in November than the previous month, according to a Reverse
Mortgage Daily report. The drop was due largely to a lack of seasoned pools.
Home Equity Conversion Mortgage-backed securities (HMBS) issuance totaled about $718 million in November, down from October’s total of $832 million. Production of original new loan pools, meanwhile, was $504 million – a slight increase from October.
During November, HMBS issuers created 53 original pools and 55 tail pools. Original pools are backed by the first participation in a previously uncertified MECM loan, according to Reverse Mortgage Daily. Tail issuances consist of subsequent participations.
Total outstanding HMBS rose to more than $55 billion, a $44 million increase from October.
