The affirmed ratings of Mr. Cooper is reflective of the company’s focus on operational enhancements, customer experience as well as experienced senior management, Fitch said in a statement. Given that a company’s financial status is a component of Fitch’s servicer rating analysis, the ratings agency’s financial institutions reviewed Mr. Cooper’s financial statements for internal assessment. However, the release stated, “Fitch does not publicly rate the credit and financial strength of Mr. Cooper.”The ratings were based on: —U.S. residential primary servicer rating for subprime product at ‘RPS2-‘—U.S. residential primary servicer rating for special servicing at ‘RSS2-‘—U.S. residential primary servicer rating for alt-a product at’RPS2-‘—U.S. residential primary servicer rating for master servicing at ‘RSM2+’Mr. Cooper completed a merger with WMIH Corp.(Washington Mutual, Inc.) on July 31, 2018, acquiring ownership from Fortress Investment Group, followed by an acquisition of the loan origination and servicing business of Pacific Union Financial with a scheduled closing in first-quarter 2019, bringing in $25 billion of loan servicing and an average annual loan origination production of over $10 billion, consisting of correspondent and warehouse channels.The affirmed ratings also elucidate on the company’s ‘Project Titan’ initiative to better align loan originations and servicing process flows and reduce cost. The company’s three lines of risk management framework across the loan servicing enterprise comprise continuous risk control self-assessment, governance and oversight functions, and internal audit. Internal audit results were satisfactory overall; however, Fitch analysts noted a continued opportunity for improvement in certain areas, which was taken into account in the rating assessment.There were no instances of material noncompliance identified in the Reg AB report for the year ended December 31, 2017.  Mr. Cooper’s customer service calls are routinely monitored for quality and compliance and the company engages a third party to conduct extensive customer feedback surveys to measure borrower satisfaction scores. Mr. Cooper’s call center performance metrics compare favorably with their industry peers, the ratings indicated. As of September 30, 2018, Nationstar serviced approximately 2.9 million loans with an unpaid principal balance (UPB) of $478 billion and was master servicer on 275,000 loans with an unpaid principal balance of $49.1 billion.

Chelsea v Real Madrid

first_imgChelsea manager Jose Mourinho will come up against Real Madrid just two month after leaving the Spanish club as the two sides clash in the final of the International Champions Cup on Wednesday.The Portuguese tactician departed the Bernabeu in June to take up the manager’s position at Stamford Bridge for a second time, and will now confront his former employers in a highly anticipated pre-season friendly in the United States.Much of the pre-match hype has revolved around the recent comments made by Mourinho regarding compatriot and Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, where the boss claimed ‘there is only one Ronaldo,’ referring to the former Brazil international striker who Mourinho coached as an assistant during the pair’s time at Barcelona.That jibe now appears to have upped the stakes of what is scheduled as a friendly, leaving pride on the line in what promises to be a thrilling affair.New Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti will himself be looking to pull one over his old club, having worked at the Blues between 2009 and 2011, while he will also be hoping to continue their unbeaten run in pre-season ahead of his debut campaign with the Galacticos.last_img read more

Kemba Walker free agency rumors: Guard receives max contract from Celtics

first_img NBA free agency rumors: Hornets to acquire Terry Rozier in sign-and-trade Free agent Kemba Walker has agreed to sign a four-year, $141M maximum contract to join the Boston Celtics, Excel Sports agent Jeff Schwartz tells ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 30, 2019Even though Walker insisted his top choice was to stay with the team that selected him ninth overall in the 2011 draft, he couldn’t pass up the Celtics’ offer after a tough couple of years that saw the Hornets miss the playoffs three consecutive seasons.According to an earlier report from The Athletic, which cited unidentified league sources, Walker and Charlotte experienced “sizable gaps and a stalemate” in their contract discussions. Walker averaged a career-high 25.6 points, along with 5.9 assists for Charlotte last season. He shot 43.4 percent from the field and 35.6 percent from 3-point range.The Hornets will attempt to replace Walker with Terry Rozier, who it reportedly acquired in a sign-and-trade with Boston on Sunday.

