Blockchain-based, AI-powered mortgage advisor Home Lending Pal raises $2.2M in pre-Series A round led by TMC Emerging Technology Fund LP

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- The Mortgage Collaborative (TMC), the nation's largest independent cooperative network serving the mortgage industry, announced today that the TMC Emerging Technology Fund LP (the "Fund") recently led a pre-Series A investment round in Home Lending Pal, a technology-enabled marketplace that focuses on fair lending practices by using artificial intelligence and distributed ledger technology to turn a complex home research and origination process into an easy online shopping experience for both qualified and unqualified borrowers.

Home Lending Pal's platform assists consumers, particularly minorities and millennials, to assess their financial ability to take on a mortgage. It also guides them to take actions to improve their access to mortgage financing and select mortgage originators with whom they want to share their application information based on an AI algorithm that predicts probability to close.

"TMC understands that progressive approaches to addressing fair lending and bridging the homeownership gap are needed, and the unique access the Fund provides to TMC's network of prominent industry lenders will be vital in helping Home Lending Pal build a process that de-identifies HMDA data until after the underwriting decision is made," Bryan Young, co-founder and CEO of Home Lending Pal, said. "This revolutionary technology allows underwriting data to be digitally validated while using a single upload of documentation to enable multiple lenders across the country to determine if they will work with the borrower without human biases from the upfront disclosure of age, sex or race."

"Financial inclusion must start with equal access, borrower data empowerment, and personalized education without sales pressure," said Steven Better, co-founder and COO of Home Lending Pal. "Home Lending Pal reduces origination friction for qualified borrowers and allows personalized roadmaps for unqualified borrowers to become qualified. I am excited to work with TMC to modernize the process by emphasizing fair lending and putting people first."

"The mortgage industry is embracing the idea of providing educational financial resources to consumers long before they begin their home buying journey and seek out lenders for financing options. Home Lending Pal exemplifies this concept by providing a much-needed solution to a pervasive issue," said Jonathan Freed, Managing Partner of Holland Mortgage Advisors and one of the Fund's participating Limited Partners. "We are excited by Home Lending Pal's cutting edge technology and the opportunity to collaborate with their forward-thinking team to improve access to home financing solutions by all consumers."

Orlando-based Angel Syndicate Bluewave Investment Partners, CMFG Ventures, Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith, and CMFG Ventures Discovery Fund are other notable investors who joined the round. Home Lending Pal has raised $3.5 million to date for its digital mortgage advising platform, powered by artificial intelligence and blockchain. Home Lending Pal will demonstrate the next phase to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) in early September and release it to the public for consumer use and feedback by late September.

The Limited Partners of the TMC Emerging Technology Fund consist of some of the most technology-forward lender members of TMC who evaluate and invest in companies looking to advance the mortgage industry. The Fund continues to look for investment opportunities that will result in higher profitability and business process improvement for TMC lender members.

Staff Retention Tops List of Lender Concerns in 2021, Inaugural Survey from The Mortgage Collaborative Finds

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- The Mortgage Collaborative (TMC), the nation's largest independent mortgage industry cooperative network, has announced the results of its inaugural The Pulse of the Mortgage Industry survey ranking mortgage lenders' top concerns based on 598 executive responses from the co-op's 234 lender members.

The survey found these six issues to be most critical for mortgage lenders in 2021:

1. Retention of existing staff;

2. Enhancing customer experience at point of sale;

3. Scaling and modernizing loan manufacturing process to better insulate against volume fluctuations;

4. Measuring operations and employee productivity;

5. Implementing and integrating new technology; and

6. Fair lending compliance.

"After a lender hiring frenzy to manage last year's historic volumes, we fully expected staffing to be one of the top concerns this year, but to have it rank as lenders' No. 1 concern was truly a surprise," said Rich Swerbinsky, chief operating officer and president of TMC. "As much as the 'hire-and-fire cycle' has come to define how lenders typically manage the peaks and valleys of origination volume, there is also a real concern among lenders about the human impact of this strategy, as well as the operational and financial effects, and lenders seem to be ready to embrace alternative means to better manage volume fluctuations. This aligns neatly with the overall theme we observed in the list of lenders' top concerns of modernizing the generally inefficient mortgage loan manufacturing process."

"However, one of the top concerns lenders noted that falls outside this general theme is fair lending compliance," Swerbinsky added. "With the Biden Administration and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau telegraphing their collective intent to make housing equity a top regulatory priority, as well as the reinstatement of the disparate impact standard, our lender members are understandably focused on ensuring their policies and procedures are up to scratch to ensure compliance with existing fair lending laws."

TMC staff selected 40 relevant pressing issues facing mortgage lenders today and asked survey respondents to indicate the level of importance each issue held for them in their current role. The 40 issues were divided into six categories: culture and inclusion, efficiency and profitability, technology and data, compliance and legal, marketing and business development and miscellaneous. In terms of institution mix, 53.7% of survey respondents work for an independent mortgage lender and 46.3% for a depository lender (i.e., banks and credit unions). TMC will now compile and release Pulse Survey findings twice a year, with the next survey scheduled for November.

There are several TMC Lender Members that are finding new ways to participate in the 'Power of the Network' through TMC's Tech Fund, including Owen Lee, Co-owner of Success Mortgage Partners. "What I find so unique about being a limited partner in TMC's Emerging Tech Fund, is the opportunity to control my own investment dollars," said Lee. "Maybe more importantly, since the future-state of the mortgage industry will include more technology and not less, this role helps me stay educated and prepared as a business operator for what is coming next in our industry."

The Fund Manager of the TMC Fund, Sandy Selman from Asia West Inc., commented: "This transaction is a terrific foundational investment for the TMC Fund because of the demonstrated commercial success of Maxwell, the high caliber of their management team, and the quality and breadth of the syndicate.
