Kroll Looking To Buy Firms?
Kroll Factual Data expects to be a major acquirer this year, specifically of a front-end LOS piece, appraisal/BPO application, closing settlement services, and to form a strategic alignment with a title industry player.
"We are in a very inquisitive mode," KFD senior vice president Dave Vinson told National Mortgage News. "We've been granted the funds by our parent, Marsh Inc., to start actively looking.
"Right now we're actively looking for either a very active partner or a merger and acquisition. You'll see some large acquisitions from us this year. Between now and the end of the year, expect to hear some news from us."
