Servicing The Servicing segment is primarily comprised of core residential mortgage servicing business. The company’s servicing clients include financial institutions in the U.S., including Federal National Mortgage Association and Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation and the Government National Mortgage Association.

Servicing involves the collection and remittance of principal and interest payments received from borrowers, the administration of mortgage escrow accounts, the collection of insurance claims, the management of loans that are delinquent or in foreclosure or bankruptcy, including making servicing advances, evaluating loans for modification and other loss mitigation activities, and foreclosure referrals and the sale of the underlying mortgaged property following foreclosure (real estate owned or REO) on behalf of investors or other servicers. Master servicing involves the collection of payments from servicers and the distribution of funds to investors in mortgage and asset-backed securities and whole loan packages. Lending In the Lending segment, the company originates and purchases conventional and government insured forward mortgage loans through the direct, wholesale and correspondent lending channels of its Homeward operations. The company also originates and purchases Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECM or reverse mortgage loans) insured by Federal Housing Authority through its Liberty Home Equity Solutions, Inc. operations.

After origination, the company packages and sells the loans in the secondary mortgage market, through government sponsored entities and Government National Mortgage Association guaranteed securitizations and whole loan transactions. The company retains the associated mortgage servicing rights.
