In his 19 years in the mortgage industry, Brian Devlin has become one of the most connected capital markets leaders — if a person in the mortgage industry is buying or selling a loan, Devlin knows them well. As managing director of capital markets at Finance of America Mortgage (FAM), Devlin’s relationships with Wall Street traders and national and community banks allow him to keep his finger on the pulse of our industry’s recent volatility. His knowledge, expertise and foresight keep FAM ahead of the curve. He keeps its employees informed with total transparency during weekly all-organization town hall meetings. A lot of what Devlin does is behind the scenes, however, as he’s a large part of the rudder that turns the ship.
Devlin has been responsible for changing FAM’s lending landscape and capabilities. He created strategic advantages that made FAM more flexible and able to operate independently by bringing all trading and hedging in-house. Devlin also established over 20 new trading counterparties for mortgage-backed securities and whole loans.
