The first two series issued were secured by mortgage loans totaling more than $71 million. Their three 2016 securitizations total $126 million.

Both deals were arranged and structured by Nomura Securities International.

“The structures we’ve created together are a significant competitive advantage and a key part of our broad capital strategy across whole loan, securitization, fund, and peer-to-peer channels,” LendingHome’s Matt Humphrey said.

The announcement closes a busy 2016 for LendingHome. In addition to the three securitizations, they launched an individual investor platform, switched to servicing loans in-house, introduced jumbo loans and grew revenue by more than 250 percent.
