—Nation’s leading lenders address emerging trends in mortgage fraud and property valuation in order to reduce losses and improve loan quality—

CoreLogic® (NYSE: CLGX), a leading provider of information, analytics and business services, today announced the start of the fifth CoreLogic Mortgage Fraud Consortium meeting and first-ever CoreLogic Valuation Consortium meeting. The private event, which brings together industry leaders to discuss trends and solutions in fraud and valuations, will be held today through Friday, Sept. 21 in Chicago, Ill.

The consortium members’ meeting highlights lender presentations on challenges and strategies for managing risk within loan origination, loss mitigation, REO transactions, and through effective engagement with law enforcement. Consortium members will also receive the exclusive opportunity to preview findings from the upcoming 2012 Mortgage Fraud Trends Report. CoreLogic screens 80 percent of all U.S. mortgage originations for fraud and calculates over 1 billion residential property valuations each month.

Consortium meeting keynote speakers are Amy Heinz, director of the Mortgage Fraud Program for Fannie Mae, and Dr. Alfred Pollard, chief general counsel for the Federal Housing Finance Agency. Featured presenters include members of the FBI’s Chicago-based Bank Fraud Squad, Richard L. Borges, president-elect of the Appraisal Institute and Don Kelly, the executive director of Real Estate Valuation Advocacy Association.

The inaugural CoreLogic Valuation Consortium will highlight the latest information on government oversight and regulatory changes, as well as new methods to ensure accurate valuations and improve loan quality.Consortium members will benefit from structured discussion of best practices, exploration of new risk tools and resources, and networking with the other mortgage fraud and property valuation experts.

“Consortium membership and participation in consortium meetings is a critical investment of time that can help lenders better uncover the latest trends in risk management and collaborate to find real solutions to industry problems,” said Susan Allen, vice president of collateral solutions for CoreLogic. “CoreLogic created the Valuation Members’ Consortium this year in response to lender requests for a deeper and more integrated approach to property risk management. Our industry must take steps to adapt as both valuation and fraud risk continue to evolve and migrate in response to lenders and servicers managing heavy volumes of loans as well as shifting compliance requirements. The Consortium Members’ Meeting provides an invaluable opportunity for dialogue among industry experts that can pave the way forward for fraud risk management and more secure lending and servicing processes.”

Several CoreLogic executives will present at the meeting, including Susan Allen, Senior Vice President of Real Estate and Financial Services Ben Graboske, Chief Economist Mark Fleming, Vice President of Collateral Strategy Jacqueline Doty as well as Fraud Consultant Frank McKenna.
