Provident Funding recently added its name to the list of lenders participating in the Informative Research Affiliate Program. This program, launched in 2006, links lenders with credit reporting agencies and automated underwriting system/loan origination system technology providers. It streamlines the common practice of re-issuing mortgage credit information by creating a "network" of subscribers with standards of safety and accuracy.
The addition of Provident Funding to the Informative Research Affiliate Program enables originators who use subscriber credit reporting agencies to access Provident loan programs and rates. Since it facilitates the re-issue of credit information, the arrangement will also help originators protect and preserve their borrower's credit scores.
