"The latest enhancement to CompassPoint represents Black Knight's continued focus on innovation for the secondary market to help market participants improve profit margins and reduce risk."

According to Black Knight, the algorithm can solve for the optimal combination of pools based on the company's configurations and given SIFMA requirements, as well as credit stipulations and volume thresholds imposed by servicing buyers and the GSEs. Additionally, Black Knight revealed that the solution also gives lenders the ability to incorporate the borrower FICO score, property type, property state and more.
