Missouri delivers more than you expect. In Missouri, you’ll find more of everything. More global industries. More diverse assets. More affordability. All month long, Missouri Partnership is celebrating “more” by taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from 2020. Today, we’re checking out Veteran’s United Home Loans investment in Missouri.

Throughout the year, Veteran’s United Home Loans was rapidly growing and adding jobs all across Missouri. Veterans United Home Loans (VU) is the nation’s leading full-service VA mortgage lender. The company is headquartered in Columbia, Missouri. That’s where VU is planning its biggest expansion in the state, adding more than 500 new jobs.

In addition to growing its headquarters operation in Columbia, the company is expanding its reach with two additional offices in Missouri. St. Louis is home to one of those new offices. VU recognized an untapped workforce in the region, which led them to select St. Louis. At least 80 jobs are expected at this new location, and hiring is currently underway.
