At the helm of loanDepot is Chairman and CEO Anthony Hsieh, a lending industry veteran known for his integrity and innovation. Hsieh, who founded loanDepot after playing a critical role in developing LoansDirect.com, E*TRADE Mortgage, and LendingTree, attracted a talented and experienced leadership team to create an efficient, legacy-free lending platform that would re-instill confidence and trust in a highly fragmented market.
Since launching in 2010, loanDepot has funded more than $90 billion in home, personal and home equity loans. In just a few short years, loanDepot is now the nation's fifth largest retail mortgage originator, and the second largest nonbank consumer lender. Committed to leading the lending industry into the next generation of modern lending, the company continues to make significant reinvestments into its proprietary technology and marketing platform, credit and risk models, and dynamic product delivery systems to empower consumers with access to credit.
Our consistently strong balance sheet, free cash flow and revenue and market share growth demonstrate the inherent structural advantages of our scalable platform. Positioned for continued growth as a diversified nonbank financial services company, we will leverage our strength and entrepreneurial spirit to aggressively diversify our origination flow as a natural extension of who we are: a complete consumer lender that is diversified and well-capitalized to grow market share and remain sustainable in all market conditions.
In 2015, loanDepot expanded into marketplace lending to create a new category of consumer lending with mortgage at its foundation. With the launch of our first personal loan products, we remain a trusted lending source for consumers as they turn away from national bank brands to non-mortgage personal loans.
