Blue Water Financial Technologies (BWFT)
has added to its growing executive team with the hiring of Travis LaMar as Managing Director, Head of Capital Markets. As a Managing Director, LaMar joins a strong data science and analytics
team and brings 20 years of experience in mortgage secondary and capital markets to BWFT. LaMar will work out of BWFT’s headquarters in Minneapolis where he will focus on MSR brokerage, structuring solutions for MSR, and hedging solutions.
Prior to joining Blue Water, LaMar ran Mortgage Secondary Markets for Bank of Oklahoma following his role as a Managing Director at Incenter, where he was responsible for all aspects of pricing, hedging and loan, MBS and MSR sales. Earlier in his career, LaMar held Senior Trading roles at US Bank and GMAC-RFC, where he hedged a large MSR portfolio and ran a non-agency ARM desk, respectively.
“I’m thrilled at the opportunity to join Blue Water, as it is a homecoming on two fronts; a return to Minnesota and the chance to be reunited with Al and a core group of individuals with whom I have worked over a number of years,” LaMar said. “At Blue Water, we are committed to capital markets and technology innovation and with my years of secondary marketing and mortgage servicing experience, I’m confident I can help deliver better outcomes, deeper insights and greater efficiencies to our customers as we expand our capital markets capabilities.”
