Pipeline Modeling for Risk Managers
In last week’s FTN Financial Capital Assets Corporation’s (“Capital Assets’”) Comments, Jerry Hubbard reviewed MYRA — our Mortgage Yield Recovery Analysis.

It is imperative to have the best understanding of future profitability of your loan portfolio and lending strategy. Every depository that utilizes our modeling capabilities knows the benefit of incorporating our reports for balance sheet management. The same approach is necessary for pipeline management — hedging loans originated for immediate sale in the secondary market. You need to have a model!
