Conference Call: The Future of Housing Finance

Join American Banker's Rob Blackwell and Cowen’s Jaret Seiberg in a candid conversation about Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the future of housing finance

Join American Banker's Rob Blackwell and Cowen’s Jaret Seiberg in a candid conversation about Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the future of housing finance

Washington is dead set on revamping the housing finance system, whether by returning Fannie and Freddie to the private sector with a handful of changes or by making the more massive alterations now under discussion in Congress. What will either option (or others in the mix) mean for banks? Will large institutions end up dominating the sector, as some small banks fear? Or will the changes leave the big players in the cold? We break down what's coming, how the scenarios may play out and how all of it will impact your bottom line.
