Posted on April 8, 2010

ALLEN, Texas, April 8, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Halo Portfolio Advisors, LLC, a subsidiary of Halo Companies, Inc. (OTCBB:HALN), announced today that it signed an agreement with a mortgage asset management fund to take advantage of the unique workout program that Halo provides. The agreement was constructed for the purpose of improving performance of the fund. “We are excited about the opportunity this provides Halo to demonstrate our capabilities as a consumer financial solutions provider,” states Scott McGuane, president of Halo Portfolio Advisors, LLC. “Our client recognized the uniqueness and effectiveness of our approach. We will enable them to grow through seamless integration and a comprehensive strategy as they are continuing to acquire distressed assets.”

The new agreement allows Halo to improve the portfolio performance of the hedge fund operating in the distressed mortgage industry. This is achieved by applying Halo’s creative home retention strategies. Halo will attempt to work out the fund’s non-performing loans by utilizing their complete suite of consumer financial products including loan modification, short sales services, refinancing, credit repair, and unsecured debt settlement. In addition, Halo’s in-house technology team will provide a proprietary customized software platform that allows for a higher level of efficiency and communication.

The current economic environment finds lenders drowning in an overflow of distressed assets. Halo recognizes the cause behind a typical troubled asset is often not one, but several contributing factors. When a loan is underperforming, it may be due to other outside influences of financial stress, such as a high unsecured debt load held by the consumer.

Halo Portfolio Advisors’ workout program allows for the management of a diverse portfolio of loans. Halo’s technology systems are bundled with transparency, accountability, efficiency, speed, and flexibility.
