According to Bloomberg, the Structured Finance Industry Group will hold a four-hour roundtable with about 35 executives in New York to reduce mistrust among secondary mortgage market participants.

The participants will attempt to answer a lingering question: When are lenders or sellers of mortgage securities on the line for loan repurchases when issues surface later on. Bloomberg reports:

The question is whether it’s enough. We don’t want a repeat of the housing crisis, where everyone got hurt.”
