Finicity, a Mastercard company and leading provider of open banking solutions, announced today that it is expanding its one-touch Mortgage Verification Service (MVS) availability within ICE Mortgage TechnologyTM, part of Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (NYSE: ICE), a leading global provider of data, technology and market infrastructure. This integration enables borrowers to permission data quickly and easily so lenders can verify assets, income, and employment in a streamlined interaction. The result: both parties are met with a significantly reduced turnaround time and improved borrower experience.
The verification can be accepted by both Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and makes the loan eligible for representation and warranty relief in place of a cumbersome and difficult manual loan documentation process. With more lenders and borrowers adopting digital mortgage experiences, moving from a largely manual process to a more digital one creates an enhanced overall experience.
“With MVS integrated into Encompass® and Encompass Consumer Connect®, our goals are to reduce risk for lenders, create an overall improved consumer experience, and ultimately simplify the mortgage process for everyone by helping borrowers prove their creditworthiness in a more robust, yet streamlined way,” said Steve Smith, Mastercard’s head of global open banking.
