In just a matter of days, origination of alternative loans, known as “non-QM lending,” came to an abrupt halt. Non-QM investors worry about risk in an economy shaken by COVID-19 and have stopped buying new loans.
Non-QM lenders now have loans sitting in their pipeline with no buyers. This creates a problem for lenders as most are not set up to own loans and are required to move the loans off their warehouse lines.
Joining the podcast to discuss buying and selling in the alternative loan market is Stephen Bone, Head of Whole Loan Trading at Banes Capital Group. Stephen’s desk trades non-governmental guaranteed residential and commercial whole loans.
