“We at Cetip are excited to be partnered with FNC, the technology leader in the residential lending arena,” said Roberto Dagnoni, Cetip executive director. “Brazil will greatly benefit from FNC’s solutions that have proven so valuable to U.S. lenders.”
In Brazil, FNC’s technology solutions will:
• Provide Brazilian banks with a system to manage the collateral valuation process, reduce costs, expedite the lending process, and access loan level data
• Create an information hub that centralizes the various components of the mortgage process
• Become the critical link between the various trading partners in the mortgage process and between the primary and secondary markets
• Ultimately act as an essential infrastructure player for the emerging Brazilian secondary market, by providing information and tools to investors
“The partnership with Cetip places FNC at the very core of the sixth largest economy in the world, and we look forward to even more growth and success,” said Governor Phil Bryant. “We’re proud that FNC, recognized as one of the world’s top 100 financial technology companies, is a Mississippi-born, Mississippi-based company.”
