Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions has announced the addition of seven new Account Executives

Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions LLC and Angel Oak Home Loans LLC have announced that their mortgage origination platforms have been reviewed for quality by ratings agencies Fitch and DBRS. Both ratings agencies affirmed the acceptable quality of the company’s non-agency, non-qualified mortgage originations. As a result, Angel Oak becomes one of the first non-prime mortgage originators to be reviewed in the entire industry.
 
“The Fitch and DBRS reviews serve as yet another milestone for Angel Oak,” said Tom Hutchens, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions. “This third-party validation of the quality of our mortgage products is a testament to what we’re all about. As an industry leader in non-qualified mortgages, we pride ourselves on creating high quality origination products that position our firm for long-term success.”
 
The rating agencies performed an on-site operational risk review of Angel Oak’s company, management, controls, origination practices and technology and deemed them to be an acceptable originator for rated transactions. The review from Fitch noted that, “the companies’ seasoned management team has extensive non-prime mortgage experience, a comprehensive sourcing strategy, and strong underwriting and risk management practices.”
 
“When you start with higher quality originations, you add significant value to the securitization platform,” said John Hsu, head of capital markets at Angel Oak Capital Advisors. “Rated deals price better than non-rated deals, which lowers the cost of capital and ultimately benefits the issuance platform.”
