In our Hot Topic this week we have Troy Anderson, Director of Mortgage & Lending Solution Sales @ Finastra to discuss whether financial institutions are becoming more of a one-stop-shop for mortgages and why! And as far as all of Finastra's technology components whether it's, the customer experience when they're not even a customer yet all the way through, managing that through the core process with their solution. But as far as the LOS goes they are focusing on their mortgage bot which is end-to-end. And this is really their thoughts around, the end-to-end piece, as it stands with working for componentized platforms in the past, where you have multiple integrations, that fingers could be pointed. So as far as the five things to consider as far as the end-to-end option goes the real value. And VALUE is brought up a lot because feature functions ultimately result in some type of value. Some of them don't, some of them might just be widgets that may demo well. And you're like, this is great, but it really doesn't provide that much value. And they have seen that when they have been doing demonstrations, they wouldn't really focus on that too much, it might be cool, but it doesn't have as much value as some of these other things. So the end-to-end process value there is basically one vendor and one support path and what that amounts to is efficiency results! To read more on this podcast click here!!

In our Hot Topic this week, we have Rich Swerbinsky, President & Chief Operating Officer at The Mortgage Collaborative, on the program to discuss what they are seeing the mortgage industry doing……… A complete 180 in terms of the type of business climate, they are now close to two years of record production, massive amounts of refinancing activity, 30-year fixed rates, and the low to mid twos throughout all of that. And for lenders, it is really just about executing their pipeline and then managing some of the pandemic-related changes, like work from home and some of the changing borrower-related demands that went along with that. Now, as they get into the new year, they have seen 30-year fixed rates, interest rates have jumped up to their highest levels in over two years, the refinance volume has dropped, and lenders are hyper-focused on the future of their business. Automation, technology, partners M&A; either growth or, in some cases, looking to maybe merge or fold in with another organization, just the automation of tasks in general. It is mind-boggling how human the mortgage industry and the mortgage manufacturing process still are. Really? And the pandemics had a lot to do with it! Want to read more about the episode?
