Loveland, Colo.-based Kroll Factual Data, a provider of business information solutions to financial organizations, added Third Party Verification (TPV) as an expanded service -- addressing the growing need of lenders, servicers, and financial institutions to obtain an unbiased verification of information. Kroll's TPV system performs verifications of information including identity, employment, assets, tax information and any outstanding liabilities.  Since the work and accuracy of verifications performed become the responsibility of a third party -- in this case the TPV system -- Kroll said clients then have the ability to transfer risk while producing quality loans faster.
