Our team has worked diligently this summer to put together the biggest—and, dare I say, best—issue of TRR to date. This September edition features an unprecedented 52 pages, jam-packed with fresh information and insightful commentary on the state of the reverse mortgage industry.
We’re introducing some new sections too, including a roundup of stats and surveys affecting the market, and a page of the most recent news and initiatives from our friends at NRMLA. Also, don’t miss our Movers & Shakers page, where you can read about developments at various firms across the space. (If you have exciting company updates to share, send details our way for a chance to see your info in print.)
In this issue you’ll also find some great stories about the current HECM landscape. Check out our Spotlight section, where we take a close look at the CFPB’s Reverse Mortgage Report to Congress and discuss the industry’s reaction to the bureau’s findings. In our feature story, we
discuss the innovative HECM strategies proposed in recent economic research and talk to financial planners about their evolving opinions of the product.
And finally, this season has brought change my way on a personal level as well, as some of you may have noticed a new addition to my last name. I’m still getting used to a name no one can pronounce—it’s like Karen, but with a G!—though it’s a very welcome adjustment.
More changes are on the horizon at TRR, so
stay tuned for some announcements later this fall. In the meantime, enjoy this latest issue and, as always, feel free to comment online. We value feedback from our readers!
All the best,
Jessica Linn Guerin
