OUR MISSION Our core values are transparency, integrity and independence. Our mission is to instill confidence in the housing market by creating an environment that promotes safe and sound collateral risk practices, policies and procedures under all economic conditions through education and collaboration. A vibrant housing finance system is at its best when it works for all stakeholders. Slide

WHO WE ARE

Our primary mission is to advance the use of sound collateral risk management principles, policies and practices within the housing finance industry. CRN promotes a broad multi-stakeholder approach to risk management that focuses on valuation, collateral risk, and regulations.

The Collateral Risk Network is representative of all collateral risk stakeholders including- lenders, investors, rating agencies, private mortgage insurers, appraisers, Appraisal Management Companies (AMCs), technology providers, data providers and regulators.

Collateral Risk entails a focus on four primary “buckets”:

  1. Property Risk      2. Market Risk     3. Exogenous Risk     4. Operational Risk

Through our quarterly meetings and private email network the “thought leaders” within the collateral risk community act as counsel to each other, share experiences, and assist each other in solving mutual problems. Safety and soundness are of utmost importance.

We invite notable experts to speak to each of these risk factors at our educational quarterly meetings.
