Time:12:00 PM - 02:00 PM
Location: Urban Institute, Washington, DC -20037

The Urban Institute invites you to an October 6th data talk on the past and future performance of home equity lines of credit (HELOCs).

Some have speculated that there could be a second wave of defaults as home equity loans, many of which had 10-year interest-only periods, begin to amortize.
