HFI InDepth – The ABCs of Managing MBS Cash Flow for Fannie Mae
What will I learn?
In this course, you will learn about MBS loans, where Fannie Mae issues mortgage backed securities in exchange for pools of loans. This MBS basics course includes concepts on pool reporting and how to perform a pool-to-security reconciliation. In addition, you will learn how to determine the amount and timing of remittances due Fannie Mae, recognize the effect that collection activity other than current payments has on your remittances, track and analyze custodial account activity, and reconcile MBS cashbooks. This course does not cover scheduled/scheduled loan-level reporting and reconciliation (Schedules 1a and 2).
Do I have the right experience and background?
This course is designed for beginner to intermediate-level investor accounting staff who handle pool accounting for MBS loans and are responsible for custodial accounting functions that include pool reconciliation, maintaining cashbooks, and reconciliation of those cashbooks to the depository statement via Form 496.
