Compliance Solutions expert discusses the industry’s embrace of digital lending on industry podcast
BALTIMORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#WoltersKluwer—Wolters Kluwer Compliance Solutions continues to build out its thought leadership efforts, sharing important insights on banks’ increasing adoption of digital lending capabilities in an environment that is marked by inherent tensions between embracing advanced technologies and keeping pace with regulations. The topics formed the basis of a recent HousingWire News podcast with Simon Moir, Vice President, Banking Compliance Solutions.
Commenting on the essential advantages that digital lending brings to the industry and why Wolters Kluwer has invested considerable resources in this technology—including its major acquisitions of eOriginal and IDS in the past several years—Moir pointed to a key, overriding benefit for lenders: “Our focus was about the most important document in the closing package, which is the promissory note, and that was the focus of the digital ecosystem that we created.”
“E-signature is a vital front-end component of a digital lending process,” he continued. “However, the greatest value is provided by a robust eVault, one that can manage all asset classes through funding, whole loan sale, and collateralization. It is critical to do it right to ensure the electronic promissory note (eNote) is both legal and enforceable.”
Moir also spoke on the growing role of artificial intelligence and where it’s being utilized in the lending industry right now: “Underwriting, and any process that is being highly repeated, and that handles large amounts of data in our traditional systems, is where AI would be best applied in the industry.”
