|Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities Disclosure [Abstract]|
|Derivative and Risk Management Activities||
The Company’s principal market exposure is to interest rate risk, specifically long-term U.S. Treasury and mortgage interest rates, due to their impact on mortgage-related assets and commitments. The Company is also subject to changes in short-term interest rates, such as LIBOR, due to their impact on certain variable rate asset-backed debt such as warehouse lines of credit. Various financial instruments are used to manage and reduce this risk, including forward delivery commitments on mortgage-backed securities or whole loans and interest rate swaps.
The Company did not have any derivative instruments designated as hedging instruments or subject to master netting and collateral agreements as of June 30, 2021 (Successor) and December 31, 2020 (Predecessor), for the Successor period from April 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021 and the Predecessor period from January 1, 2021 to March 31, 2021. The Company also had no derivative instruments designated as hedging instruments or subject to master netting and collateral agreements for the Predecessor period for the three months ended and six months ended June 30, 2020.
The following tables summarize the amounts recorded in derivative assets and payables and other liabilities, related to derivative liabilities, in the Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition for the periods indicated (in thousands):
The Company is exposed to risk in the event of
non-performanceby counterparties in their derivative contracts. In general, the Company manages such risk by evaluating the financial position and creditworthiness of counterparties, monitoring the amount of exposure and/or dispersing the risk among multiple counterparties. While the Company does not presently have master netting arrangements with its derivative counterparties, it does either maintain or deposit cash as margin collateral with its clearing broker to the extent the relative value of its derivatives are above or below their initial strike price. The Company pledged deposits of $4.1 million and $12.0 million as of June 30, 2021 (Successor) and December 31, 2020 (Predecessor), respectively. Total margin collateral is included in other assets, net, in the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition.
The entire disclosure for derivative instruments and hedging activities including, but not limited to, risk management strategies, non-hedging derivative instruments, assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses, and methodologies and assumptions used in determining the amounts.
