Philadelphia, PA – September 30, 2021 – Agile, a groundbreaking fintech bringing mortgage lenders and broker dealers on to a single electronic platform, today announced the launch of MBS pool bidding, enabling lenders and dealers to gain much-needed efficiencies and data through technology.
“Before this release, most clients conducted the spec pool bidding process via email and spreadsheets. Lenders send out pool details to their approved dealers and bids are sent back via email. This process is effective but not efficient,” comments Phil Rasori, COO at Agile. “We’re going to change that. Through Agile, lenders and dealers can exchange bids and conduct best execution analysis with access to robust loan-level data. And better data leads to sharper pricing.”
As securitization rates increase, an increasing number of lenders may be exploring specified pools for the first time. Agile is launching MBS pool bidding to help bring lenders and dealers together more seamlessly, offering both user-friendly technology and high-touch customer service.
Agile’s new MBS pool bidding offering includes:
Curtis Richins, President & CEO of Agile, notes, “We’ve been partnering closely with a number of clients on our new MBS pool bidding offering after listening to many of the current challenges they face in the current BWIC process. We’re excited to introduce MBS pool bidding to the marketplace because we believe the automation of this area of the industry was overdue. This is all part of our mission to revolutionize and digitize the mortgage capital markets.”
Agile will be debuting the MBS pool bidding functionality on an industry webinar planned for October 14, 2021: https://tradeagile.wpengine.com/webinar-introducing-agile-creating-a-better-mbs-market-for-all/
