BlockFi obtains a $250 million line of credit from FTX https://gosic.org/blockfi-obtains-a-250-million-line-of-credit-from-ftx/ Tue, 21 Jun 2022 13:38:07 +0000 https://gosic.org/blockfi-obtains-a-250-million-line-of-credit-from-ftx/

Crypto lender BlockFi secured $250 million revolving line of credit from crypto exchange FTXCEO Zac Prince announced on Twitter on Tuesday morning.

“Today @BlockFi signed a term sheet with @FTX_Official to secure a $250m revolving credit facility giving us access to capital which further strengthens our balance sheet and the strength of our platform,” said he writes in a Twitter feed.

Prince said FTX loan proceeds are contractually subordinate to all customer balances, which means BlockFi will fulfill its obligations on customer accounts — BlockFi interest accounts, BlockFi personalized return, and loan collateral — before paying FTX. .

The company was particularly affected by the crisis. Last week, BlockFi joined the growing list of companies cutting staff to weather the crypto winter, cutting its staff by “around 20 %.”

At the time, Prince said on Twitter that all BlockFi products and services would continue to operate as normal.

This is a timely disclaimer.

Celsius, one of BlockFi’s crypto lending competitors, froze account withdrawals, trades and transfers last Sunday to help it cope with the weather.”extreme market conditions.” Yesterday society said so needs more time to stabilize before unblocking the accounts.

Meanwhile, BlockFi has encountered its own headwinds. Last week, the company made a $1 million payment to Iowa Division of Insurance as part of a larger $100 million fine that BlockFi agreed to pay to settle an investigation into its high-yield accounts.

“Future Collaboration”

In his announcement of the line of credit, Prince hinted that this could open the door for a partnership between FTX and BlockFi.

“This deal also unlocks future collaboration and innovation between BlockFi and FTX as we work to accelerate prosperity around the world through crypto financial services,” he said on Twitter.

The feeling seems mutual. Yesterday, FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried said the cryptocurrency exchange had a “responsibility” to bail out struggling companies during this relentless bear market.

“Even though we weren’t the ones who caused it, or weren’t involved in it,” he said, referring to the wave of “contagion” affecting the crypto markets. “I think that’s what’s healthy for the ecosystem, and I want to do what can help it grow and thrive.”

7 On Your Side: The Best Money Moves to Deal With Rising Mortgage Rates https://gosic.org/7-on-your-side-the-best-money-moves-to-deal-with-rising-mortgage-rates/ Fri, 17 Jun 2022 22:52:11 +0000 https://gosic.org/7-on-your-side-the-best-money-moves-to-deal-with-rising-mortgage-rates/ This week, 30-year fixed mortgage rates rose more than half a point to 5.78%, the biggest increase in 28 years.

So what does it mean if you’re selling or buying a home?

“We fell in love with the place, we fell in love with the house,” Mohamad Hussein said. “We got it, we felt lucky.”

Breathing a sigh of relief, the first home buyer closed his Cliffside Park property last March.

Hussein said if he applied today, his 2.5% interest rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage would be 6.5%.

Her family wouldn’t have been able to afford their dream home now.

For example, take a $500,000 mortgage.

A four-point increase in the interest rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage would cost the homeowner an additional $1,185 per month in interest.

That’s $14,220 per year and an additional $426,600 in interest over the life of the loan.

“Our first time buyers are going to be taken off the market,” Robert White said.

White, president of New Jersey Realtors, said buyers with low margins on what they’ve saved and who can afford to pay monthly will choose to keep renting and wait as mortgage rates are expected to keep rising. .

“You might see somewhere between 7.5 and 8%, but that fights inflation and then rates will come back down,” White said.

His advice to potential buyers is to lock in a lower rate from time to time and then refinance.

“They may be paying a higher rate now, but they can refinance those loans at a later date at a lower interest rate,” White said.

White said don’t listen to advice like buying your rate with points doesn’t pay off in the long run, or using a shorter loan term.

“It’s going to cost the buyer 60% more on the monthly payment,” White said.

He also advises avoiding ARMs, adjustable rate mortgages, with attractive, low introductory rates.

“Here’s what could happen, you lock yourself into a 3-5 year ARM and let’s say rates have gone up. Well now you can’t refi because you’re already locked into that rate and it’s going to go up at the rate. expiration of this RMA,” White said.

What buyers can do in this market is try to put down a bigger deposit. This will present you as a stronger buyer and help you with the amount of equity you put into the home.

“You’re not going to see meaningful interest rates unless you set 4% or higher,” White said.

Another trick is to reduce the size of your wishlist.

Consider a condo or townhouse instead of house for now or broaden your search to more remote areas and use a direct lender, a reputable bank with guaranteed rates.

“The product they are promoting will definitely stay the same from start to finish,” White said.

And finally, lenders want your business, so put them in competition. Shop around and consider working with a licensed mortgage broker, they can help you through uncertain times.

UK regulator puts Credit Suisse on watch list after scandals https://gosic.org/uk-regulator-puts-credit-suisse-on-watch-list-after-scandals/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 20:00:12 +0000 https://gosic.org/uk-regulator-puts-credit-suisse-on-watch-list-after-scandals/

Britain’s financial regulator has placed Credit Suisse on its watch list of institutions needing stricter oversight, the latest blow to a bank struggling to draw a line under a series of crises.

