Subprime Mortgage Consulting
Assessing the risks facing investors and institutions.
The Ripple Effect
As the number of subprime mortgage–related home foreclosures and loan delinquencies has climbed, federal prosecutors and regulators have launched new investigations into subprime lender activities. Litigation has mounted in a multitude of jurisdictions over business disputes arising from subprime market dealings. Mortgage companies, brokers, banks, financial institutions, and other companies that created, sold, bought, insured and even rated mortgage-backed securities are targets of these investigations and lawsuits. BDO Consulting’s seasoned professionals have the investigatory and litigation experience to assist clients in responding to these situations.
