Busy is Good

So far in 2024, the needle hasn’t moved much regarding the velocity of origination volume. But while the pace and stability are producing an underwhelming rate of origination for most standard products, it is fueling a very good year for alternative loan products and private label securitizations. Non-QM, closed-end seconds, HELOCs and prime jumbo originations have all been gaining traction over the last six months, and securitizers are once again able to safely price new deals within acceptable ranges. In fact, KBRA expects the volume of private-label deals to double in 2024 vs. 2023. To handle the growing volume, our Clayton solution has recently increased staffing by 30%. And that’s the kind of good news that we like to share. Want to learn how Clayton can help elevate your business? Let’s connect at the upcoming MBA Secondary conference next month.
