Street Resource Group Inc., a provider of technology and consulting services for mortgage warehouse lenders, has announced the formation of the Closing Agent Risk Committee, an industry group focused on risks associated with the loan closing process.The committee, a response to "the growing incidence of mortgage fraud and the pivotal role closing agents play in that process," stemmed from discussions at SRG's annual Warehouse Lenders Forum in New York City, where Scott Broshears of the Federal Bureau of Investigation presented mortgage fraud data, SRG said. Tom Holland, senior vice president of Regions Funding, led a discussion on closing agent risk and argued for the formation of a committee of executives from leading warehouse lenders to address the issue. Mr. Holland now heads the committee. Citing the growth of the recently formed Warehouse Information Network, SRG president Stanley Street promised that WIN will form committees on regulatory issues and industry standards and practices.
