CE’s Black Knight acquisition faces pushbackFederal Financial Analytics managing partner Karen Petrou has a new paper urging the FTC to block Intercontinental Exchange’s acquisition of mortgage data firm Black Knight, citing potential systemic risks. FedFin disclosed that the paper was funded by an unnamed entity “for which this transaction has raised competition concerns” but said it retained full editorial control over the work. ICE has said the deal would lower costs for lenders and improve the homebuyer’s experience. A company spokesperson said the new paper was inaccurate, adding that it was funded by competitors.
