Mortgage Capital Trading Scores High Marks in Overall Satisfaction, Lender Loyalty, and Functionality Effectiveness According to Recent Study by STRATMOR Group

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Mortgage Capital Trading (MCT), a leading mortgage hedge advisory and secondary marketing software firm, announced that the 2018 STRATMOR Technology Insight Study rated MCT as the leader in overall satisfaction, lender loyalty, and functionality effectiveness in the production pipeline hedging industry, according to survey respondents.

According to STRATMOR Group, "72 percent of respondents use third-party tools for Production Pipeline Hedging and 29.9 percent chose Mortgage Capital Trading (MCT) to conduct these analyses. Further, MCT's Lender Loyalty Score value is an impressive 81; 20 points higher than the overall average score."

The STRATMOR Group study results were gathered from a broad group of lender executives with the goal of providing lenders with data on the technology solutions available in the market today. Of the executives who responded to the survey, 45 percent were the head of, or part of, the technology department. Additionally, more than two-thirds of respondents were independent mortgage bankers, while 31 percent were banks or credit unions.

"There's never been a better time to be at MCT," said Curtis Richins, President of MCT. "We have so many new technologies and innovations rolling out that everybody is excited about the future. We're proud clients still experience the same boutique-style customer service despite our rapid growth."

In the study, MCT was ranked the leader in overall satisfaction and functionality effectiveness ratings. Survey respondents gave MCT an overall satisfaction score of 9.1 out of 10, compared to the overall average satisfaction rating of 8.3. Additionally, MCT was the highest-rated vendor across nine areas of functionality effectiveness, including margin tracking, ease of use, reporting capabilities, and overall customer support. The majority of clients rated MCT as "highly effective / competitively advantaged" in eight of the nine functionality effectiveness areas.

"We're very pleased with the results of STRATMOR's 2018 Technology Insight Survey," says Richins. "The results reflect MCT's relentless mission to provide clients with ground-breaking new technology, such as the recently released bid tape AOT tri-party agreement automation within the Bid Auction Manager (BAM) whole loan trading platform."

"Before the Tri-Party automation, I had to write in all the fields, print and attach all the confirms, sign, scan, and send for every assignment-of-trade," said Andrew Stringer, Directory of Secondary and Capital Markets at First Bank in a recently published case study. "Without the automation, I probably wouldn't bother with AOT transactions very often, because the time cost might outweigh the pickup."

ReverseVision and STRATMOR Group Partner to Integrate First-Ever HECM Borrower Satisfaction Benchmark into MortgageSAT

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- ReverseVision, the leading provider of technology and training for the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) industry, today announced it is partnering with leading mortgage industry advisory firm STRATMOR Group to develop the first-ever HECM borrower satisfaction benchmark as part of STRATMOR's MortgageSAT Borrower Satisfaction Program.

Many of the borrower satisfaction measures that apply to traditional loans also apply to HECM loans, but there are unique elements to HECM origination that factor into the borrower experience as well, such as the requirement that HECM borrowers complete reverse mortgage counseling with an independent third party. To ensure its MortgageSAT program accurately considers these unique HECM processes, STRATMOR Group will build a tailored survey with input from ReverseVision.

"Bringing MortgageSAT to reverse lenders is exciting for a number of reasons," said STRATMOR MortgageSAT Program Director Mike Seminari. "As the dominant provider of reverse mortgage technology, ReverseVision is uniquely positioned to engage a large sample of lender participants, making this a true benchmark lenders can use to assess their performance against a meaningful peer dataset."

According to ReverseVision President and CEO John Button, reverse mortgages still suffer from a poor reputation despite the fact that the causes are long resolved with a HECM program that is safer than ever. "We expect the MortgageSAT survey results, including borrower comments, will shed light on the fact that reverse borrowers are thoughtful people who are planning for their financial futures," said Button. "The vast majority of them are very happy with both the process and the loan product."

With the MortgageSAT program, ReverseVision customers will be able to survey every borrower within 24 hours of loan closing. Direct, instant borrower feedback, along with deep insights into the loan process and the people involved, will enable lenders to pinpoint sources of borrower dissatisfaction and quickly take corrective action. MortgageSAT will provide individual scores for each participant in the HECM process (e.g., counselor, loan officer or broker, processor, underwriter and closer) and measure the borrower's perception of the entire experience with analysis by region, branch and individual employee.

"We're eager to give reverse lenders the ability to understand what's working and what's not working in their origination process," said Seminari. "MortgageSAT's value for lenders includes its ability to deliver actionable insights for mortgage leaders and coaching moments for employees."

New Data from ReverseVision Shows Influx of Traditional Lenders and Directly Licensed Clients into HECM Industry

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- ReverseVision, the leading provider of software and technology for the reverse mortgage industry, reported a record number of newly licensed lenders entering the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) market in 2017, according to data from its RV Exchange (RVX) loan origination system (LOS). Over the same time period, ReverseVision saw an average of three new mortgage bankers begin offering HECM loans each day.

"Growing interest in HECM lending among traditional mortgage lenders is a trend that STRATMOR Group has been tracking for some time now," said Jim Cameron, senior partner at mortgage industry advisory firm STRATMOR Group. "The increased activity, which shows no signs of slowing, appears to be driven by factors inclulding favorable economic conditions, growth in HECM's core borrower demographic and the availability of HECM sales and origination technologies that compare favorably with their forward lending counterparts."

ReverseVision collects HECM data and insights from its flagship RVX LOS as well as its RV Sales Accelerator (RVSA) software. Since ReverseVision technology is used by a substantial share of the HECM market, including all 10 of the top-producing HECM lenders, its data is a strong indicator of overall industry trends.

RVX serves as a centralized exchange that connects all participants in the lifecycle of a HECM loan, allowing them to log in to a single system to share documents and information throughout the loan process. The system encompasses everything from point-of-sale, processing and underwriting to funding, post-closing and secondary marketing.

"In additional to an influx of traditional lenders and banking institutions entering the space, we have also experienced an increase in lenders leveraging our full suite of products for various reasons, including compliance," said Wendy Peel, VP of sales and marketing at ReverseVision. "Many of these mortgage bankers are realizing for the first time the impressive level of control they gain over their businesses by directly licensing our RVX software. They are finding that this control over products, pipeline and closing documents is a distinct advantage in enabling their forward loan officers to offer HECM loans, making the technology well worth the investment."

"Only after becoming a directly licensed RVX lender did I experience the platform's true potential," said Omar Ennabe, a mortgage originator with Ennkar, a division of San Diego-based Dyjero Corporation. "Having full access to administrative controls gives me the power to determine my doc packages and fees as well as efficiently manage my loan officers' pipelines - all of which I expect will result in increased loan volume."

Ennkar is an up-and-coming mortgage bank that is swiftly climbing the ranks of top HECM originators. The company is actively seeking branch acquisition opportunities to further expand its footprint on the West Coast and beyond.

In response to the influx of traditional lenders into the HECM industry, ReverseVision will dedicate an entire track of programming at its UserCon 2018 to educating those who have recently entered the HECM market or are considering doing so. The third annual event will be held February 6-8 at the Kona Kai Resort & Spa in San Diego. For more information, visit https://www.reversevision.com/usercon2018.
