Independent Audit Verifies American Financial Resources’ Internal Controls and Processes

Parsippany, NJ – American Financial Resources, a full-service mortgage lender, today announced that it has successfully completed its SOC 2 Type II audit. This attestation provides evidence that American Financial Resources has a strong commitment to deliver high quality services to its clients by demonstrating they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.

SOC 2 engagements are based on the AICPA’s Trust Services Criteria.

“For the last 20 years, our industry success has been built upon the trust and confidence of our customers, clients and suppliers.” said Bill Packer, executive vice president and chief operating officer, American Financial Resources. “This attestation is independent validation and further proof of our ongoing commitment to hold ourselves to the highest of industry standards, which enable us to provide best-in-class service to all those we serve.”

“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria.
