Unisource Joint Ventures Acquires MFI Data, Launches Unisource Credit

With the acquisition of MFI Data, Unisource can pair MFI’s credit reporting services with the extensive offering of title and escrow services of Unisource National Lender Services for a comprehensive customer experience that reduces costs and increases loan production for lenders.

Unisource Joint Ventures, the parent company of Unisource National Lender Services, an industry leader in national title and escrow services, announces the acquisition of MFI Data, a subsidiary of Starrex International (STX.CN) that provides credit reports to mortgage lenders, effective March 25, 2024.

With the acquisition of MFI Data, Unisource can pair MFI’s credit reporting services with the extensive offering of title and escrow services of Unisource National Lender Services for a comprehensive customer experience that reduces costs and increases loan production for lenders. The company, with its latest acquisition, will rebrand as Unisource Credit.

“We are excited to welcome MFI Data into the Unisource family. This allows us to provide bundled services so our clients can close loans faster and pay fewer fees,” says Michael Cohan, CEO of the joint entity Unisource Credit. “The recent rise in credit reporting service costs has increased our clients’ cost of producing loans. With the acquisition of MFI Data, we can contain the pricing by providing competitive fees.”
