Corporate Banks Can Speed Services to Customers with Oracle Cloud

Oracle has delivered two new cloud-native services that simplify the complex, fragmented processes that have hamstrung corporate banking. With Oracle Banking Corporate Lending Process Management Cloud Service and Oracle Banking Credit Facilities Process Management Cloud Service, banks can speed the completion of everyday activities, such as loan and credit processing. Built on the performance and scalability of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), the offerings help banks grow their business and deliver exceptional customer service whilst reducing operational costs.

“In the coming years, it’s estimated that corporate banks will derive up to 30%[1] of their revenue from digital channels,” said Sonny Singh, executive vice president and general manager, Oracle Financial Services. “This requires banks to accelerate automation and digitization of paper-heavy processes so they can focus on retaining and expanding customer relationships. Built on our deep industry expertise, these new cloud-native solutions provide banks a quick, componentized option to modernize loan and credit management activities.”

Process management made easier in the cloud

With the services, corporate banks can streamline operations through automated workflows with the flexibility to customize various lifecycle processes. The solutions also offer persona-specific operational dashboards to enable bankers with real-time customer insights for smarter and faster decision-making.

Oracle Banking Corporate Lending Process Management Cloud Service enables banks to meet customers’ on-demand and custom-financing needs by accelerating the loan process from initiation through to closure—all without sacrificing user experience or transparency in the application process.

Corporate credit is one of the longest processes in corporate banking—it can take months for validation. Oracle Banking Credit Facilities Process Management Cloud Service can reduce that cycle to just a few days. Banks can accelerate credit origination and servicing, pre-qualify credit lines, track exposures to customers in real-time, and mitigate business risks.

These new services follow Oracle’s recently introduced corporate banking solutions for supply chain financing, liquidity management, and virtual account management. Each solution runs on the high-performance OCI Container Engine for Kubernetes and automated with OCI Resource Manager and Terraform across multiple Oracle Cloud Regions, which means global banks benefit from the highest levels of system availability, scalability, and data security.

Why Banks Will Move Quickly to Sell Distressed Debt

Andrew Van Tuyle

Andrew Van Tuyle

LOS ANGELESApril 7, 2021PRLog — So far, the COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t spawned the waves of property distress that were initially predicted.  However, once lenders can pursue remedies, Andrew Van Tuyle, senior managing director of investments for BH Properties, expects the floodgates to open for loan sales in judicial foreclosure states and situations where bankruptcy appears imminent.

Speaking to an audience of the American Bankruptcy Institute, Van Tuyle, who oversees the Value Add and Bankruptcy divisions of the company, and is responsible for identifying potential acquisitions, stalking horse bids, debtor in possession financing, and other related opportunities, said that pressure from lenders or creditors or investors has been mitigated or delayed by all the government intervention programs.

“So debtors have been less inclined to file because of the lack of pressure, said Van Tuyle.  “When CECL [Current Expected Credit Losses] and TDR [Troubled Debt Restructuring] relief expires, borrowers will begin to experience more pressure, which should result in more bankruptcies.”

Every time it appears that there will be some activity around distressed debt in the market, a stimulus package is released, which inevitably delays transactions. When loans have traded, they’ve usually been for 90 cents on the dollar or even more. The problem is that buyers expect 60 to 70 cents on the dollar, causing gridlock in the market.

“The reality is though that so few deals are hitting the market, that bid sheets are as deep as they’ve ever been,” Van Tuyle said. “So either the loan sales aren’t trading, or a buyer is stepping up and getting the bid over 90 cents.

“Many of these lenders and special servicers aren’t staffed to take on the sheer number of loan defaults that they have. They will probably be too overwhelmed to deal with the number of problem loans they’ll face,” he continued.

In other cases, lenders don’t want to deal with the hassle or public relations fallout of foreclosures.

“We don’t think that lenders are going to want to be the big bad bank that got bailed out in the last financial crisis and is foreclosing on the poor borrower that was negatively impacted by COVID at no fault of their own,” he added.

Even beyond staffing crunches, servicers have other reasons to rid themselves of loans quicker than they did during the Global Financial Crisis (GFC).

“CMBS 2.0 also has created some changes from the GFC that will put pressure on special servicers to move quicker than they did last time instead of milking the process,” Van Tuyle says.

Add it all up, and once the government support eases up, there should be opportunities to buy, he concluded.
