On August 28, the FDIC, Fed, FHFA, OCC, SEC and HUD issued a notice of revised proposed rulemaking relating to required risk retention by sponsors in securitization transactions. The proposed rule would define “qualified residential mortgage” (QRM) in the same way that the CFPB has defined qualified mortgages (QMs) and would exempt securitizations of QRMs from the risk retention requirements. Comments on the revised proposed rule must be submitted by October 30. Joint Release. Proposed Rule.
