About Us

We’re a new reverse mortgage company, but we’re anything but new to the business. Our executives each have an average of more than 15 years in the industry. They’ve been a driving force in every transition it’s gone through—and are uniquely positioned to implement ideas to make it better.

Experience

Our management team is comprised of industry veterans. They’re the people who have been behind the market’s most innovative products: HECM Fixed, HECM 100, HECM Choice, Prime Advantage and more. Going forward, they’ll apply lessons learned to give our partners and their customers a distinct advantage.

FOCUS

Reverse Mortgage Funding LLC (RMF) is an independent, reverse-only company. We don’t have competing corporate priorities or distracting lines of business. All that we do is focused on making reverse mortgages better, and doing so in a proactive and nimble way that benefits everyone. RMF is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Reverse Mortgage Investment Trust Inc., a real estate investment trust (REIT) whose primary focus is on investing in FHA-insured reverse mortgages and reverse mortgage-backed securities. The company is headquartered in New Jersey.
