Dislocation in the credit markets is reshaping the competitive landscape for many financial institutions. With precipitous drops in home prices, a collapse in liquidity and increased regulatory scrutiny, the heat from the mortgage market meltdown is being felt far and wide.

Executives are challenged by the collapse of secondary markets, decline in origination volumes, high delinquencies and reduced property values. Banks are seeking a profitable business model in this volatile environment. Clearly, the playbook is changing rapidly. The strains are forcing banks to find new strategies to mitigate losses and protect assets. To survive the current climate and align themselves for future success, lenders need to overhaul products, operations, systems and controls.

Transformation to improve execution

Market pressures are forcing lenders to take actions, which include:
  • Overhauling operations and infrastructure
  • Streamlining and reconfiguring core systems to support new market requirements
  • Deploying creative foreclosure prevention and Real Estate Owned (REO) strategies
  • Improving process and decision-making transparency
  • Linking legal and regulatory requirements with operational controls to ensure compliance
  • Enhancing risk reporting, stress testing, loss forecasting and assessment of capital adequacy
