First it was the Mortgage Bankers Associations incoming president who declared that going global would be one of his groups priorities for 1995 (see Mortgage Marketplace, Oct. 17). Now its the Public Securities Association that is looking forward to looking abroad.
The PSA said it recently conducted a roundtable meeting of federal officials, operations experts, traders and market-ers that concluded international hous-ing was a business that was destined to growand that was certain to lead to more securitization and more invest- ments, in the United States and overseas.
One yardstick of that growing in-terest was the fact that three dozen people from 20 non-U.S. companies attended the MBA convention in Boston earlier this month. An MBA spokes-woman said the attendees came from South Korea, Australia, Russia, Mexico and Canada.
The MBA also plans to conduct a conference in September 1995 in Mexico City.
