Lending by South Korean banks rose by nearly 1.4 trillion won ($1.1 billion) on Tuesday alone when two-day retail underwriting for initial shares of LG Energy Solution began.

According to Korea’s top five commercial lenders – KB Kookmin Bank, Shinhan, Hana, Woori and NH Nonghyup – on Wednesday, their loan balances reached 140.66 trillion won on Tuesday, adding 1.37 trillion won from the previous day. .

The explosive shift towards rapid individual borrowing was sparked by the astronomical institutional bids of $13 trillion for initial shares in the world’s second-largest electric vehicle battery maker.

Retail underwriting which closed on Wednesday also raised the bar for a Korean IPO, attracting deposits worth 114.1 trillion won.

Bank lending has been flat this year as the finance authority called on local lenders to keep annual household debt growth around 4%, tighter than last year’s 5%.

But the cap has swung due to a flood of requests, mostly through overdraft accounts that can be withdrawn immediately.

On Tuesday, the overdraft account balance reached 50.7 trillion won, adding 1.37 trillion won from the previous day. In addition, 1,557 overdrawn accounts were opened on Tuesday, up 52% ​​from 1,026 a week ago.

A minimum of 1.5 million won is required to subscribe for 10 shares of LG Energy Solution and individuals have reportedly rushed to withdraw from overdrawn accounts to make the offers, an unnamed commercial lender official said.

Funds on demand from banks also went to the mega IPO.

A commercial bank’s demand deposit fell to 173.02 trillion won on Tuesday from 174.3 trillion won the day before.

UAB Students Eligible for $300 Loans https://ipdaonline.org/uab-students-eligible-for-300-loans/ Fri, 14 Jan 2022 21:57:00 +0000 https://ipdaonline.org/uab-students-eligible-for-300-loans/ BIRMINGHAM, Ala.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) – Car repairs, job loss or medical expenses. We’ve all been in trouble at some point and needed money fast. Now, UAB students can get $300 loans from the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Regions Institute for Financial Education, or RIFE.

Money is available in as little as 24 hours and no interest is charged if repaid within 90 days.

“Your car breaks down on the way to school, so you miss class,” said Stephanie Yates, Ph.D., director of the institute and creator of the program. “You can’t get to work, so you miss shifts and all of a sudden you can’t pay rent. Everything adds up. We thought, “If we could find a way to help a student get this tire, it would prevent all these other things.”

Yates spoke with the Dean of the Collat ​​School of Business, Eric Jack, Ph.D., and he suggested a source of funds: a $25,000 prize pool originally created to help students after the killer tornadoes of 2011. Yates students helped create the rules for the microloan program:

  • Give the money to those who need it most,
  • Maintain a reserve so that emergency needs can always be met, and
  • Have the possibility of making non-emergency loans.

Priority is given to real emergencies, in particular:

  • loss of income
  • transportation problems
  • housing problems or difficult living situations
  • medical fees

“It’s very helpful for students who have a gap between the start of the semester and when their financial aid arrives,” Yates said. “By far the majority of loans are repaid within 90 days and very few students have paid interest. It’s not a trap.

The interest rate is 6%, starting on day 91. In fact, the goal is to offer an alternative to payday loans, title loans and pawnbrokers.

Members of the student-run Green & Gold Fund have written an investment policy to help the fund’s capital grow while protecting it. They also sit on the loan committee (all identifying information about other students is removed).

The goal is to “continue to have this resource for a long time to come,” said Jackie Dang, a finance major and member of the Green & Gold Fund who is RIFE’s portfolio manager. “It has been an enriching experience to know that I am part of an organization that does everything possible to help UAB students.”

Any UAB student can apply for a microcredit. Yates said, “We strive to make it as quick and painless as possible.”

An Air Force member and his wife lied about owning at least five struggling small businesses to secure $5.1 million in COVID-19 loans during the pandemic, federal officials in Virginia have said.

They managed to steal $1.4 million from the government, according to prosecutors.

