Winnow helps remove uncertainty by taking the guesswork out of compliance and instantaneously identifying regulatory requirements applicable to specific institution types, products, and where those products are offered," said Chris Hilliard, Chief Operating Officer and Founding Member of Winnow Solutions, LLC. "We’re excited to partner with MBA and have them as a Winnow user. We deeply appreciate the trust they have placed in us. MBA has long been instrumental in advocating for and supporting the mortgage industry. Winnow strives for the same significance in legal and compliance research and change management."

We have found it extremely useful to get our state law questions answered, validate the information we have on file and strengthen our comment letters to regulators," said MBA’s Justin Wiseman, Associate Vice President & Managing Regulatory Counsel.
