GREENSBORO, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#loanoriginators–Arch Mortgage Insurance today announced the latest installment of the “Arch MI PolicyCast” video podcast series – an interview with Don Layton, former Freddie Mac CEO. In this episode, hosted by Kirk Willison, Arch MI’s Vice President of Government and Industry Relations, Layton discusses his experience leading Freddie Mac after the global financial crisis, the creation of Freddie Mac’s Credit Risk Transfer (CRT) program and his perspective on the FHFA’s proposed capital rule for the Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs).
