Investors Unite Executive Director Tim Pagliara Commends FHFA Director Mel Watt for Comments on GSE Capital Buffers

WASHINGTON – Today, in response to FHFA Director Mel Watt’s remarks on the risks posed to the housing market by the GSEs’ ongoing conservatorship, Investors Unite Executive Director Tim Pagliara had this to say:

“I commend Mel Watt for his forthright comments on the risks posed to the stability of America’s housing market by the never-ending GSE conservatorship. As Director Watt noted, the GSEs’ woefully inadequate capital reserves pose a grave threat to the housing finance system and all American taxpayers. FHFA should use the statutory authority granted to it by HERA to advocate for the end of the Net Worth Sweep.”
