Following the mortgage market meltdown of 2008, a whole new group of investment companies arose from the wreckage of investment banks. I was among the few people at the time running into the fire and actively investing with these startup mortgage investment firms. Amongst those building new mortgage investment businesses was a particularly bright, energetic guy named Skylar Weinand from Texas. Skylar had previously spent time at various investment firms managing large pools of mortgage-backed securities and he saw an opportunity to blaze his own path, trading in the open white space of a brand new mortgage market. Fast forward 15 years and Skylar’s firm, Regan Capital is still innovating, adding mutual funds and ETFs to their long standing hedge fund and private capital businesses. While Skylar is a fantastic trader, he’s a particularly insightful thinker. In today’s podcast, we discuss the impact of high interest rates on the US housing market. To know mortgages, you really need to understand housing. We talk about supply / demand dynamics for both mortgages and housing – and, ultimately, why this moment in time presents a particularly interesting opportunity.
