10:00am - 10:50am (Coral Ballroom C): “Why non-QM should be part of your origination mix” sponsored by Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions

Times are different today and so is alternative lending. In this informative session from
Scott Gruebele, Account Executive and Stacy Flanigan, Account Executive with Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions, you’ll learn what alternative lending means now and why you shouldn’t ignore non-agency options. With the refi market drying up and overall originations expected to be lower this year, lenders are being forced to find new ways to produce volume. With growth potential of over $100 billion in annual originations, lenders who avoid the non-agency market do so at their own peril. By offering non-agency products, lenders can break into an untapped market, increase their reach and help millions of underserved American homebuyers find a mortgage that fits their needs – ultimately growing their business.
