Jan. 17: CMB Tech Committee Webinar Series–Optimizing Warehouse Expense

In this webinar warehousing experts from the Certified Mortgage Banker’s Technology Committee will discuss warehousing opportunities and challenges IMBs face (relative to depositories) and share their experiences in optimizing warehouse expense for lenders.

Panelists will focus on access to short term liquidity in the form of warehouse lines of credit and how critical this is for IMB’s. The relationship between an IMB and its warehouse lenders is arguably the IMB’s most important business relationship which often ranks as a top 3 or 4 non-payroll expense on the P&L. Warehouse interest expense can chew up profits unless you optimize multiple factors in your selection of warehouse lender and negotiate terms. Join the CMB Technology Committee for in depth discussion on the IMB and warehouse lender relationship and much more.
