Essent Guaranty Now Integrated into Compass Analytics Pricing Engine


Essent Guaranty, Inc., a nationwide provider of mortgage insurance (MI)
and Compass Analytics, a leading mortgage technology provider, announced
today that Compass has integrated its product, pricing and eligibility
engine, CompassPPE™, with Essent Guaranty's mortgage insurance platform
to enable mutual clients to obtain immediate and accurate real-time rate
quotes on loans exceeding 80% loan-to-value.

"In an era of rising origination costs, Essent constantly seeks better
ways to help our clients become more efficient, reducing time and effort
by working with best-in-class technology providers," says Bill Kaiser,
Essent's Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President. "Essent is
excited to be the first mortgage insurer to partner with Compass as this
integration realizes Essent's continuing mission to provide our clients
with best-in-class service."

Compass and Essent have worked closely together to provide the industry
a seamless loan officer experience to better support the advisory role
they play to borrowers. Nancy Pollard, CompassPPE™ Managing Director,
Pricing Technology adds, "Our innovative two-step process for providing
MI quotes gives loan officers accuracy and options without sacrificing
speed, all critical in helping loan officers deliver exemplary service
to their customers."

As soon as a loan officer runs a search for loan options through
CompassPPE™, the pricing engine interacts directly with Essent
Guaranty's platform to provide MI pricing with multiple options for
lender-paid coverage, borrower-paid single premium, and borrower-paid
monthly premium coverage. Adds Pollard, "This integration with Essent
represents an important part of the overall vision of Compass Analytics
to create a fully integrated pricing solution that automates and
streamlines all components of the pricing process from origination
through capital markets and loan sale."
