Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report – 

Egregious and Unacceptable,” Fed Chair about Manufactured Home Connected Lender, Spotlight Report


At a press conference Wednesday, Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen was asked about possible enforcement actions against Wells Fargo.  As MHProNews has previously reported, Wells Fargo is one of the larger lenders in the manufactured housing mortgage space.

Warren Buffett led Berkshire Hathaway has significant stake in Wells Fargo.

Yellen initially said that what Wells Fargo (WFC, +0.73%) did was “egregious and unacceptable,” per MarketWatch.

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren (MA) has asked the Fed to remove the board of directors at Wells Fargo.

“We take our supervision responsibilities of the company very seriously, and we are attempting to understand what the root causes of those problems are and to address them,” Yellen said. “I’m not able to discuss confidential supervisory information and not yet able to tell you, but we’re committed to taking the actions we regard as necessary and appropriate to make sure the right set of controls are in place in that organization.”

Pressed to say when the Fed would act, Yellen offered: “We’re working very hard on it.”

The bottom line is that Wells Fargo may still face a penalty from the Federal Reserve for opening millions of unauthorized accounts.


Because of its structure, Triad Financial Service does not appear on the HMDA data. Sources suggest to MHProNews that Triad would come in above San Antonio Credit Union, which has since undergone a rebranding to its new name of Credit Human.
