CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- December 03, 2012

Carlisle & Gallagher Consulting Group (CG, www.carlisleandgallagher.com), a
management and technology consulting firm serving the financial services
industry, today released findings from its U.S. consumer mortgage study.

CG surveyed consumers to learn about their views toward home ownership, how
recent changes in the mortgage industry impacted their application experience,
what factors are most important in the mortgage application process, and if
consumers would be willing to consider an alternate mortgage provider.

According to the 618 U.S. consumers who participated in CG’s online study in
September 2012:

  *80% of U.S. consumers would consider a mortgage from a non-bank
  *1 in 3 consumers would consider a mortgage from Walmart
  *48% would consider a mortgage from PayPal

Although, consumer satisfaction with primary banks ranked high (81%) the study
reveals continued frustrations with current mortgage processes that could
drive consumers to alternative home loan providers:

  *High interest rates, high payments, and taxes and escrow are the top three
    most frustrating issues regarding consumers’ current mortgages
  *56% of consumers blame slow execution as one of the most painful aspects
    of the mortgage process
  *32% said difficult to communicate with
  *31% said unable to track the status of their mortgage application
  *26% said untrustworthy advice

“Consumer attitude is driven by three things, price, service and trust,” said
Doug Hautop, Senior Manager and Lending Practice lead for CG. “Institutions
looking to gain market share must target customer values instead of
traditional asset segmentation.”

Corporate Executive Board’s (CEB), Craig Focardi, entitled: “U.S. Mortgage
Lending: Strategies to Gain Share in the New Normal”
