Seeking Alpha: What Advisors Need To Know About The Mortgage Market

The Seeking Alpha podcast “SA For FAs” delivers information and analysis that helps financial advisors throughout their day. Hosted by Seeking Alpha senior editor and producer Gil Weinreich, the podcast addresses issues of current interest to financial advisors and active investors, such as macro analysis of current issues affecting markets, retirement planning, and asset allocation strategy.
 
In this April 2020 episode "The Asset Allocator: What Advisors Need To Know About The Mortgage Market," Mike Hennessy, CFA, CFP®, spoke with Seeking Alpha’s Gil Weinreich about the mortgage market.
 
With the Fed’s dramatic cut in rates, financial advisors are getting questions from clients about whether a refi is in order. Mike Hennessy, founder and CEO of financial advisory firm Harbor Crest Wealth Advisors in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, provides a big-picture view of this question. Mike Hennessy notes the fall in mortgage rates have not kept up with the drop in Fed funds or overall Treasury rates. This podcast explains the host of factors influencing mortgage rates, including the surprising reason his own refi effort fell apart.
