Southwest Corp. white paper makes a case for mortgages
PLANO, Texas (7/18/08)--Despite turmoil in the mortgage market caused by foreclosures on subprime real estate properties, mortgage lending still offers many opportunities for credit unions, according to a Southwest Corporate Investment Services white paper. “Making a Case for Mortgages” by Joe Arnold, senior advisor with Southwest Corporate’s advisory service, looks at the benefits of mortgage lending for credit unions in today’s turbulent marketplace (Southwest Corporate eFacts July 8). The paper refutes the notion that retaining mortgage originations--even in today’s environment--is too risky. “In addition to providing a service that your members need, mortgage lending continues to offer relative value,” Arnold said. The paper discusses:
* The outlook for mortgage originations this year; * The overall credit quality of credit union mortgage loans; * Credit unions’ current interest-rate risk position, and * Ways to mitigate risk.
“The bottom line is that credit quality of credit union mortgage loans remains high, interest rate risk is manageable, and current spreads make mortgage lending a valuable opportunity for credit unions,” Arnold said.
