"Our partnership can allow Ellie Mae to accelerate its momentum as it innovates on behalf of lenders and homebuy- ers with the ultimate goal of helping people achieve the American dream of homeowner- ship." Expanding Partnerships LONESCORECARD NOW PROVIDES ITS PORTFOLIO UNDERWRITING TECHNOLOGY TO DEEPHAVEN'S CORRESPONDENT DIVISION TOO. I rvine, California-based LoanScorecard, a provider of nonagency automated under- writing systems has expanded its partner- ship with Deephaven Mortgage to power IDENTI-FI AUS for Deephaven's correspon- dent division. LoanScorecard already powers IDENTI-FI AUS for the mortgage lender's wholesale division. With this expanded partnership, LoanScorecard's Portfolio Underwriter technology will power IDENTI-FI AUS, a non-QM point-of-sale/pre-qualification tool, for Deephaven's correspondent division. IDENTI- FI AUS lets approved correspondent partners run loan scenarios and instantly determine po- tential options across Deephaven's nonagency loan programs—allowing them to expand their potential borrower base. Correspondent lenders can run an AUS findings report on any loan file for a detailed breakdown of Deephaven's qualification crite- ria and documentation requirements through this platform. "We've been using LoanScorecard's technol- ogy for the past six months in our wholesale division and have already seen tremendous success helping LOs at the ever important point of sale," said Mike Brenning, Chief Production Officer at Deephaven. "We're con- fident leveraging LoanScorecard's technology will allow our partners to offer non-QM prod- ucts that can help them responsibly expand their businesses—and ultimately replicate the success we've had in our wholesale division." Deephaven Mortgage provides private-capital liquidity for non-Qualified Mortgage (non-QM) loans. The company partners with correspon- dent lenders who share its vision for rebuild- ing the nongovernment mortgage market while providing common sense-driven underwrit- ing decisions centered around a borrower's ability to repay. Deephaven's products include expanded-prime, near-prime, non-prime, inves- tor advantage, and foreign national. "Taking borrowers through the origination process only to encounter they don't qualify is a reason many correspondent lenders shy away from non-QM products," said Ben Wu, Executive Director at LoanScorecard. "IDENTI-FI AUS empowers correspondent lenders to offer non-QM products by analyz- ing loan data against product guidelines and determining fit within seconds." LoanScorecard provides nonagency AUS, loan pricing solutions and borrower point- of-sale designed to meet today's regulatory challenges and capitalize on current market opportunities. The company helps institutions address CFPB regulations through its QM Findings, a qualified mortgage (QM) engine, which has rendered more than five million QM findings reports to-date and supports banks and credit unions preparing for the upcoming impacts of CECL.
