Time for Innovative Profit-Making 

The residential mortgage-backed securities market has shifted from uncertainty to a relatively settled “new normal” in just a few months. Happily most of the business verities still apply—some more now than ever. But many underlying market assumptions and the actions based on them are no longer relevant, representing new challenges.

The 2015 CoreLogic New York Symposium will explore these challenges—and more--- and show how some apparent profitability killers can be mined for new opportunities—providing you a wealth of timely, critical business insights at no cost and little investment of time.

Should You Go to the 2015 Symposium?

Whether you’re in mortgage origination, servicing, securities, research, or regulatory, this year’s Symposium can help you discover real, innovative profitability in a brave new marketplace.
