Clear Capital's EVP of corporate strategy to discuss reducing bias in appraisals

As recent reports continue to shed light on the state of race-based appraisal bias among certain appraisers, industry leaders and policymakers are on the hunt for solutions to a problem that has plagued the industry. This is why HousingWire invited Kenon Chen, executive vice president, corporate strategy at Clear Capital, to HW Annual. At the conference, he will discuss appraisal bias and how appraisal modernization can help reduce potential bias while providing a better experience for borrowers and lenders.

Chen is a member of the company’s executive leadership team, leading the product management team and product strategy while designing process efficiency for business operations. Chen is also responsible for product management, data science and analytics, business intelligence, data integration and vendor management.

Chen will be hosting a session at HW Annual titled, “Reducing bias is the new gold standard for appraisals,” where he’ll explain how technology can play an important role in the appraisal process. 

In addition to Chen, the event will also feature Mitch Kider, chairman and managing partner of Weiner Brodsky Kider PC and cybersecurity expert Selim Aissi who will discuss the latest cyber threats to mortgage and real estate companies. 

Attendees will also hear from Laura Brandao, president of American Financial Resources, and HousingWire’s Lead Analyst Logan Mohtashami, along with several other industry experts. 

The event will also have sessions covering:

  • Expanding homeownership
  • How regulators are coordinating their oversight under Biden
  • Cybersecurity
  • How technology is helping to solve servicing challenges
  • Innovating in a purchase market
  • And so much more!
