SitusAMC goes on hiring spree to boost capacity

SitusAMC is beefing up its capacity to meet the high market demand for its services. The proptech firm hired more than 1,500 employees as part of an effort to boost its origination and secondary market due diligence capacities.

According to its release, the expansion intends to "expedite the flow of loans into private-label securitizations" and address the dearth of due diligence, which was a result of record mortgage production volumes in 2020.

SitusAMC said that the additional capacity will primarily be available to clients in the form of "dedicated capacity teams, custom-built to support client-specific needs." The company's review capacity team will also support transactional or short-duration assignments.

"Our increased capacity is now poised to enable a broader pool of market participants to leverage SitusAMC's solutions, including the review of mortgage portfolios for rated securitization transactions or for acquisition of loans into investment portfolios," said Tom Britt, executive managing director and head of residential real estate at SitusAMC.
