New York City, New York -- The financial services industry is undergoing a major transformation as it adapts to the changing regulatory environment.

Post-financial crisis, regulators across the world have announced new regulations for the financial services industry. These regulations have been put in place to ensure that a financial crisis like the one seen in 2008-2009 can be averted. For companies in the financial sector, the biggest challenge at the moment is to adapt to the changing regulatory environment.

Mortgage lending activity in the U.S. has picked up in the last one year, driven by record low rates. Mortgage rates have fallen since the Federal Reserve announced a third round of quantitative easing, or QE. Under QE3, the Fed has been buying $40 billion in mortgage backed securities every month. With the Fed committed to the QE3 program, mortgage rates are expected to remain low. This should further boost mortgage lending activity and benefit PHH Corporation.