MLB trade rumors: Potential sleeper moves Astros, Yankees, Phillies could make to bolster rotations

first_imgThe first name that springs to mind for help would be Jon Gray of the Rockies. There’s a couple of reasons for that. For one, he is a predominantly four-seam fastball/slider pitcher, which Houston loves, and the Astros already considered drafting him back in 2013 when they passed over him and Kris Bryant to take Mark Appel. Gray hasn’t been great, but get him to the Astros and Brent Strom and out of Coors Field and who knows what will happen. It should be noted, Gray is not available just yet, but if the Rockies continue to struggle, he very well could be.Jeff Samardzija is along the same line as Gray. He’s a four-seam fastball/slider pitcher (or at least those are his most effective pitches) and he has had to pitch in a division with some tough ballparks in Colorado and Arizona. Now, does Houston want to pay another $25 million on an older pitcher? Maybe not. But with only three pitchers locked up for the rotation next season, Houston will likely want to add a player with team control and Samardzija might be a good bridge man for a year. Houston has had interest in him in a trade in the past, as well.Phillies: Steven Matz, Mets; Marco Gonzales, MarinersThe Phillies need a lefty in their rotation — desperately. It’s why they had interest in Dallas Keuchel before the year and it’s also why they have been looking at Mike Minor of the Rangers. While their pitchers have different arsenals, all of them are right-handed, including the top three rotation of Aaron Nola, Jake Arrieta and Zach Eflin. The team has to pick up a lefty for a potential playoff run and Steven Matz is the odd man out right now in New York. He is also controllable with two years of arbitration left and has great stuff too, so he’s definitely appealing. The only question is whether the Mets would trade him to a division rival? We all know who is going to be traded at the July 31 deadline. You could write that yourselves. Madison Bumgarner, Marcus Stroman and Matthew Boyd are all likely to move and you’ve read just about all you can take on those guys.But, what about the pitchers who are going to surprise you? Because let’s be honest, there is a surprise move every year. In 2015 the Astros got Mike Fiers in the Carlos Gomez deal, in 2018, the Yankees picked up Lance Lynn and even this year Andrew Cashner has already been dealt to the Red Sox. MLB trade rumors: Here’s who the Yankees could want from teams targeting Clint Frazier MLB trade rumors: What could Yankees, Astros, Padres offer for Noah Syndergaard? Marco Gonzales probably won’t get dealt, but if the Mariners want to get a good return with a trade at the deadline, he could be the player to get it for them. He still has one year left on his pre-arbitration deal and three years of arbitration remaining. While he hasn’t been fantastic, that would definitely be enough to send some talent back Seattle’s way. He’s also left-handed and has been pretty good over the last two years. If the Mariners truly want to blow it up, then the Phillies could come calling, especially considering the two teams have a good working relationship after they made a big deal involving Jean Segura this offseason.Yankees: Aaron Sanchez, Blue Jays; Jason Vargas, MetsAaron Sanchez is the definition of a buy-low candidate, but that’s what general manager Brian Cashman loves right now. The team doesn’t want to take on big money and Sanchez is certainly not making that. He has not been good this year, though, which makes it a leap of faith to acquire him, but he has fantastic stuff and has shown flashes of great this season and was pretty good recently at Yankee Stadium. Now, it might be more of a question of if Toronto even wants to deal him because of how little value it might get for him.Jason Vargas isn’t a popular name, but he’s shown he can be a very good innings eater and will give quality starts here and there. It wouldn’t be a popular move if the Yankees pulled it off, but it would give New York someone it could pitch for a second half and possibly ease the wait for Luis Severino to return — if he does return. He could also eat up some innings late in the season while the team waits for the playoffs, which could take some burden off of Masahiro Tanaka and CC Sabathia, who need to be 100 percent in the playoffs. MLB trade rumors: What could it take to land Madison Bumgarner? These weren’t widely talked about moves before they happened, but they did have influences on teams down the road. So who could those players be this year? We took a few of these out of left field, but, while they would be surprising, it wouldn’t surprise us if they happened.Potential sleeper moves Astros, Yankees, Phillies could make to bolster rotationsAstros: Jon Gray, Rockies; Jeff Samardzija, GiantsThe Astros are desperate for help in their starting rotation as is evident in the team’s last two pitching outings. Add that to Brad Peacock’s questionable health, Josh James and Collin McHugh’s limited current pitch counts and the team’s disappointment with their minor-league pitchers and Houston will almost undoubtedly look outside the organization for assistance.
