As part of the update, the company created a new algorithm for the the tool which is now available within the latest release of CompassPoint's pool optimizer. In a statement, Black Knight said that the algorthim can “quickly and efficiently solve for the optimal combination of pools based on the company's configurations and given SIFMA [Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association] requirements, as well as credit stipulations and volume thresholds imposed by servicing buyers and the GSEs.”

“The solution helps lenders incorporate the borrower FICO score, property type, property state, and other considerations, dramatically simplifying complex best-execution analysis and helping to deliver consistent credit across key investor relationships,” Black Knight said in a statement.

“The new algorithm we've created for our pool optimizer enhancement goes beyond the complexities of solving for the best price by enabling our customers to incorporate the preferences of their investor partners with one click,” said James Baublitz, managing director of Pipeline Analytics for Black Knight Secondary Marketing Technologies. “The latest enhancement to CompassPoint represents Black Knight's continued focus on innovation for the secondary market to help market participants improve profit margins and reduce risk.”
