This podcast is part two of a three-part series between Summit and Milliman about mortgage finance. Check out other parts here.
In part one of the podcast series, Ken Bjurstrom of Milliman and Josh Goldberg of Summit discussed what it means to serve federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. In this second part of the conversation, Bjurstrom and Goldberg unpack some of the more technical aspects of risk management within a federal government context.
Both Summit and Milliman support their clients’ mission-oriented goals, like the statistical analysis of equity. Goldberg and Bjurstrom also model mortgages, and such models are used in the monitoring of the capital ratio for the Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund, budge appropriations for loan programs, and the loan loss guarantee in the Federal Housing Administration’s financial statements. (For more information on the Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund, see this article by the Congressional Budget Office.)
