Fortress Sub-Prime Lender Suspends Wholesale Originations

Sep 24 2007 | 11:47am ET

Alternative investments giant Fortress Investment Group is cutting off its sub-prime pipeline just over a year after buying sub-prime lender Nationstar Mortgage.

Nationstar suspended new loan applications from brokers as of Friday. The decision does not affect the $10 billion in sub-prime loans the company services. Also, the company said any approved applications will be honored.

Fortress bought Dallas-based Nationstar last July from homebuilder Centex Corp.
