Southstate|Duncanwilliams Securities Corp Joins Agile’s Broker-Dealer Network

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- Agile, a groundbreaking fintech bringing mortgage lenders and broker-dealers onto a single electronic platform, today announced that SouthState|DuncanWilliams Securities Corp., a FINRA-regulated wholly owned subsidiary of SouthState Bank, N.A, has joined Agile's broker-dealer network. SouthState|DuncanWilliams Securities Corp. has been conducting TBA trades with better efficiency to execute at competitive pricing via Agile as of August 2022.

"I like the efficiency of an electronic quote and the speed of the trade," states Tony Mun, Head of TBA Trading Desk/Business at SouthState|DuncanWilliams Securities Corp. "The ability to adjust levels while the bid/ask is 'open' is a big differentiator, and I'm a big fan of the ability to sort/filter various functionalities within the Agile platform." Agile's technology removes manual calls, freeing up time and reducing the need to be on the phone all day.

Tony explained that the main difference between an Agile and non-Agile process is the quote mechanism. "I typically receive a phone call versus an electronic submission. My market assessment process remains the same." Agile's platform reduces the possibility of human error so broker-dealers can efficiently interact with the market [*see Note 1]. "The levels the clients receive are good, the process is quick and efficient and the platform provides decent liquidity for clients," says Mun.

"My personal experience with the Agile team has been exceptional. I have a long history with MCT so my interaction with Agile and this new platform should be seamless and highly productive," further emphasized Tony. "I, personally, am excited to work with and help originators grow their businesses while providing stable and consistent liquidity for their hedging needs. It is our hope and intention to build relationships over the years and ideally help the clients achieve their growth and business objectives," he added.

Agile's mission is to unlock the potential of an electronic marketplace and grow its network of lenders and broker-dealers to efficiently interact with the market and their counterparties. The idea of electronic trading isn't new, but for the mortgage originator, it's "game-changing," according to Mun.

"We're proud to have SouthState|DuncanWilliams Securities Corp. join Agile's broker-dealer network," shared Tawab Abawi, Director of Trading & Institutional Sales at Agile. "Tony and his team will bring additional liquidity and price transparency at an important time in the market for the mortgage industry."

When it comes to TBA trading, Tony believes that "the Agile platform has and will require the broker-dealer universe to rethink their business model as well as the IT approach as it relates to future clients."

Thelma Wright, Philadelphia’s Beloved ‘American Gangster’ Empowers a New Generation with Mentoring and Reform

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- It has been well over a decade since Thelma Wright, once reputed to be one of the most dangerous and powerful Black women in Philadelphia, came to the forefront and shocked the nation with true confessions in her memoir, "With Eyes From Both Sides - Living My Live In and Out of the Game." As the wife of Jackie Wright, a legendary heroin dealer in the city, Wright was intricately connected with the Black Mafia, a gang that operated Philly's drug trade throughout the 1970's and into the 1980's. Once widowed and left as the young mother of a toddler son, she discreetly took over his business, running a bi-coastal drug empire, unbeknownst to family and friends around her. Today however, Thelma Wright is impacting her city and the tri-state area in positive ways with her mentoring program, The Thelma Wright Empowerment Program.

Wright enjoys interacting with youth on a day-to-day basis, in an effort to steer teens and young adults away from the dangers that she once encountered, while guiding them on a positive path of personal development. "My mission is to help at-risk pre-teens and teenagers understand and maintain their self-worth. As a credible messenger, I create a foundation of confidence that empowers individuals to believe their contribution in life makes a difference," she explains.

"I care about the present and future of our communities, especially our African-American communities. I understand that in order to influence and educate, it's critical to authentically connect and relate. Our at-risk youth need to understand there are adults that care about their future and well-being. My goal is to provide the youth with the necessary guidance and tools to nurture and develop unique interpersonal relationships as well as assist each individual in their pursuit of happiness," notes Thelma Wright.

Wright's background sets her apart from the typical tales of abuse and abandonment. In fact, she is quick to acknowledge that it was the strength of good parenting and strong family ties that laid her solid foundation and saw her through her darkest days. The product of a middle working-class Black family, she attended Catholic school, was a star athlete as a child and was well provided for. It was romance and love that entangled her with one of the Black underworld's most notorious gangs.

