton acknowledged the similarities between the recent events on campus and the 19-year-old movie. Singleton also said the movie looked at the core issues that lead to these familiar incidents.“What I liked about this film is that it dealt with alienation,” John Singleton. “This wasn’t a dig on USC, but it could have been any university anywhere.”During the discussion many students spoke about their experiences with incidents of racial profiling on and around campus, not only by the LAPD but also by the Dept. of Public Safety.USC Professor of Law Jody Armour, who moderated a forum following the May 4 incident and another panelists in the discussion, responded to students, acknowledging the ongoing concerns.“These issues are perennial,” Armour said. “It’s a very embarrassing and uncomfortable reality. You have honest people who are being discriminators.”Vice President of Student Affairs Ainsley Carry was in graduate school when Higher Learning first came out and said he felt like he could relate to it.“These issues mattered,” Carry said. “Every single issue in that movie could have been in 2014. These issues have existed for a very long time. We have to start fixing and healing by these conversations.”Students — some who were born the year the movie was released — said they were impacted by the movie’s timeliness and reliability.“The movie was powerful in its ability to be relatable to everybody,” Kemdah Stroud, a freshman majoring in neuroscience, “but sadly it’s very representative of my experience at USC in regards to isolation and discrimination.”Ryan Cole, a senior majoring in broadcast and digital journalism, agreed that the film reflected some of his experiences on campus but that much progress has been and is being made.“A lot of racial prejudices and stereotypes still hinder the forward progress of the student community at this university,” Cole said. “However, I do feel that the student body is active in trying to do all they can to make things better.”Singleton is currently working on a movie about the late rapper Tupac and activist Assata Shakur.last_img read more
