No. 3 MetLife Bank pushed production up to 755 HECMs from 574, and Urban Financial Group followed with business climbing to 484 from 460.

The fifth biggest reverse mortgage lender in June was Generation Mortgage Co., where volume increased to 430 loans from 388.

Wholesale reverse mortgage production increased to 2,404 closings in June. Volume was 2,086 a month earlier and 4,623 a year earlier.
