Eric Rosenblatt has worked in the mortgage industry, mainly the credit side, for thirty years, most of it (since 2000) as a Vice President at Fannie Mae. He received a Ph.D. in Finance in 1994. At Fannie Mae he was known for his management of Credit Risk analytics (including credit report models), his correct call of the housing recession, and for what Fannie called Innovation: applications and models which integrated data and made credit, fraud, and home valuation decisions. One of these applications, Collateral Underwriter, is used by all lenders and appraisal management companies. Another is a credit scoring model that treats people that pay their credit card balances (transactors) differently than people that do not (revolvers). While at Fannie Mae he published 19 papers and was granted 13 patents.
