Announcing a New Role for AD&Co in the 4th Annual Credit Risk Transfer Symposium

December 18, 2018 – Information Management Network (IMN) and Andrew Davidson & Co., Inc. (AD&Co) are proud to announce that AD&Co will serve as a Lead Sponsor of the 4th Annual Credit Risk Transfer Symposium on April 25, 2019 at the Conrad Hotel in New York. AD&Co founder and president, Andrew Davidson, will be joining a newly launched CRT Advisory Board.

As experts and innovators in the credit risk transfer market, AD&Co partnered with IMN to launch and co-host the first major conference on this subject. Since the inaugural symposium in October 2016, much has changed. Credit risk transfer has grown from a little known asset class to an essential part of the mortgage market, no doubt in part due to the exposure granted by the symposium, and by the conversations started there.

As co-host, AD&Co placed the focus on the market and market participants in all their manifestations, taking the discussion well beyond policy, while also promoting discussions of how developments in this market impacted housing and GSE reform.

AD&Co helped IMN to foster networking among key investors, issuers and reinsurers, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, dealers and traders, policy makers and risk managers, rating agencies and law firms. IMN and AD&Co were thrilled by the tremendous response to this event and by the commitment shown to this growing market by sponsors, investors, issuers, speakers and delegates.

Now that the market has become larger, more sophisticated and sustainable, and as both the conference and the CRT asset class have matured, AD&Co will be assuming a new role as advisory board member. This will allow for diverse participation in setting the agenda and speaker selection for the conference. IMN is excited to be working with AD&Co in this new capacity, and to the inclusion of additional viewpoints on the program advisory board.

For more information about registration, speaker roles and sponsorships, please contact Lauren Kerr, Conference Producer for the CRT Symposium at, or +1 212 901 0521.

We look forward to your continued participation in this evolving Symposium and as always, we welcome your feedback.
