As an addition to iLien, Lien Solutions’ flagship lien management product, Portfolio Sync combines customers’ existing iLien filings with public records data into one view, providing greater visibility into one’s entire lending portfolio—and identifies associated gaps that may require risk mitigation or other actions to maintain a lender’s secured interests.“Many lenders use multiple methods to submit UCC filings, including law firms, title companies, secretary of state offices, or third-party providers,” noted Nasser Ansari, Director, Product Management, Lien Solutions. “But this fragmented approach makes it harder to maintain an accurate, holistic view of your filings and to analyze your overall lien portfolio health, much less take corrective actions if needed. Portfolio Sync mitigates the risks posed by gaps in lenders’ filing portfolios, providing a single, web-based access point to manage all of one’s filings, regardless of how or with whom they were filed.”___________________________________________________________________________ComplianceEase, a provider of automated compliance solutions to the financial services industry, announced that its ComplianceAnalyzer is now integrated with LendingPad, the cloud-based loan origination system (LOS) from WEI Technology LLC.With this integration, LendingPad users can perform real-time audits for regulatory compliance violations without leaving their LOS.

Around the Schools: Harvard Kennedy School

first_imgLast year, pirates off the coast of Somalia attacked 217 ships, hijacked 47, and snatched $60 million in ransom.Worldwide, the zone of risk from piracy is a vast 2.5 million square miles. Ships have been waylaid as far as 1,000 miles from Somalia.But ahoy: More than two dozen recommendations for slowing marine piracy appear in a policy brief released Jan. 26, based on a meeting held in December under the auspices of the World Peace Foundation as the Cambridge Coalition to Combat Piracy. Hosting the event was the Harvard Kennedy School, where the foundation’s president, Robert Rotberg, author of the brief, directs the Program on Intrastate Conflict and Conflict Resolution.Act in four broad ways, the 38 recommendations say: Discourage piracy on land, follow piracy’s illicit cash flow, make ships harder to capture, and strengthen legal responses.On land, for instance, create alternative employment for the 1,500 young men who are pirates. As for money: How about an international pact to cease paying ransoms?Making ships harder to capture could include arming them, greasing hulls to discourage boarding, or just ensuring sheer speed. Ships going faster than 15 knots are hard to attack.— Corydon Irelandlast_img read more

CUNA backs bill raising HMDA reporting requirements threshold

first_imgLegislation to raise the threshold for Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) reporting requirements for small institutions, including many credit unions, has the full support of the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). Jim Nussle, CUNA president/CEO, wrote to Rep. Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) Monday in support of his Home Mortgage Disclosure Adjustment Act.Emmer’s bill would raise the threshold that triggers HMDA reporting requirements to 100 closed-end and 300 open-end mortgages, up from the current threshold of 25 or more closed-end mortgage loans.“This would provide much needed relief, particularly to smaller credit unions, which is why we strongly support the legislation,” Nussle wrote.The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) finalized new HMDA reporting requirements in October 2015, significantly increasing the amount of data mortgage lenders will have to provide. The CFPB’s rule calls for many more data points than are required by Dodd-Frank, and the CFPB also extended these reporting requirements for home equity lines of credit. continue reading » 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
