The Week Ahead: Regulators and the Industry Unite to Face Challenges

This coming Wednesday, June 9, The Five Star Institute presents its 2021 Government Forum: A Virtual Event.

Officials making critical decisions on the direction of the housing economy are working together with the mortgage industry to ensure that sensible regulations are in place to protect the industry and the customers that it serves. With representation from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Ginnie Mae, and others, the 2021 Five Star Government Forum is a landmark event where leaders in mortgage servicing and the federal government will engage in open dialogue about the industry’s most pressing issues.

The event kicks off at 10:00 a.m. CDT, as Five Star Global Chairman Ed Delgado will lead a side-by-side discussion with featured guest speaker, Rep. Steve Bartlett, former President and CEO of the Financial Services Roundtable.

A full day’s agenda will encompass a number of topics, including:

  • A panel discussion examining the new leadership at HUD, the CFPB, and the FHFA.
  • A special presentation from the Veterans Financial Services Council, Operation Homefront, and Auction.com commemorating the sacrifices of our veterans and Five Star Government Forum’s commitment to making homeownership accessible to this group.
  • A panel discussion on the CARES Act and its impact on the servicing industry.
  • A session covering the future of the GSEs and their exit from conservatorship.
  • Fannie Mae SVP and Chief Economist Doug Duncan offering his views on housing finance, the mortgage industry, and the broader U.S. economy.
  • Closing remarks and key takeaways from leaders in the servicing and government sectors summarizing ways the mortgage process can be strengthened moving forward.