Wright is perfectly positioned to garner all the credibility needed to effect change. She has been the subject of television documentaries, including Bio's "Gangsters: America's Most Evil" and the BET+ "American Gangster: The Trap Queens" series. Superstar recording artist/actress Mary J. Blige was even set to executive produce the USA Network drama series "Philly Reign" based on Wright's memoir, a project that lasted until the development stage. Wright was also commemorated in the special edition of Time-Life Magazine, "Women Outlaws, Their Crimes, Their Motives, Their Methods." A sought-after motivational speaker, Wright's wisdom has graced prisons, schools, youth centers and universities around the country.

In between her mentoring schedule, Wright stays busy fielding project inquiries from the entertainment industry and conducting media interviews about her life.

Agile Launches MBS Pool Bidding

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- Agile, a groundbreaking fintech bringing mortgage lenders and broker dealers on to a single electronic platform, today announced the launch of MBS pool bidding, enabling lenders and dealers to gain much-needed efficiencies and data through technology.

"Before this release, most clients conducted the spec pool bidding process via email and spreadsheets. Lenders send out pool details to their approved dealers and bids are sent back via email. This process is effective but not efficient," comments Phil Rasori, COO at Agile. "We're going to change that. Through Agile, lenders and dealers can exchange bids and conduct best execution analysis with access to robust loan-level data. And better data leads to sharper pricing."

As securitization rates increase, an increasing number of lenders may be exploring specified pools for the first time. Agile is launching MBS pool bidding to help bring lenders and dealers together more seamlessly, offering both user-friendly technology and high-touch customer service.

Agile's new MBS pool bidding offering includes:

* Efficiency and convenience by ingesting and streamlining email workflows into the Agile platform

* Best execution analysis on pool bids compiled automatically

* Granular loan-level data with all the specific characteristics lenders need to get sharper pricing

* Wide network of dealers returning bids at the push of a button

Curtis Richins, President & CEO of Agile, notes, "We've been partnering closely with a number of clients on our new MBS pool bidding offering after listening to many of the current challenges they face in the current BWIC process. We're excited to introduce MBS pool bidding to the marketplace because we believe the automation of this area of the industry was overdue. This is all part of our mission to revolutionize and digitize the mortgage capital markets."

Agile will be debuting the MBS pool bidding functionality on an industry webinar planned for October 14, 2021: https://trade-agile.com/webinar-introducing-agile-creating-a-better-mbs-market-for-all/

New MBS Fintech Agile Revolutionizes Trading with the Launch of RFQ Platform

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- Agile, a new fintech bringing mortgage lenders and broker dealers on to a single electronic platform, has formally announced the launch of its flagship RFQ (request for quote) platform. All MBS market participants can now participate on an electronic platform that expedites the exchange of To-Be-Announced Mortgage-Backed Securities (TBAs).

Despite the rise of electronic trading and digitization of financial services, MBS trading has largely been conducted over the phone. Phone-based trading is slow and impractical in generating numerous competitive bids. Agile is introducing a new, electronic way to quote MBS through a browser-based platform that digitizes the process of buying and selling TBAs. As a result, Agile enables the user to efficiently generate more competitive bids compared to legacy phone-based processes. (*See note 1.)

"Our mission is to bring the mortgage capital markets into a new digital era," comments Curtis Richins, President & CEO of Agile. "We're democratizing the TBA Market for lenders and dealers both big and small. We created Agile because we believe that a transparent market is a better market and because every counterparty deserves access to a fair, efficient and transparent marketplace."

Agile was developed with direct feedback from mortgage lenders and broker-dealers, resulting in a powerful platform that integrates smoothly with existing processes. With the browser-based platform, lenders can request trades from any device, anywhere. Agile's three step process for digital TBA trading communication can help lenders improve efficiency, while expanding the number of quotes they receive and their network of counterparties. For the first time, all mortgage lenders can trade with regional and primary dealers electronically.

