In a pandemic-driven 2020, disruptions have made it imperative for lenders to strike a balance between leniency and stringency for borrowers in distress.
Fortunately, lenders have plenty of options at their disposal: analyzing existing portfolios to determine where workouts are required, segmenting loan books by industry to assess risk within each, assisting with accessing government lending programs like the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) forgiveness application, and networking and educational seminars to build stronger customer relationships.
In this exclusive presentation, Raja Sengupta, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Wolters Kluwer Lien Solutions discusses these potential lender-initiated actions and how they can help minimize risk.
Additionally, he highlights steps that lenders can take to identify and act on lien perfection issues. Just because a UCC was filed on a borrower, does not necessarily mean a lender has claim on the collateral. A lot can go wrong between origination and payoff and as such it is well worth your time to examine the health of your lien portfolio.
Sengupta’s presentation discusses the most common filing errors, their significance to a lender, their prevalence, and criteria lenders should use to determine which borrowers should get a workout.
