The mortgage sector has been gradually embracing technology to streamline the end-to-end process of getting a mortgage, to render smoother customer experiences.

With an industry-wide call for action to build long-term efficiencies and the consequent emergence of innovative mortgage-product offerings and technology solutions, the market is ripe for disruption. 

This year’s event will bring in market leaders, government agency leaders, and industry experts for four days of interaction, learning, nurturing relationships, and deal-making. 

We at Vaultedge, have created a list of sessions that we think shouldn’t be missed.

General Session: Housing's Leading Voices

Integral to the housing finance system, the policies of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), Federal Housing Administration (FHA), and Ginnie Mae are pivotal for our industry. MBA is pleased to welcome key leaders from each to the Main Stage to discuss their agencies’ upcoming priorities.

General Session: Navigating Economic Uncertainty

The panel includes Roger Ferguson who is an economist, corporate executive, and highly regarded expert on financial issues. As President and CEO of TIAA, he led the company and its 17,000 employees through the challenges of the pandemic and social unrest. He provides his insight on the economy and leading in uncertain times, identifying three crises we have seen – health, social justice, and economics – and how they intertwine. He lays out three crucial steps for an actionable way forward: recognizing lessons learned, identifying how your company can be part of the solution in the short- and long-term, and use of government resources. 

INDUSTRY TECH TRACK: Tech Showcase for Top Decision Makers

In this power hour, get exposure to trending tech solutions through five rapid-fire product demos designed to help decision-makers clarify the rapidly changing tech ecosystem. The session will help you to maximize your time and visit afterward with providers in the HUB for more details.

INDUSTRY TECH TRACK: The ROI on Technology Investment

Tech investment by mortgage companies has been significant in recent years, yet a common topic of conversation is “what are we getting for the money?” Industry leaders seek answers by evaluating customer satisfaction, cost savings, and improved efficiency. The experts in this session discuss whether we are fully utilizing the technology we develop or purchase.

POLICY PRIORITIES TRACK: Opportunities in Fair Lending and CRA Lending

When focused on the Fair Lending and CRA programs, lenders often find new opportunities to reach underserved markets and expand access to credit. The session explores implementing strong fair lending and community development programs at your company, including the use of Special Purpose Credit Programs designed to provide direct financial assistance to groups historically locked out of homeownership.

POLICY PRIORITIES TRACK: Raising Your Shield for Data Privacy & Security

Security threats and privacy concerns are ever-changing, as are the legislative and regulatory requirements lenders must follow. Attend for a recap of today’s threats and requirements, and how to effectively and efficiently address them.

POLICY PRIORITIES TRACK: Servicing after the Pandemic

Mortgage defaults are at all-time lows, but economists are projecting an impending recession and market rates are now above 5%, suggesting challenges ahead. An expert panel analyzes the lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic experience and how the industry will continue to deliver loss mitigation solutions to struggling borrowers. Topics include potential programmatic changes, efforts to maintain default scalability, liquidity risk/MSR values in a higher rate environment, and the regulatory landscape.

MARKET OPPORTUNITIES TRACK: Expanding Business and Closing the Gap

Doing good and doing well go hand in hand when industry professionals and community partners collaborate. This session illustrates how a collective impact approach produces solutions to increase minority homeownership, close the racial wealth gap, and expand the business into growing markets.

MARKET OPPORTUNITIES TRACK: Perspectives on the Return-to-Office

Top of mind for most executives and managers today is the question of how and why we “office” and the impact on culture, collaboration, teamwork, and professional development. Attendees will gain insight into the variables including efficiency, office demand, space use, employer and employee cost/benefit analysis, and legal perspectives.

THE INNOVATION HUB:

MBA assemblages have been giving industry innovators a platform to showcase their latest products or talk about their new services. The MBA Annual 2022 is no different. At the Innovation Hub,  one can witness leading companies, and industry leaders showcasing their state-of-the-art products and latest innovations.
