Introducing Agile: Creating a Better MBS Market for All​

October 14, 2021 at 10AM PT​

Join presenters Curtis Richins and Phil Rasori on October 14 at 10AM PT for a webinar introducing Agile to the marketplace, the company’s mission, and a demonstration of its To-Be-Announced (TBA) request for quote (RFQ) platform and MBS pool bidding functionalities.

In this webinar, attendees will be introduced to Agile, a new fintech bringing mortgage lenders and broker dealers on to a single electronic platform. This comes on the heels of Agile’s formal announcement last month on the launch of its flagship RFQ platform. Welcome to a world where all MBS market participants can now participate on an electronic platform that expedites the exchange of TBA MBS.
