The move leverages ongoing investment in loanDepot's servicing platform, allowing the company to scale for operational efficiency and enhanced customer service. Earlier this year, loanDepot began retaining servicing for newly funded Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae loans, while laying the groundwork for Ginnie Mae Mortgage-Backed Securities.

"Servicing our Ginnie Mae loans in-house is important for loanDepot, because it enables us to provide the best-in-class care and service that our customers have come to expect ? from initial consultation through servicing for the life of their loans," said loanDepot Executive Vice President of Servicing and Capital Market Operations, Dan Binowitz. "We're relying less on third party sub-servicing partners, which streamlines the process and allows us to work directly with our customers so we can offer the outstanding service that they expect and deserve."

To accommodate this move and continued growth, loanDepot recently upgraded its servicing portal?with robust, intuitive technology. loanDepot is also in the midst of recruiting for positions across its servicing organization, with a particular focus customer-facing talent.?For more information email?hello@loandepot.com?or visit?https://loandepot.com/careers.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
