SCI In Conversation podcast
In the latest episode, Guy Carpenter's md, mortgage and structured credit segment leader Jeff Krohn talks about the recent shape of events in the GSE CRT sector, from the perspective of the capital markets and reinsurance market. He also touches on the topic of recent issuance - or the lack of it - from mortgage insurers and looks as well forward to the prospect of greater issuance in the CRT sector by US banks.

Calculated and rebalanced on a monthly basis by Mark Fontanilla & Co, the index provides market participants with a benchmark reference point for pricing in the private risk transfer market by aggregating issuer and investor views on pricing.
