Guild continued to showcase its strength in customer retention in the fourth quarter of 2019. Recapture volume reached $1.72 billion, representing a refinance recapture rate of 60 percent, a purchase recapture rate of 22.6 percent and an overall recapture rate of 54.28 percent. The total was up 548 percent from the $265.5 million recapture volume in the fourth quarter of 2018.
