"Both the housing market and economy have transformed over the past decade, but the way Americans buy and own homes has not evolved with the times," said Thomas Sponholtz, CEO of Unison. "Being named to the Deloitte Fast 500 is a great recognition of the work we are doing to bring the American dream back within reach. Unison brings technology and a culture of innovation to an industry ripe for disruption."
In order to scale investments in single family home equity, Unison has pioneered a robust quantitative approach that aligns the modern needs of both consumers and institutional investors. The company's patented Greenlight technology allows for instantaneous investment decisions based on a data-driven and backtested factor model for forecasting the price, return and volatility of most homes in America. In addition, its proprietary Equity Origination System (EOS) allows for expedited underwriting, approval and funding of deals.
Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 honors the cutting edge companies transforming the way we do business, combining innovation, entrepreneurship, and fast growth, and disrupting the technology industry.
"This year marks the 25th anniversary of Deloitte's Technology Fast 500, so we are especially pleased to announce and congratulate the 2019 winners," said Sandra Shirai, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP, and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. "It's always inspiring to see how the Fast 500 companies are transforming business and the world we live and work in."
