Mortgage Credit

Our team helps you explore the opportunities within the credit risk transfer (CRT) market. As reinsurers seek to profitably grow, CRT represents one of the most compelling value propositions in today’s market. Partner with Guy Carpenter, an innovator in this space, to get out in front of the evolving opportunities.

Helping You Capitalize on the Opportunities

Introduced in 2013, the Government Sponsored Entity (GSE) Credit Risk Transfer (CRT) program has been a tremendous success. CRT has represented an entry point for many globally diversified reinsurers to participate in a new class of credit business with limited correlation to traditional property and casualty lines.

The program has grown rapidly since its inception with Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, the “GSEs,” transferring billions of dollars of risk to the capital and reinsurance markets every year, despite recent changes made to the Enterprise Capital Rule Framework under the prior Administration. Under the current Administration, CRT will likely evolve further.
