CALGARY, May 19, 2016 /CNW/ - Zaio Corporation (TSXV: ZAO) (the "Company" or "Zaio") is pleased to announce that it has engaged Morningstar Credit Ratings to assign their residential vendor ranking for its U.S. subsidiary Valuation Vision, Inc.

"Morningstar's residential ranking is a recognized standard for measuring valuation vendor performance," said Shane Copeland, CEO of Zaio Corporation. "We believe that in today's tough regulatory environment, a Morningstar ranking will confirm our commitment to providing high-quality asset valuations for rated transactions which will allow Valuation Vision to expand further into the expanding mortgage securitization space."

Morningstar Credit Ratings' operational risk assessment for vendors establishes a new standard for vendors who want to demonstrate a commitment to quality service and their ability to meet or exceed their client's mission critical performance objectives.