Malik Mitchum, 26, and Jenna Mitchum, 25, both pleaded guilty on January 12 to submitting multiple false loan applications to acquire the money, a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office said the same day. for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Prosecutors say the couple, who lived in Hampton, did not own a struggling business because “in reality” Malik Mitchum was a young airman and his wife was unemployed. Hampton is 17 miles north of Norfolk, where Naval Station Norfolk is located.

“Mr. Mitchum has accepted responsibility for his errant actions and has expressed remorse for the events that led to him and his wife being sued in federal court,” the couple’s attorney, James Broccoletti, told McClatchy News in a press release.

They spent the money they obtained illegally on “luxury” items, such as a $38,743 Rolex watch, according to the press release. As a result, they face a maximum of 30 years in prison.

They intended to secure more than $5.1 million in loans for small business owners whose expenses have been affected by the pandemic, officials said.

In March 2020, the same month the coronavirus pandemic was declared, and through May 2021, the husband and wife submitted at least 19 false claims “for pandemic-related loan benefits that contained false statements and false statements about their income, employment and claimed business entities,” prosecutors said.

The couple “formed fictitious business entities,” naming them “Alpha 2 Omega Logistics, Southern by the Belle, A20 Auto Brokers, Pure Pressure and Day and Night Trucking,” according to court documents obtained by McClatchy News.

“All of this was used to fraudulently apply for loans under the ‘Economic Disaster Loan Program and Paycheck Protection Program.’

Malik and Jenna Mitchum’s sentencing date is July 29, prosecutors said.

“Actual sentences for federal crimes are generally lower than maximum sentences,” the press release said.

The court could impose “monetary penalties” alongside restitution, according to court documents.

Regarding the $1.4 million, Broccoletti said Malik Mitchum has “already taken steps to repay the full amount and is dedicated to completing that task.”

Uncontrolled ambition, lax regulations: the genesis of predatory digital lenders in Nigeria https://ipdaonline.org/uncontrolled-ambition-lax-regulations-the-genesis-of-predatory-digital-lenders-in-nigeria/ Tue, 11 Jan 2022 08:12:34 +0000 https://ipdaonline.org/uncontrolled-ambition-lax-regulations-the-genesis-of-predatory-digital-lenders-in-nigeria/ Ebuka Anyaeji thought he had seen it all, so when he first received a threat message that he was guarantor of a runaway debtor, he dismissed it as a joke, a message sent by an angry creditor to the wrong phone number.

Ebuka Anyaeji thought he had seen it all, so when he first received a threat message that he was guarantor of a runaway debtor, he dismissed it as a joke, a message sent by an angry creditor to the wrong phone number. But the messages (WhatsApp and SMS) kept coming; then Anyaeji found out that his friends also received the same.

Later, the harassment shifted from messages to phone calls – real-time, pre-recorded calls. The content of the messages changed from simply informing him that someone owed the creditor money to threatening to embarrass him if he did not charge the defaulting debtor in question.

“The messages usually followed this line: ‘This person owes us money, and you are one of their guarantors. Tell him to pay or we’ll embarrass you both, ”Anyaeji told TechCabal. “In some cases they mentioned the amount of money owed, which was surprisingly low – around 10,000 ($ 17.8) or 30,000 ($ 53.6) – or in other cases they simply called it the debtor of a chronic debtor or of a fraudulent individual. “

Of the many messages he received, there was only one occasion when he got to know the debtor referred to: a college friend. What did he do about this case? He didn’t bother to inform the person, as they weren’t close.

A screenshot of Anyaeji’s Whatsapp chat.

For Anyaeji, who sometimes gives witty replies to the senders of these messages just for fun, he wonders why the debt collection practices of digital lenders like Soko Loan, LCash, 9Jacash among others use shame tactics and , more importantly, if this new trend would continue unchecked.

it was not always like this

There is no doubt that Africans have adopted lending through digital lending apps. They are discreet, quick to access and do not require any warranty. But it also means that lenders who use users’ repayment habits to assess their creditworthiness – and never physically meet their customers – often struggle to repay their loan.

But this has not always been the case in Nigeria. The loans were mainly issued by traditional banks, which rarely granted loans without the backing of guarantees or guarantors.

