New Book Helps Mortgage Lenders Looking to Increase Profits with Mandatory Execution

As mortgage lenders face increasing pressure on profits, more lenders are considering a transition to mandatory execution. However, lenders have few resources for learning about the ins-and-outs and the daily routine of managing a hedging program. The book, Demystifying Mandatory, offers lenders an independent resource to learn about mandatory execution before they jump in.

New orleans, LA, March 25, 2012 --( Jennifer Fortier, CMB announced the release of a new book, titled Demystifying Mandatory – The Beginner’s to Implementing and Managing a Hedging Program for Residential Mortgages to help mortgage lenders who are considering mandatory execution as a way to increase profits in these challenging times.

This book is the first resource for mortgage lenders to independently learn about what it’s like to manage mandatory execution and a hedging program. In this guide, a seasoned secondary marketing manager shares insight, experiences, and knowledge about how a hedging program works, what it takes to get it going, and what it’s like to manage it. It presents a safe, conservative, and predictable approach to hedging that is accepted by the industry as the best tactic for small- to mid-size lenders.

Ms. Fortier said “Most lenders who consider mandatory execution don’t really have an opportunity to truly understand the daily process until they’ve already implemented a hedging program. They have to learn as they go. My goal in creating this resource is to help lenders get comfortable before they move forward and provide continuing guidance as they implement a program.
