  • Regions Bank has renewed its contract for MSP to service its mortgage loans, as well as its portfolio of home equity lines and loans, which are being converted to MSP from another servicing platform.
  • MSP is a comprehensive, end-to-end loan servicing system that encompasses all aspects of servicing, from loan boarding to default, for first mortgages and home equity loans.
  • Regions Bank also uses Black Knight’s Empower loan origination system to originate first mortgages and will use the Empower LOS functionality to originate home equity loans.
  • Regions is a Black Knight enterprise client, a designation for clients that use the majority of the Black Knight LoanSphere platform.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Black Knight Financial Services, Inc. (NYSE:BKFS), a leading provider of technology, data and analytics to the mortgage industry, announced today that Regions Bank, one of the nation’s top 20 banks, has renewed its agreement to use LoanSphere MSP. Regions Bank currently services its first mortgages on MSP, but will be converting home equity loans and lines from another servicing platform onto MSP to help Regions consolidate servicing onto a single unified platform.

MSP, Black Knight’s premier mortgage and home equity loan servicing system, is used to service more than 30 million active loans for many of the nation’s largest financial institutions. Scalable to any size portfolio, MSP is used by leading servicers to manage loan boarding, payment processing, escrow administration, default management and it has been enhanced to support current regulatory requirements.

Regions Bank also uses Black Knight’s LoanSphere Empower loan origination system (LOS), a fully configurable, flexible and scalable platform that is seamlessly integrated with the MSP system for end-to-end functionality from origination through servicing and default. Regions Bank will use the Empower LOS functionality to originate home equity loans, as well.  As a result of the bank’s use of these two platforms, along with additional Black Knight solutions, Regions Bank has been designated a Black Knight Enterprise Client.

“We look forward to providing an enhanced experience for our customers and increasing our operational efficiencies by servicing our home equity loans and lines on the same MSP platform as our first mortgages,” said Todd Chamberlain, executive vice president, Consumer Lending Support Services at Regions Bank. “MSP’s integration with the Empower loan origination system offers us functionality and scalability through the entire loan lifecycle as we continue to grow both our originations and servicing portfolios.”

“Regions is a valued Enterprise customer, and we appreciate the opportunity to continue providing them with premier capabilities to support their growth and serve their customers,” said Joe Nackashi, president of Black Knight’s Servicing Technologies division. “As a leading fintech, we’re extremely proud that Black Knight’s ability to service first mortgages and home equity products on a single platform will help Regions Bank effectively manage its operations.”
