imn_residential_mortgage_servicing_conferenceNew York, NY (March 26-27)
The annual IMN Residential Mortgage Servicing Rights Conference attracts more than 400 participants to New York City, 180 of them from banks, non-bank originators, mortgage investors, hedge funds, and other institutional investors. The IMN forum is the only opportunity on the calendar for owners and administrators of mortgage servicing rights to get together for a dedicated day and a half and discuss nothing but mortgage servicing rights. Given our climate of heightened regulatory scrutiny and low interest rates, it is even more important for the $10 trillion MSR industry to gather and examine the latest developments.

A More Perfect Union – The Agenda

After the morning’s keynote speech, thoughts will turn to developments in policy and regulation. You will hear from a panel  of experts on what is happening in the areas of laws and regulations and what your company should be doing to remain in the loop.
The industry’s leading economists will then discuss the economic conditions driving homeownership and the prospects for another housing bubble.

After lunch, attention will focus on the change of leadership at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and its implications for the CFPB’s priorities in 2018. Then, a panel will examine the issue of responsibly extending access to credit across the current and future mortgage markets.
The final discussion in the packed schedule centers on the implications of the changes within HUD for the future of housing.


The 2018 Five Star Government Forum is addressed by some of the industry’s most impressive thought leaders. These compelling contributors are highly influential among their peers and other representatives of the mortgage industry. Collectively, they have built decades of experience and played key roles in leading the federal government and the mortgage industry. They include Mark McArdle, assistant director of mortgage markets at the CFPB; Yvette Gilmore, vice president of servicing performance management at Freddie Mac; Mark Palim, deputy chief economist at Fannie Mae; and Ed Delgado, president & CEO of the Five Star Institute.
