How our Consumer Loan Review services have made a difference.

Challenge #1

Senior management wanted to ensure the organization’s consumer underwriting followed policy and procedures.

Enlighten Financial Solution

Enlighten Financial’s consumer loan review services independently reviewed and assessed the financial institution’s consumer underwriting process, reviewed the analysis, calculations and supporting materials which determined the organization’s lending decision. The process identified potential concerns with current loans, identified deficiencies in the underwriting or loan approval process, and pinpointed areas for improvement in the ongoing consumer underwriting program.

Challenge #2

A financial institution wanted to ensure their process of requesting, collecting, and underwriting necessary financial information to support consumer loan transactions was sufficient and aligned with industry best practices.

Enlighten Financial Solution

Enlighten Financial provided guidance and constructive feedback for their underwriting policies and procedures as they related to the collection and analysis of borrower financial information to support their capacity to repay the debt determination.  Enlighten also considered adherence to policy and Interagency Guidelines as it related to property valuations or other collateral to support the transaction. The client used this feedback to implement enhanced underwriting standards.
