About the MBA/STRATMOR Peer Group Program • PROGRAM OBJECTIVES: • To create a means for participating mortgage banking companies to review their financial results in relation to their peers at semi-annual intervals. • To offer timely data that will allow quick responses to changing business environments. • To analyze the factors that drive mortgage business performance. • To provide participants with a forum to discuss financial results through roundtable meetings at an off-site location. • To offer maximum comparative analysis through the following peer groups: • Non-prime lenders and servicers (sample size – 18). • Four prime peer groups: Megalenders; Large lenders; Small/medium sized lenders and thrift institutions.