The Financial Conduct Authority told Credit Suisse last month it was taking the action because it was concerned the bank had not done enough to improve its culture, governance and risk controls.

In a letter sent in mid-May and seen by the Financial Times, regulators asked the bank’s senior management to provide evidence of steps it would take to prevent misconduct and improve accountability.

Officials also urged the bank to address “persistent” cultural issues, including a lack of internal challenges to risky transactions, and said they had yet to see “sufficient evidence of effective remediation”.

Being added to the watchlist signals that the FCA has serious concerns, according to a person familiar with how the list works. Only about 20 institutions are on the list at any given time out of the approximately 60,000 regulated by the FCA, the person added.

Groups on the list are closely monitored by high-level officials in the regulator, required to show progress and address the root causes of issues of concern.

Among the companies that were on the list are Lendy, the now-defunct UK peer-to-peer lender, and Provident Financial, the subprime lender that has been investigated by the regulator over its loan valuation.

Scandal after scandal at Credit Suisse over the past 24 months has exposed weak risk controls, forced the bank to issue a series of earnings warnings and sent its stock price plummeting.

Among the most high-profile is the implosion of Greensill Capital in March 2021, which forced the bank to close $10 billion in funds linked to the supply chain group. Weeks later, Credit Suisse suffered a $5.5 billion business loss – the largest in its 166-year history – following the collapse of the Archegos family office.

Last October, the bank agreed to pay a £147million FCA fine as part of a settlement package with four regulators in three countries for its role in the long-running ‘tuna bonds’ scandal. Mozambique.

The FCA has put the bank’s international division and UK operations on the watchlist because it regulates them.

In the May letter, the watchdog asked the bank to take a number of steps, including conducting a second-half review of the effectiveness of the board, risk and audit committees. of Credit Suisse International.

The FCA said it made the requests for review after consulting Finma, the Swiss regulator. Finma declined to comment.

The FCA is also concerned about whether the bank has properly reported breaches of conduct for a number of years, the letter said, which also noted a lack of curiosity on the part of the bank about the root causes. of its shortcomings.

In late April, Credit Suisse announced that David Mathers, the bank’s chief financial officer and managing director of Credit Suisse International, a position he has held since 2016, would step down from both roles once a successor has been found.

Several people with direct knowledge of the internal discussions said Mathers had been in talks with the group’s chief executive, Thomas Gottstein, about his departure for at least two years and that it was not related to any regulatory issues.

In a statement to the Financial Times, Credit Suisse said: “We do not comment on our discussions with regulators, and it would not be appropriate for us to do so. As we summarized earlier, we are now well advanced in executing the plan to strengthen our business and our risk culture. »

The FCA declined to comment.

Wyndham Capital Mortgage to have another round of layoffs https://gosic.org/wyndham-capital-mortgage-to-have-another-round-of-layoffs/ Fri, 10 Jun 2022 21:21:03 +0000 https://gosic.org/wyndham-capital-mortgage-to-have-another-round-of-layoffs/

Direct-to-consumer lender Wyndham Capital Mortgage is carrying out a new round of layoffs, according to a Worker Accommodation and Retraining Notice (WARNING) notice filed with the North Carolina Department of Commerce.

The company announced that it would lay off 48 employees effective August 1. Staff work either at the lender’s headquarters in Charlotte, NC or remotely and report to the location.

“Of those impacted employees, 38 work off-premises or hybrid (office and remote) in North Carolina and South Carolina, and 10 are fully remote employees living in other states outside of the Carolinas,” Angela Fumo, senior vice president of capital human resources, wrote in the WARN notification reviewed by HousingWire.

Founded in 2001 by Jeff Douglas, Wyndham has positioned itself as a fintech-focused mortgage lender with a proprietary software system that allows the company to close loans 20% faster than the national average.

The lender provides loans in 47 states and Washington, D.C., both conventional and ginnie mae-guaranteed loans. The company claims to have 350 employees and to have served 100,000 borrowers.

Last year, taking advantage of falling mortgage rates and a refi boom, Wyndham actively expanded, opening two hubs in Dallas and Phoenix, bringing its office count to five. The company also has launched a retail division in July 2021 and hired former Town executive Karen Mayfield in August to lead the national effort.

However, like other lenders with direct-to-consumer models, the company tends to be refi-heavy and relies on call centers for hospitality, struggling to find its place in a buying market so as rates rise and spreads begin to compress.

In January, Wyndham experienced a series of layoffs when pink slips arrived for 35 loan officers at its offices in Dallas, Charlotte, Salt Lake City, Kansas City and Phoenix.

Like Wyndham, other lenders cut jobs in the second half of 2021 and the first quarter of 2022 in view of rising mortgage rates and reduced refinancing volume. Purchase mortgage rates hit 5.23% this week – and some of those same lenders are making further cuts. As the market contracts, originators Interfirst Mortgage Co. and better.com are implementing their second and third rounds of layoffs, respectively.

These companies are part of a wider list of companies reducing their workforce, including Wells Fargo, Pennymac, Mr. Cooper, loanDeposit, Guaranteed rate, Fairway Independent mortgageand Motion mortgage.
