Non-QM Leads the Way for Angel Oak’s Milestone Q3
Oct 11, 2018
Angel Oak Companies announced that it closed 2019 with more than $17 billion in gross assets under management and six non-QM securitizations, totaling approximately $3.1 billion, up from roughly $2 billion in 2018

Angel Oak Companies set a record for non-qualified mortgage (non-QM) lending in Q3 2018 as affiliated lenders Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions LLC, Angel Oak Home Loans LLC, and Angel Oak Prime Bridge LLC combined for more than $664 million in non-QM originations. That figure represents a 30-percent increase in volume from Q2 2018 and a 153-percent increase over Q3 2017. This brings the total year-to-date non-QM origination to $1.53 billion as of Q3 2018. In addition to the record-setting volume, Angel Oak also added over 100 new hires while continuing its national expansion.
“The entire mortgage industry has come to recognize the potential and significance of non-QM. It has rebounded incredibly well and has become the primary driver of growth in all aspects of the business. Angel Oak has become recognized as the leader in non-QM and we are thrilled to see our success in Q3, which has been a landmark occasion for both Angel Oak and non-QM as a whole,” said Mike Fierman, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Angel Oak Companies.
In addition to record lending volume, Angel Oak Capital Advisors LLC, the investment management affiliate of Angel Oak Companies, ended the quarter with approximately $9.5 billion in assets under management. Angel Oak Capital Advisors also completed a $395.8 million securitization, its largest ever, composed entirely of non-QM residential mortgages sourced through affiliated mortgage lenders Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions, Angel Oak Home Loans and Angel Oak Prime Bridge. Since 2015, Angel Oak Capital Advisors has successfully completed eight non-QM securitizations, accounting for approximately $2 billion in total securitized residential loans largely backed by mortgages originated through its affiliated mortgage lenders.
The record-setting performance of Angel Oak Companies has also led to growth across all affiliates, leading to a dramatic increase in both staff and geographic footprint. Angel Oak affiliates added 108 total new hires in Q3 and now employ 576 staff members. Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions expanded into Wyoming, New Hampshire and West Virginia; retail affiliate Angel Oak Home Loans added seven new branches and now operates in Texas, Louisiana, South Carolina and Alabama; and residential real estate investing affiliate Angel Oak Prime Bridge expanded operations into Tennessee, Mississippi and Louisiana. Acquired in the second quarter, Cherrywood Mortgage LLC, an affiliate of Angel Oak Commercial Lending, began funding loans.
“All corners of our business are growing fast. This upward trend is only going to continue as more people inside and outside of the industry come to respect Angel Oak for our stellar line of one-of-a-kind product offerings and our commitment to service,” Fierman said.
