Packaging loans for sale is a CU*BASE feature used by credit unions that would like to participate or sell a portion of their loan portfolio. The initial screen from Tool #574 Package Loans to be Sold allows credit unions to specify the total investment, loan size, loan status, collateral position and type of loans to include in the package. Loans that meet the package criteria can then be marked to include in the package. Once the credit union has determined the loans to be packaged for sale to the investor, the package is created.
This project creates a new process for “packaged” loans to automatically get created in the CU*BASE Participation Lending system. Although the existing Package Loans to be Sold tool does have a link to the participation loan system, each loan must be created manually. The new automated process will eliminate this tedious manual entry.
There will be a new function “Prepare for Final Sale” added to the main Potential Loans to be Sold screen that displays when working with a created package. Once the package details are finalized, this new function will create the loans in the participation loan system and lock the package from further editing. The package is then accessed via a separate new tool #. From the new “Loan Packages Sold” tool you will be able to view package details, comments or the package summary. Packages can also be deleted via the new tool.
Status as of June 2022: Project #57751 is currently in development.
