Mr. Cooper Takes Ownership of Pacific Union Financial

Franklin AmericanOn Monday, Mr. Cooper closed on its acquisition of Pacific Union Financial LLC. As part of this deal, Mr. Cooper has taken ownership of the entire, existing Pacific Union Financial company, which has been merged into Nationstar Mortgage LLC dba Mr. Cooper.

Commenting on the acquisition, Jay Bray, Chairman and CEO of Mr. Cooper Group Inc. said, “We are pleased to finalize the acquisition of Pacific Union Financial and welcome our new team members, customers, and clients to the Mr. Cooper family. “This acquisition expands their servicing portfolio with the addition of more than 120,000 customers and increases our mortgage lending volume and capabilities."

Pacific Union LLC is an originator with a servicing portfolio of approximately $25 billion. Mr. Cooper’s integration with the Pacific Union platform will enable Mr. Cooper to expand its originations presence with delegated and non-delegated product offerings.
