This increase can be attributed to the fact that Ocwen changed the organizational reporting of the master servicing operations to the chief investment officer from the chief servicing officer of the primary servicer operations, as well as replacing two senior managers that left the company with an internal “industry-experienced” vice president to oversee the day-to-day master servicing operations. Ocwen has also strengthened its internal control environment and reduced the number and criticality of internal audit findings.

Ocwen also continues to invest in staff, training, and technology to further develop its operations. The company’s executive and senior management appears focused on the continued improvement of Ocwen’s internal controls environment and loan servicing performance.
