The Third International Conference on Housing Risk is less than two weeks away. If you haven’t already registered, please use this link to Register. There is no charge for this event.

As part of the presentation entitled The devolution of appraisal and underwriting theory and practice, I will be reporting on the Center’s ground-breaking research tracking individual house price volatility, loan product choice, and the impact on wealth building .

What: Third International Conference on Housing Risk: New Risk Measures and their Applications, cosponsored by the Collateral Risk Network and AEI International Center on Housing Risk

When: Wednesday, September 17, 2014 | 8:15 a.m. – Thursday, September 18, 2014 | 1:30 p.m.

Where: AEI, Twelfth Floor , 1150 Seventeenth Street, NW, Washington, DC 20036

How: Use this link to Register. There is no charge for this event.

Hotels: There are no specific conference hotels. There are many hotels in a wide price range near the conference location.

About: At the core of the US financial collapse was the lack of an objective standard of safety and soundness in mortgage underwriting and collateral risk assessment. Opaque information regarding these risks meant that homebuyers, lenders, investors, insurers, regulators, and policymakers had neither incentives nor information to moderate the bubble.

We invite you to join us for this year’s international conference on housing risk — cosponsored by the Collateral Risk Network and AEI International Center on Housing Risk — which will focus on new mortgage and collateral risk measures and their applications. Experts from the US, Europe, and Canada will address efforts and proposals to objectively measure housing risk.

More than 150 people attended last year’s conference. At this year’s conference, you will hear from six panels of experts from academia, the appraisal industry, the financial community, and regulatory bodies.

If you are unable to attend, we welcome you to watch the event live via the link HERE. Full video will be posted within 24 hours.
