Newfi Lending, a technology-enabled residential mortgage lender and portfolio company of Warburg Pincus, has originated over $1 billion in loan volume. The company reached this milestone just 24 months from the time it launched lending operations in April 2015. The $1 billion in mortgage volume is a combined result of Newfi Lending’s direct-to-consumer and wholesale lending operations.
“These incredible results in such a short period of time validate our dual-channel business model,” said Newfi Lending CEO Steve Abreu. “We achieved this significant milestone despite the challenges of ramping up a new company in a limited geography. This bodes well for Newfi as we accelerate the growth of our sales organization and the expansion of our national footprint.”
Newfi Lending has experienced significant growth in 2017. The organization has now expanded operations to 9 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Oregon, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Utah, and Washington. The company has received licensing approval for 16 states and plans to operate in over 20 states by the end of 2017.
Founded in 2014 by industry veterans, Newfi Lending is a national mortgage lender reshaping the borrowing experience through a combination of proprietary technology, product innovation, and personal touch. Newfi delivers a more efficient and transparent process resulting in lower costs and higher levels of customer satisfaction and trust.
