Multifamily Credit Risk Transfer
The Multifamily team uses an industry-leading framework to manage credit risk over the full loan lifecycle, from underwriting to maturity/disposition:
We set prudent underwriting standards and regularly reevaluate them to address credit tolerance relative to current market conditions.
We review credit decisions to confirm that credit risk is appropriately managed during loan underwriting, then monitor performance throughout the loan term.
Our loss mitigation teams aim to identify risks early and develop strategies to minimize potential losses.
0.54% of our multifamily book of business was seriously delinquent as of Q3 2023.
