OAS Servicing Valuations

You cannot achieve best execution for your secondary market trades if you don’t take into account the value of the servicing asset. In some cases, it makes sense to retain these assets. In others, a better outcome can be achieved by selling them off. While very few of our clients come to us only to put a value on these assets, we have done that in the past.

It’s more common for us to provide our valuation expertise as part of a larger engagement. For instance, many of our clients execute trades but retain the servicing. While our primary business has long been providing best execution trades into the secondary market, it’s important for our clients who retain their servicing to know the value of these assets. As a result, we have built a successful business performing Option-Adjusting Pricing for Mortgage Servicing Rights.

This is an important part of the total sale optimization offering that MCM makes available because there are circumstances where it makes sense to sell off the servicing. To make that determination, we have developed an expertise at evaluating these assets.

Unlike most companies that evaluate these assets, we don’t rely on a cash flow model. We use the OAS valuation methodology. This takes into account many factors, including the type of loan, the loan amount, the intent, the purpose, the location, and other factors that can impact the value. We then test these values by performing what-if analysis, shocking interest rates up and down and using the client’s cost of funds and their return requirements as part of the valuation metric.

This method is much more accurate and can be customized to the specifics of the lender, which provides advantages that other methods do not. We don’t just answer the question, “What is the value of the servicing for this loan to the market?” We answer the question, “What is this loan’s servicing worth to you?”

We don’t go into the market in search of similar portfolios to give our clients an estimate of the value in their own portfolio. We actually do a loan level analysis of our clients’ portfolios.

This is a very complex analysis that requires us to know our client’s earnings goal, consider the spread between that amount and that the market is currently offering, factor in the yield curve and consider the duration of the assets. We evaluate every loan in the portfolio individually and then combine the results to value our client’s servicing portfolio.

Our clients have a much better idea of the value of their business and can make better decisions about the execution of future loan production. And when it comes to selling their existing servicing rights, they know exactly what these assets are worth to them, so they never have to settle for selling for less.

When it comes to hedging strategy, having this kind of valuation on their servicing is very valuable, especially in an environment where interest rates are rising and lenders need to hedge long term locks and float down locks.
