From lenders to dealers of all sizes, Agile is the new way to quote MBS via a single electronic platform. Agile’s three-step process for digital TBA trading communication can help lenders improve efficiency, while expanding the number of quotes they receive and their network of counterparts. Their game-changing technology supports both TBA trading and MBS pooling. Conducting phone-based trades in the MBS marketplace limits competition, which is why Agile supports bidding with up to eight dealers.
Agile has built a robust community with 17 broker-dealers, 290 unique lenders actively trading and 15.1k average monthly transactions.
Users experienced an average improvement of 1.6 basis points on their TBA trades after implementation. Agile’s initial roll-out began on January 1, 2021, and demonstrated rapid adoption across the mortgage secondary market. In 2022, the platform supported 290 unique clients who have requested 180,720 separate trade requests. Agile has grown exponentially year over year, even amidst overall mortgage lock volume decreasing.