In the event of a default, before the collateral of a defaulting debtor is seized, a number of controls are put in place. First, loans are only granted after credit checks have been completed and the customer relationship manager can vouch for a potential borrower. When a borrower defaults, the customer relationship manager first contacts the lender to find out the reason, and even goes to confirm. Guarantors and arbitrators are also contacted, if necessary.

“As long as both sides are open and transparent, the penalties don’t come yet. Until they are past due, which is usually over 90 days, ”a Nigerian bank employee told TechCabal, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Often times, while the account executive is following up on the defaulting customer, the monitoring team and even bank managers can also check on the defaulting customer. Conversations typically revolve around checking the customer’s repayment capacity, restructuring the loan to extend the term, and possibly removing penalty charges.

If all efforts to reach a reasonable agreement or collect the debt fail, the bank reverts to possession of the item (usually a house or car) used as collateral. This is a last resort that the bank is unwilling to exercise, another banker told TechCabal. “We hate having to own people’s land or houses, which serve as collateral; the bank is not in real estate, ”he said.

How did loan applications come into play?

For a long time, Nigerian banks preferred to lend to businesses and not to individuals. This has led to the rise of new lenders like Carbon (formerly Paylater), Renmoney and Branch who have filled the void by offering fast loans through smartphone apps.

Credit risk analyst Temi Sodipo recalls the early days when there were only a few large Nigerian digital lenders like Renmoney and Paylater. But, over the years, new digital lenders have popped up on different streets. People were skeptical at first, but over time consumer confidence has grown.

“I remember at the end of 2017, when we disbursed 1 billion yen ($ 1.8 million) in loans at Renmoney, we threw a party to celebrate. At the start of 2019, when we issued 4 billion yen ($ 7.3 million) loans, it was just a normal month, ”he said.

With the arrival of more digital lenders in the space, Sodipo believes that despite the fact that many claim to include more people financially, most digital lenders serve the same group of people as the conditions for access to loans are similar. Requirements include a six-month bank statement, verifiable government ID, letter of employment, or business email verification.

He thinks this created an avenue for a few ambitious players who wanted market share to become lax with their rules. Some digital lenders have even started giving loans to people with low ratings on the credit bureau, a clear red flag.

“It’s no wonder they are turning to desperate debt collection measures as they face a high default rate. It’s just bad underwriting and not paying attention to the basics of credit risk, ”Sodipo said.

Commercial banks have also started offering instant loans.

By 2020, at least half of Nigeria’s 22 existing commercial banks began offering unsecured instant loan products, which was unheard of years ago. What was the driving force behind this movement? A new directive from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

In July 2019, the CBN announced an increase in the minimum loan-to-deposit ratio (LDR) required of commercial banks to 60%, from 57.64%. At the end of September, she further increased the LDR to 65%. LDR stipulates the volume of loans that a bank must grant as a percentage of its total deposit. In the case of a 65% LDR, this meant that if, for example, a bank had 100 billion euros in customer deposits, it had to have at least 65 billion euros issued in the form of loans. The increase was made to encourage commercial banks to issue more loans to individuals and businesses in order to stimulate the economy.

To avoid the penalties associated with non-compliance with the LDR, these commercial banks began to offer instant loan products without collateral, with a risk of high default rate. When debtors defaulted, banks, however, unlike digital lenders, responded to defaults differently.

A source close to the incident told TechCabal that, unlike digital lenders, these large commercial banks can afford to introduce these types of loans and incur a loss, as they make tens and hundreds of billions. naira of profit.

In addition to being able to absorb the loss, the CBN issued a directive — the Global Standing Instructions (GSI) policy — which gave banks the right to deduct the amount owed from the bank account of defaulting debtors in others. banks, to reduce the amount of non-performing loans, a measure that reduced the risk of defaulting customers while having money with other banks.

Options available for digital lenders

Currently, digital lenders do not have the right to debit defaulting debtors’ accounts at other banks through GSI. But do these methods work?

