Clarify your
         disclosure that you are "the third largest wholesale lender by
origination volume in 2020
         through June 30" by explaining the relationship between the wholesale
channel and other

distinction between your
         wholesale channel and the overall wholesale channel.

that this creates
         substantial opportunity to gain market share.

growth in the
         company's platforms implies that they are scalable. Balance disclosure
regarding

such as the considerations
         that appear in the risk factor on page 31.

facilities. Explain your

8.       Please expand the risk factor on page 52 to state explicitly the risks
associated with a
         falling interest rate environment. We note in this regard the
disclosure on page 75 of the
         impact of changes in interest rates on your business.

Platform to explain
         how the platform differs from those of your competitors and what

platform on customer
         retention and disclose the time period over which such retention has
occurred.
10.      Please disclose here the number of loans enrolled in forbearance plans
and the percentage
