Baby Steps: An Update on Housing Finance Reform

The U.S. housing market is a critical piece of the general economy. It represents one-fifth of U.S. GDP and 35% of all private, non-financial debt in the country. The U.S. Treasury Department just announced that Fannie and Freddie will retain their earnings, a step in moving the companies out of conservatorship and back into the private sector.In this podcast, SIFMA president and CEO, Kenneth E. Bentsen, Jr. is joined by Chris Killian - Managing Director and head of SIFMA's securitization practice. Together, they explain how that one small move fits into the Administration's overall goals for housing finance reform. Learn more about this issue at www.sifma.org.

Baby Steps: An Update on Housing Finance Reform

Podcast: Where Money Market Funds And The Repo Market Intersect (09 - 23 - 2019)

Money market funds are investment vehicles that invest in debt securities with short maturities and minimal credit risk. They are a significant source of cash for the repo markets, where a money market fund or other asset manager lends cash to a broker-dealer or hedge fund in exchange for securities, often Treasury notes. Last week, a confluence of events negatively affected liquidity in the repo markets; a change in the availability of cash to lend caused market rates to nearly double and significant funds to be withdrawn from money market funds. A series of operations by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York injected liquidity into the system and stabilized markets. In this supplement to our recent podcast, What Just Happened in the Repo Markets?, SIFMA president and CEO, Kenneth E. Bentsen, Jr. walks through the basics of money market fund operations and explains how they relate to the recent dislocation in repo markets. He is joined by Timothy C. Cameron - Managing Director and Associate General Counsel and head of SIFMA's Asset Management Group (SIFMA AMG) - and Robert Toomey - Managing Director and Associate General Counsel and head of SIFMA's capital markets practice.

Podcast: Where Money Market Funds And The Repo Market Intersect (09 - 23 - 2019)

What Just Happened In The Repo Markets?

The financial system relies on short-term money markets every day to fund operations. A crucial but sleepy market that ordinarily hums steadily along, this week we saw a shortage of cash cause a massive spike in repo rates. What happened? In this podcast, SIFMA president and CEO, Kenneth E. Bentsen, Jr. discusses the confluence of technical factors that caused the market dislocation - and what policymakers can take away from it. He is joined by Robert Toomey - Managing Director and Associate General Counsel and head of SIFMA's capital markets practice - and Carter McDowell - Managing Director and Associate General Counsel and head of SIFMA's prudential and capital practice.

What Just Happened In The Repo Markets?

Podcast: Are CCAR Shocks to the Trading Book Plausible?

A decade ago, the Federal Reserve implemented the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) process as part of its stress testing framework to assess and regulate capital sufficiency at large bank holding companies. A new study released by SIFMA uses statistical analysis of stress testing scenarios to answer a simple question: does the available evidence indicate that the current Global Market Shock (GMS) and Large Counterparty Default (LCD) shocks from recent CCAR cycles are plausible? In this podcast, SIFMA president and CEO, Kenneth E. Bentsen, Jr. discusses the study's analysis and findings with Joseph Seidel, SIFMA’s Chief Operating Officer; Carter McDowell, SIFMA’s Associate General Counsel and Managing Director; and Coryann Stefansson, Senior Advisor to SIFMA.

Mid-Year 2019 Economic Survey

SIFMA's survey of chief U.S. economists forecasts that the U.S. economy will grow 2.2% in 2019, a decrease from its end-year predictions. U.S. trade policy and China’s deteriorating economic conditions were among the most important considerations in the forecast change. Ellen Zentner, Managing Director and Chief U.S. Economist for Morgan Stanley and Chair of SIFMA's Economic Advisory Roundtable discusses the results from our latest survey.

Mid-Year 2019 Economic Survey

Prudential Regulation and Its Effect on the Capital Markets

With the adoption of complex, conservative, prudential regulatory requirements, banks are now subject to multiple risk-based capital ratios, leverage ratios, capital buffers and Total Loss-Absorbing Capital (TLAC) ratios. As a result, they hold excessive levels of capital and liquidity that are increasingly disconnected from the level of risk they incur. Although these levels have undoubtedly increased resiliency, they come at a cost: the more capital required, the less deployed into the economy. Here, Joseph Seidel, SIFMA’s Chief Operating Officer, and Carter McDowell, SIFMA’s Associate General Counsel and Managing Director, talk through the state of the post-crisis prudential regulatory framework and its effects on the capital markets, including market liquidity, capital formation and innovation.
