Building a mortgage aggregation business with Jennifer McGuinness
On today’s episode, HW Media CEO Clayton Collins had the opportunity to interview a really phenomenal leader in the housing finance sector, Jennifer McGuinness. She is currently the CEO of Pivot Financial, previously president of Invigorate Finance, and her 25-year career spans from origination to tech to asset management. Jennifer built the first hedge fund issuer of AAA-rated RMBS securities collateralized by a newly originated loan. She was also a HousingWire Woman of Influence in 2023 and a HousingWire Vanguard back in 2019.
In this episode, Jennifer shares some of her expertise about the jumbo prime securitization market and the crazy experience she had back in 2014 heading the deal team responsible for becoming the first hedge fund issuer of AAA-rated RMBS securities. They also talk about careful economic decision-making that’s done with imperfect information, what she’s seeing in this rate environment and recent mortgage consolidation trends.