Agile's initial roll-out began January 1, 2021 and demonstrated rapid adoption across the mortgage secondary market. Agile has supported 261 financial institutions who have exchanged 95.6 thousand quotes. (*See note 2.) Lenders have been quick to welcome the benefits of the new platform.

Early adopter Andrew Stringer (Director of Secondary/Capital Markets at First Bank), said, "After a busy conference day, I found myself with moments left to optimize coverage before market close. A few taps in Agile and I was done! No calls, no computer, no manual calculations - just a quick TBA trade and back to unwinding after a long day."

Agile has already received strong participation from the broker-dealer community, thanks to new opportunities for growth and operational improvement. Agile provides access to an ever-growing network of lenders, facilitates increased quote requests from approved counterparties, and delivers the efficiencies of a digital trade desk. Broker-dealers also have the benefit of straight-through processing with leading trade order management systems. Featured broker-dealers currently on the platform include, but are not limited to, the following: BMO Financial, BOK Financial Securities, CMG Securities, Daiwa Capital Markets, ED&F Man, Huntington Securities, Janney Montgomery Scott, JVB Financial, Performance Trust, Raymond James, South Street Securities, Stifel, Nicolaus & Co, and StoneX.

Brent Giese, Executive Director of Fixed Income at Daiwa Capital Markets America, said: "Working with Agile has been very productive and beneficial to Daiwa's growing mortgage banking sales franchise. With access to many qualified mortgage originators, the platform provides an efficient means to reach significant volumes. The technology is advanced and allows for effective performance feedback while their straight though processing capability eliminates costly trade errors. Simply put, I have been very impressed and am thankful to have this valued partnership."

Wig Company Founder and Entrepreneur Turns the Tables and Heads

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- When Kimberly Cloud found herself out on the street due to domestic violence, she didn't let that stop her. In fact, the incident just served to give her strength to not only start her own business, but to give back to the community too. With a passion for making wigs, she started working with her local chapter of Dress for Success and then launched her own line of wigs, Genuinely Michelle Wigs, LLC.

From a young age, Cloud has always enjoyed experimenting with different hairstyles and styling wigs. She learned a lot from her mother and now she's taking it to the next level.

"I'm not the type of person to let a bad situation keep me down," she says. "When I found myself living at a women's shelter, I wasn't about to feel sorry for myself. It only gave me more reason to work harder and keep going."

Cloud started working with her local chapter of Dress for Success, a global not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. She quickly realized that they needed some help in the hair department and jumped into action with Wigs for Success.

She's quickly become known for creating beautiful wigs and making women feel good about themselves again.

"Giving back is so important to me," she says.

After launching Wigs for Success, she decided this was the perfect launch pad for yet another business - Genuinely Michelle Wigs. She's currently selling creative and stylish wigs online and hopes to continue to build her brand and make a serious imprint in the wig world. Her ultimate goal is to open a hair factory where she'll manufacture her own hair from synthetic and human hair, alike.

Cloud says women can wear these wigs for up to a week as long as they maintain and wash them. She prides herself on using high quality, long-lasting materials.

"The best way to create wealth is to generate a diverse team that will back up your dreams and aspirations," Cloud says.

As a result, she plans to pursue investors and aspires to meet with CEOs that she respects and admires. Among them is Vivica Fox, an American actress, producer and television host who has her own line of wigs; and Daymond John, an American businessman and TV personality, best known for his role on "Shark Tank." John has even demonstrated an interest in her one of her products.

To date, Cloud has appeared in several media outlets and has no plans of slowing down anytime soon.

Deliberately Considerate People Making a Positive Difference

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- Sugarpeel announces newest Deliberately Considerate™ digital publication recognizing people trying to change the world for the better, featuring Native American Oren Lyons, Faithkeeper of the Onondaga Nation and international advocate for our Mother Earth, and Indigenous rights.

Tom Szaky, CEO, envisioned TerraCycle twenty years ago - today it's a global recycling leader in 20 countries "eliminating the idea of waste" through reusable consumer packaging with partners like Puretto, Tide and Haagen-Dazs instead of landfilling it to create a circular economy and zero waste.

