MountainView Capital Holdings, Denver, a player in the red-hot "scratch-and-dent" market, has raised $65 million in equity capital.Led by president and chief executive officer Mike Morgan, MountainView is an investor and trader of delinquent, performing, and subperforming mortgages. It also functions as a servicing broker and offers analytics. Chris Rooker, a principal in the firm, likened the current mortgage crisis to the savings-and-loan mess of the late 1980s and early 1990s, noting, "We are seeing opportunities in the mortgage space unprecedented since the days of the Resolution Trust Corp." The RTC was a government agency that helped liquidate $500 billion in assets belonging to failed thrifts. MountainView's new investors include Union Square Partners, CLAC Industries, and MountainView management.
