Company Profile

Fieldstone Investment

What it does: Brokers and funds retail and wholesale residential loans originated at 83 branches around the country. Why it's growing: Fieldstone specializes in nonconforming mortgages — those that don't meet most banks' requirements because of factors such as loan size and the borrower's credit profile. They're riskier than conforming loans but produce a greater return. Postscript: Fieldstone went public in February in an IPO on Nasdaq valued at $758 million.
