Michael S. Richardson is a 28-year veteran of mortgage lending and has held the role of president at several industry service providers and an independent mortgage company.

Michael brings a wealth of mortgage banking experience and knowledge as the managing director and will facilitate the company in meeting the unprecedented needs of our customers and the financial services sector.
“The regulatory compliance for real estate financing has become very complex, the need for directors and senior management to understand the volatile rule making environment is critical,” said Michael S. Richardson, Managing Director of Cognitive Options Group. “The growing fiduciary responsibility for leadership increases the need to engage mortgage industry experts for guidance.”
The regulatory environment in particular has created significant challenges. Adapting to the new regulatory environment require companies to rethink their servicing processes and make dynamic changes. In January, the CFPB issued eight final rules concerning mortgage markets in the United States pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) Public Law 111-203, 124 Stat. 1376 (2010) (2013 Title XIV Final Rules). The rules amend several existing regulations, including Regulation Z, X, and B. Client counterparties must comply with all new rules.
