“The expanded prime market has taken a beating during this current pandemic,” said Bryan Filkey, EVP of Credit and Strategic Initiatives at PCMA. “As lending standards begin to open up again, it is our job to show that expanded prime borrowers are some of the most credit worthy and will only help expedite our economic comeback.”

Brian Filkey EVP of Credit and Strategic Initiatives at PCMA is covering Minimizing Underwriting & Financial Risk For Non-QM Loans alongside fellow industry expert panelists: Kenon Chen, Executive VP of Corporate Strategy Clear Capital; David Grider, VP of Northwest Sales HomeXpress.

“The vast majority of loans are backed by tax-payers and the risk of these loans (one could argue) are greater than the expanded prime loans that have been unfairly labelled Non-QM,” said Filkey. “Non-QM loans above 43 DTI are performing significantly better than GSE loans, yet they are held to a stricter standard due to poor legislation and a bias based on a category name, not based on the very credit worthy client.”
