IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LoanScorecard, a leading provider of automated underwriting technology, announced today that its technology will power Deephaven Mortgage’s launch of the new IDENTI-FI  AUS™.

Deephaven’s launch of this technology furthers its mission to empower mortgage professionals serving borrowers who face challenges securing a traditional government-financed mortgage. As a leading issuer of non-QM mortgage-backed securities, Deephaven aims to be the top provider of non-agency loans to the origination community, offering expanded prime, near-prime, non-prime, bank statement loan, investment property, and interest-only products.

In order to empower originators at the point of sale, Deephaven is introducing IDENTI-FI AUS. This Non-QM point-of-sale/pre-qualification tool leverages LoanScorecard’s Portfolio Underwriter™ technology. IDENTI-FI AUS will analyze the 1003 and credit report to instantly determine potential options across Deephaven’s non-agency loan programs. This, in turn, enables originators to place loans that might otherwise not qualify.  Originators can run Deephaven’s AUS findings on any loan file for a detailed breakdown of the qualification criteria applied along with documentation requirements.

“As a leader in the non-QM space, Deephaven embraces innovation that enables us to offer new products through technology that empowers originators for this underserved market,” said Mike Brenning, Deephaven’s Chief Production Officer. “LoanScorecard fits perfectly with this approach. We are excited about using their technology to empower originators to diversify into new markets, especially those doing non-QM production for the first time.”

Non-QM production has more than doubled this year and LOs are turning to the product in record numbers as the conventional market contracts.

“When we first engaged with Deephaven, it was clear that our goals in the non-QM lending space aligned,” said Ben Wu, LoanScorecard’s Executive Director. “Deephaven is looking to deploy capital to capture more of the growing non-QM market. IDENTI-FI AUS furthers this goal by making technology directly available to originators at their point of sale, to help them pre-qualify borrowers in real-time.”

Originators can access Deephaven’s IDENTI-FI AUS at any time at IdentifiAUS.com.

About Deephaven Mortgage

Deephaven is a full service, multi-channel, long-term investor in the non-QM space. The company provides access to financing to millions of underserved clients throughout the U.S. Deephaven was founded in 2012 to help rebuild the non-government mortgage market. At that point, mortgage credit had dramatically tightened in response to the housing crisis and millions of credit-worthy borrowers were still locked out of the mortgage market. In 2014 Deephaven was acquired by affiliates of Värde Partners, a $13 billion global investment firm. Deephaven has purchased over $2 billion of non-QM loans from partners since that time. Deephaven has completed six securitizations totaling over a $1.5 billion of sold bonds backed by non-QM home loans. For more information, please visit deephavenmortgage.com.
