Fannie Mae and Mastercard Partner to Streamline Mortgage Approvals with Secure Digital Verification

Fannie Mae

Fannie Mae
, the leading provider of mortgage financing in the US, has partnered with Mastercard Open Banking and Finicity, a Mastercard company, to revolutionize the mortgage application process with a secure and efficient digital verification solution. This innovative approach streamlines loan approvals, reduces paperwork, and benefits both lenders and borrowers.

Simplifying the Process for Borrowers:

Traditionally, obtaining a mortgage often involved a time-consuming and cumbersome process for borrowers. Manually collecting and submitting stacks of income documents created inefficiencies for both parties.
