Our partnerships with the Rating Agencies:
Clayton’s in-depth dialog with the rating agencies began in 2008 as we worked with representatives from the major rating agencies on the SIFMA Due Diligence and Reporting Standardization Working Group.  Subsequently, we’ve established a transactional relationship with all the rating agencies including S&P, Fitch, Moody’s, DBRS and Kroll as they became active in rating newly issued RMBS where Clayton supplied independent due diligence results.  

Notably, our collaboration spans many recently issued RMBS deals and Clayton has had extensive interaction with several of the rating agencies around review sampling, process, scope, materiality, loan grading and reporting.  For the RMBS deals Clayton has recently been involved with, the rating agencies have found Clayton's work to meet their pre-securitization requirements.  We are an approved S&P and DBRS RMBS third-party review (TPR) provider and meet the standards of Moody's, Fitch Ratings and Kroll Bond Ratings for pre-securitization due diligence.

Clayton is actively involved with the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) with representation on several key committees (Capital Markets, Secondary Markets, QM, RESPA/TILA, Loan Servicing and Reverse Mortgage) and in several MBA working groups on proposed Dodd-Frank regulations.  Clayton has participated in most of the relevant MBA conferences since its inception, and is invited to present at virtually all of them.  The MBA also reaches out to Clayton for suggestion on conference topics as they develop their agendas.  

Clayton is also a member of the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association (NRMLA)  NRMLA is the national voice of the reverse mortgage industry, serving as an educational resource, policy advocate and public affairs center for lenders and related professionals.  Clayton's senior consultants have presented guidance materials, presentations on reverse mortgages, a guide to underwriting and best-in-class services and have actively participated in their annual meeting conferences since 2005.

Clayton is a founding member of the Structured Finance Industry Group (SFIG)  To address the challenges our industry faces currently with ever-changing regulatory rules, regulations (Dodd-Frank, QM/QRM) and rating agency requirements (Disclosure/Transparency), that will identify the impact of these changes to future securitizations, identify third-party review due diligence best practices, and help determine what it will take to rebuild the operational infrastructure that will be needed to restore market confidence and support the industry for sustainable growth.
