First Internet Bank Among Top Online Mortgage Originators

First Internet Bank today announced it has been named a finalist in the 2012 Mortgage Technology Awards, sponsored by Mortgage Technology magazine. As one of three lender finalists in the Online Originator category, First Internet Bank is being recognized for its comprehensive strategy to use Web-based technologies to generate borrower leads and convert them into closed loans.

“We are honored by this recognition,” said Chairman and CEO David Becker. “Our mission is to empower consumers to manage their money more easily and make smarter financial choices. We do that by combining robust, easy-to-use tools with timeless banking principles. Our mortgage origination operation perfectly demonstrates those ideals.”

An Internet-based, FDIC-insured bank offering deposit accounts and loans nationally from a single office located in Indianapolis, First Internet Bank boasts competitive rates and fees thanks to its lower cost structure. Prospective borrowers can get up-to-the-minute rate quotes and complete an online mortgage application – and even receive a decision – in just minutes, 24/7. Highly experienced and trained sales professionals provide guidance as needed and serve as a point of contact for the customer throughout the process.
