ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The lending platform of Angel Oak Companies (“Angel Oak”), comprised of Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions, Angel Oak Home Loans, and Angel Oak Prime Bridge, is collectively set to surpass $1 billion in non-qualified mortgage originations (non-QM) by the end of this year as they break through in new markets, hire new employees and add cutting-edge portfolio products.

  • Angel Oak is on pace to exceed $1 billion of non-QM mortgage originations this year, positioning them as a clear leader in the industry.
  • Angel Oak has introduced a diverse array of innovative portfolio products, such as the 12-month bank statement program, which helps credit-worthy borrowers gain access to capital and become homeowners.
  • Angel Oak has added an additional 65 employees to their lending platforms this year, broadening their reach into Seattle, Portland, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Columbus, Las Vegas, Houston, and New Jersey.
  • A newly established correspondent lending channel will allow for even more accelerated volume growth as consumers, investors and brokers recognize the benefits of these products.

“The market’s acceptance of our non-QM products shows that the mortgage lending environment has changed. Originating over $1 billion in non-QM loans puts us at the forefront of the industry,” remarked Mike Fierman, co-CEO of Angel Oak Companies. “Clearly, investors, brokers and consumers are feeling more comfortable with these products.”

“We’ve worked really hard to develop an innovative product line that helps credit-worthy borrowers obtain financing. The fact that we are able to securitize and sell these mortgages to investors highlights the quality of our originations,” says Steven Schwalb managing partner of Angel Oak’s lending platform. “Originating $1 billion in non-QM loans is an important milestone that demonstrates the market’s confidence in these products and our work in the non-QM space.”
