OCC Chief Says Reviving Mortgage Securitization Is Recovery Key

“Underwriting standards will need to find a new equilibrium of risk and reward for a sustainable mortgage market,” Curry said in remarks prepared for an American Securitization Forum conference. “Getting the securitization pipeline flowing again is a critical component in turning this picture around.”
