Leveraging Technology for a Better Pricing Experience in Mortgage Pipeline Hedging


Tuesday, July 27, 2021

10:30 a.m. – 11.30 a.m. CDT


Now more than ever it’s important to have clear, transparent pricing to implement and execute an effective mortgage hedging program. ALM First and Polly have teamed up to provide a simple, effective solution to pricing mortgages, providing transparency for issuers and potential buyers. We will explore how technology has helped improve the process for mortgage issuers as well as participants in the secondary market. Finally, we will show how improved pricing can help with mortgage pipeline hedging, helping institutions mitigate interest rate and investment risk to improve their balance sheets.


Learning Objectives:

  • Identify challenges with pricing mortgages, both whole loans and participations
  • Show how evolving pricing engine technology can allow for greater control and efficiency amidst market volatility
  • Highlight how consumers can easily deploy scenario tools to any website via APIs
  • Describe how improved pricing transparency can benefit a mortgage pipeline hedging program
  • Discover how better pricing data can give lenders more confidence and improve execution
  • Demonstrate how mortgage pipeline hedging can mitigate risk and enhance income, potentially improving an institution’s balance sheet.
