Wolters Kluwer and LoanSifter partner to provide electronic access to compliance disclosures

Sep 28, 2009

Wolters Kluwer Financial Services and LoanSifter have announced that the two companies have integrated Wolters Kluwer Financial Services’ Disclosure Manager solution with LoanSifter’s integrated web-based 1003 mortgage application and product, pricing and eligibility engine. As a result, banks, credit unions and lenders using LoanSifter’s solution to originate mortgage loans will have seamless, electronic access to Wolters Kluwer Financial Services’ VMP Mortgage Solutions compliance disclosures. Financial institutions have relied upon the disclosures to help meet all state and federal regulatory requirements for nearly four decades. The new integration will enable users of LoanSifter’s integrated 1003 mortgage application solution to generate standard and customized initial disclosure documents through Wolters Kluwer Financial Services’ Disclosure Manager solution, and then electronically deliver them to borrowers for e-signature. The platform also gives financial institutions the option of completely and securely outsourcing the printing and mailing of paper disclosures when needed or requested by the borrower through Wolters Kluwer Financial Services’ mail fulfillment center. Because Wolters Kluwer Financial Services’ Disclosure Manager platform automatically generates compliance documentation for LoanSifter’s lenders, they can eliminate the regulatory requirement burden associated with determining which documents are required for a specific transaction and jurisdiction. Through the secure electronic delivery of disclosures, lenders can also realize considerable time and cost-savings through reduced printing, handling and mailing costs versus the traditional manual, labor-intensive paper-based process. “With LoanSifter’s versatile Web site pricing portal and 1003 applications, financial institutions are able to deliver accurate real-time quotes and streamline the application process, while reducing mistakes from within their existing Web sites,” said Bruce Backer, president of LoanSifter. “This key integration with Wolters Kluwer Financial Services closes the loop by automatically delivering up-to-date disclosures, ensuring proper compliance and reducing overhead.” “No other provider can help financial institutions manage more of their regulatory compliance and operational risks tied to mortgage lending than Wolters Kluwer Financial Services,” said Jason Marx, vice president and general manager, Mortgage, for the company. “By working with leading providers like LoanSifter, we’re helping more institutions successfully and compliantly grow their lending businesses.” For more information, visit or
