Have the Fed Financing Bank fund the agencies with fixed rate amortizing term funding.
Have the FFB eat the convexity and allow prepayments of advances at par as mtgs pay down.
Have Congress set the FFB’s advance rate for the mtgs for public purpose.
Have fed member banks originate agency mtgs on
Congressionally dictated terms as agents for the agencies on a fee basis.
Have the agencies hold all these newly issues loans in portfolio.
Have the banks do the servicing for a fee.
This would lower mtg rates maybe 1%.
Have the agencies offer refi’s for existing agency loans at current rates without new appraisals or income statements.
Am i missing anything?
Feel free to distribute!