"Our ability to survive comes down to sharing," said Oren Lyons, Faithkeeper of the Onondaga Nation. "This is a fundamental principal of the Haudenosaunee. Share what you have - this is meant broadly, and have respect for the individual, family, community and the world."

"All of our featured companies are showing respect for our world in very meaningful ways," Lyons said.

Ashley Basla, Editor-in-Chief, Deliberately Considerate™, said, "The overarching theme is the effects of climate change, which includes the pandemic being felt by all, some disproportionately more than others." It's impossible not to reassess our values. Now is the time to act. Now is the time to focus on the serious, not the superficial.

"We included B Corps, companies that are certified by B Lab, a leader in economic systems change."

B Corporations are certified and recognized as new kinds of businesses. They balance purpose and profits, doing good for people and the planet, including Barnana. They upcycled 100 million pounds of ugly bananas into snacks, taking a bite out of the 1.3 billion tons of food wasted every year, while supporting sustainable products that have a minimal adverse effect on the environment.

We recognize and honor five diverse women lead businesses, uplifting other women, helping society, and the planet, such as Amy Denet Deal. Amy is a fashion designer that returned to her native Navajo roots, restoring, repurposing and upcycling vintage textiles, while supporting vital Native American necessities most take for granted.

About Sugarpeel

Sugarpeel was founded in 2011 as a lifestyle website featuring sustainable fashion brands, healthy recipes, product reviews, and insightful interviews showcasing successful women business owners.

Sugarpeel created and launched Deliberately Considerate in 2018, but it was a lifetime journey of purpose. Deliberately Considerate is dedicated to the brand's formidable pillars: sustainability, healthy living, socially and environmentally minded companies and women led businesses.

Deliberately Considerate supports, promotes and positively reinforces the good in humanity, while finding areas of improvement and opportunity to both motivate and accomplish more. By staying true to our brand's pillars, together we can make a difference.

Deliberately Considerate serves as a facilitator to shed light and empower our brand values by learning from innovators, those who dare to stand up for their beliefs and buck the status quo, leaders and dreamers that do not take the same paths as those willing to exploit fundamental societal good for profit.

Argosy Real Estate Partners selects Pereview as its new asset management platform

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- Commercial real estate and private equity investment firm Argosy Real Estate Partners (https://argosyrep.com) has chosen Pereview Software (https://pereviewsoftware.com) to support its growing portfolio and data strategy.

Based in Philadelphia, Argosy Real Estate Partners is an institutional diversified real estate fund manager focused on the lower middle market. They invest with experienced operating partners across asset classes through opportunistic/value-add, core-plus, and opportunity zone investment vehicles.

Argosy Real Estate Partners regularly receives reporting from operating partners in the form of Excel, Word and PDF documents which have historically been manually aggregated for analysis and reporting purposes. Pereview will work with Argosy to automatically aggregate and manage that data across the asset lifecycle.

"With the continued growth of the portfolio, we recognized the need to scale our technology to stay nimble and enhance decision making" said Will McGinley, Principal of Argosy Real Estate Partners. "We intend to utilize the full capabilities of Pereview to increase internal efficiencies by automating the aggregation of our trusted data into a centralized database, integrate with our forecasting and valuation models, and enable expedited business intelligence and reporting across our real estate portfolios."

Daryl Pitts, Senior Vice President of Global Sales for Pereview, said that he is honored that McGinley and his team have chosen Pereview as their software and data partner.

"Argosy Real Estate Partners searched the market for a few years and found numerous software providers that could have successfully helped them collect and visualize their data - but Will and his team demanded more," Pitts said. "Only Pereview was able to bring to the table the ability to now take collected and governed data and go further with it - putting all of their data at their asset manager's fingertips."

Pereview's global implementation partner, Lionpoint Group (https://www.lionpointgroup.com), will play a major role in the relationship, providing Argosy Real Estate Partners deep real estate expertise and proven best practices.

Neil Elliott, Managing Director at Lionpoint, acknowledged the significance that Pereview's platform offers real estate clients.

"We're delighted to have confirmed our strategic partnership with Pereview," Elliott said. "As an implementation partner, we're able to help deliver Pereview's value to real estate clients and help solve their data aggregation and reporting challenges.
