MQMR Adds Mortgage-Focused Social Media Monitoring Platform

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Mortgage Quality Management and Research, LLC (MQMR) announced today that it has added ActiveComply, a social media monitoring platform, to its suite of audit, risk and compliance-focused solutions for financial institutions and independent mortgage lenders.

The platform, which is offered through a partnership agreement with the platform's developer and namesake, provides lenders with the ability and agility to proactively manage, monitor and extend their companies' social media reach while maintaining compliance with financial marketing and records retention regulations.

"Social media has become a ubiquitous component of today's marketing strategies for loan officers and mortgage companies, so much so that lenders need more comprehensive tools for monitoring social media compliance than simply 'the eyeball test,'" said MQMR President Michael Steer. "Because MQMR's compliance team has conducted thousands of marketing compliance reviews, which include social media content, we are keenly aware of the challenge lenders face in this regard, and by providing an automated solution for monitoring, we are not only expanding our clients' compliance coverage, but also providing them with valuable peace of mind."

The ActiveComply platform can be configured to reflect the user's unique corporate social media policy specifications and offers a simple user interface and one-touch executive reporting capabilities, as well as notifications sent to a company's in-house compliance team with flagged content for review. Available functionality includes but is not limited to: discovery and continuous monitoring of company and loan officer social media accounts and websites, detection of unauthorized online activity, identification of missing compliance requirements and archival of online contents to meet regulatory record retention requirements.

MQMR: FNMA Updates to Selling Guide Compels Lenders to Conduct Independent Audit Reviews of QC Process Before Year’s End

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Mortgage Quality Management and Research, LLC (MQMR) President Michael Steer reminded lenders to conduct an independent audit review of their quality control (QC) process immediately in deference to updates to "Subpart D1, Lender QC Process" of the Fannie Mae Selling Guide.

Among other changes, Fannie Mae made explicit its requirements for independently auditing QC processes, which must be included in seller/servicers' QC plan and implemented by January 1, 2020:

* The lender must have an independent audit process to ensure that its QC process and procedures are followed by the QC staff, and that assessments and conclusions are recorded and consistently applied. The findings must be accurately recorded and consistent with the defects noted in the lender's system of record.

* Results of the QC audit must be distributed to senior management. It must include an affirmative statement that no influence from other business units or bias in the QC conclusions was apparent. Management must distribute the results to the appropriate areas within the organization and an action plan must be established for remediation or changes to policies or processes, if appropriate. The lender must provide a copy of the QC audits and the audit of the QC process to Fannie Mae upon request.

"Regulators have been and are increasingly requiring lenders to build a firewall between the review/audit function and the processes and departments under said review and provide evidence that such a firewall exists. With both monetary and labor resources at a premium, this can be a tall order for a lender to achieve internally," said Steer. "Outsourcing this function to an experienced third party helps ease the financial and personnel burdens of meeting these kinds of changes, especially when given a narrow window for compliance like Fannie Mae has done here."

"Unofficially, we're also hearing that lenders that have not performed an audit of their QC function within the last two years will be cited for this oversight in their next MORA exam so lenders would be well advised to complete this audit as soon as possible," Steer said. "With January 1, 2020 right around the corner, lenders are focusing their efforts today on volume, end-of-year MERS audits, financial audits and 2020 strategic planning. Thus, it makes sense for Fannie Mae seller/servicers to partner with MQMR, the industry leader for internal audit, to perform an audit of the lenders' QC functions to meet these new requirements."

For more information on Fannie Mae's requirements for independent QC process audits, read MQMR's free compliance newsletter, "FAQ: FNMA Update - It's All About the Independence!"

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Mortgage Quality Management and Research, LLC (MQMR) announced today that its National Account Executive Britt Haven has completed Level I of the Certified Mortgage Compliance Professional (CMCP) Certification and Designation program offered by the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA). The MBA first announced the availability of Level I in April 2018. Haven is one of the earliest to complete Level I and earn the Achievement Certification.

"The MBA's CMCP designation serves as an indicator to the industry of an individual's level of commitment to upholding the highest standards of compliance and loan quality, and I commend Britt for taking the initiative to pursue this highly valuable and prestigious certification."

"Despite being categorized as entry-level, the Level I program provided a comprehensive, foundational understanding of mortgage compliance rules and regulations, and has inspired me to not only complete the CMCP program, but also to pursue other MBA-sponsored accreditations, such as the Certified Mortgage Banker designation, to ensure I am able to deliver maximum value to our clients."

MQMR: Mortgage Industry Margin Compression Calls for Fixed-Cost Approach to Compliance Support

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Mortgage Quality Management and Research, LLC (MQMR) President Michael Steer today advised lenders to adopt a fixed-cost approach to compliance support in the face of margin compression and declining per-loan profits. By investing in a fixed-cost solution for compliance, lenders can better manage their monthly expenses while ensuring they remain compliant, thus avoiding potential financial penalties associated with non-compliance.

"When internal compliance resources aren't enough, lenders often engage in a one-off relationship with an attorney or other third-party advisory firm specializing in mortgage compliance to address a specific question or issue," Steer said. "Not only is this approach more costly, but it can also expose the lender to unanticipated risk due to the natural delay caused by getting the third-party firm up-to-speed once the contract has been signed. Engaging in a more long-term relationship provides better cost savings and ensures lenders have access to the compliance advice and support they need when they absolutely need it."

To this end, MQMR created its Monthly Compliance On Demand Support program to provide a more cost-effective solution for addressing lenders' ongoing compliance needs. For a flat monthly fee, lenders have discretionary access to MQMR's team of compliance experts to address any compliance questions or concerns.

In addition, MQMR can assist lenders with a range of other compliance needs, including:

* Guidance on federal, state and loan-level questions;
* Development and review of policies and procedures;
* Reviews of advertising and marketing materials, including websites;
* Creation of a Compliance Management System (CMS);
* State examination assistance;
* Advice on loan originator compensation; and
* Recommendations on overall best practices.

"When a lender has an urgent compliance question, their first thought should not be, 'How much is it going to cost me to get this answered?'" Steer noted. "Charging by the minute or the hour may work in some instances, but in today's challenging mortgage environment, lenders simply cannot afford to incur these types of unanticipated expenses. With the fixed-cost approach MQMR provides, lenders rest easy knowing compliance advice and support is only a phone call or email away and that they'll never have to question picking up the phone to get an answer. This is why so many of the nation's top lenders have partnered with MQMR to make it through these challenging times."

In addition to improving MQMR's client-facing operations, Sinn ensures the smooth performance of back-office operations.