Julian Flosbach, CEO of BFree, an ethical debt collection company, believes they do if they consider why customers default as well as their current financial situation. According to Flosbach, the majority of borrowers default because they lose their jobs, their business goes bankrupt, or because of health emergencies that affect clients’ affordability. He believes that assessing a client’s new financial capabilities and offering new reimbursement plans through convenient communication channels can then dramatically increase reimbursement rates for those clients.

An employee at a digital loan company explained that sometimes reporting to the credit bureau can be effective. She cited the case of a defaulting debtor whose visa application was refused because he did not repay his loan for more than a year. Credit checks are a prerequisite for issuing visas in some countries.

She also affirms Sodipo’s view of an influx of lenders with lax rules saying, “It is usually companies not registered with the credit bureau that use unethical debt collection practices.”

Slow and steady don’t win this race

It’s clear that digital lenders involved in unethical debt collection practices do so because of their unchecked ambition and the convenience of operating outside the law.

Fortunately, a number of governing bodies are starting to do something about these digital lenders. In August 2021, the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) fined N 10 million ($ 18,000) (a questionable small amount) on Soko Lending Company, one of the digital lenders. who repeatedly contacted Anyaeji.

A few months later, in October, Google removed a number of predatory lending apps from its Play Store for violating its policies. Despite these actions, the pace of response from Nigerian regulators is slow compared to Kenya, where in December a new law was put in place to curb the excesses of digital lenders.

If victims like Anyaeji and her friends were ever to be immune to the disruption and intimidation of these predatory digital lenders, Nigerian regulators should step up the pace of their response.

  • The latest rate on an ARM 7/1 is 3.633 ⇑
  • The latest rate on a 10/1 ARM is 3.976%. ??

Money’s daily mortgage rates reflect what a borrower with a 20% down payment and a 700 credit score – roughly the national average – could pay if they applied for a home loan right now. Daily rates are based on the average rate of 8,000 lenders offered to applicants on the previous business day. Freddie Mac’s weekly rates will generally be lower because they measure the rates offered to borrowers with a higher credit rating.

  • The 15-year rate is 2.712%.
  • It’s a day infold by 0.101 percentage point.
  • It’s a month infold by 0.124 percentage points.

The advantage of a 15-year fixed rate mortgage over a 30-year mortgage is that the interest rate will be lower, so you won’t pay as much over the life of the loan. The trade-off is that the short amortization period also means that the monthly payments will be higher than those of an equivalent long-term loan.

For borrowers who don’t plan on staying in the home for the long term, an adjustable rate mortgage might be a good option.

Where Are Mortgage Rates Going This Year?

Mortgage rates fell through 2020. Millions of homeowners responded to low mortgage rates by refinancing existing loans and taking out new ones. Many people have bought homes that they might not have been able to afford if the rates were higher. In January 2021, rates briefly fell to all-time low levels, but edged up slightly for the rest of the year.

Looking ahead, experts believe interest rates will rise further in 2022, but also modestly. Factors that could affect rates include continued economic improvement and more labor market gains. The Federal Reserve has also started cutting back on mortgage-backed securities purchases and announced that it plans to hike the federal funds rate three times in 2022 to fight rising inflation.

While mortgage rates are likely to rise, experts say the increase won’t happen overnight, and it won’t be a dramatic jump. Rates are expected to stay near their historically low levels throughout the first half of the year, rising slightly later in the year. Even with rates rising, this will still be a good time to finance a new home or refinance a mortgage.

Factors that influence mortgage rates include:

  • The Federal Reserve. The Fed took swift action when the pandemic hit the United States in March 2020. The Fed announced plans to move money through the economy by lowering the Federal Fund’s short-term interest rate between 0% and 0.25%, which is as low as they go. The central bank has also pledged to buy mortgage-backed securities and treasury bills, supporting the housing finance market, but started curtailing those purchases in November.
  • The 10-year Treasury note. Mortgage rates move at the same pace as the yields on 10-year government treasury bills. Yields fell below 1% for the first time in March 2020 and have risen since then. On average, there is typically a 1.8 point “spread” between Treasury yields and benchmark mortgage rates.
  • The economy in the broad sense. Unemployment rates and changes in gross domestic product are important indicators of the overall health of the economy. When employment and GDP growth are low, it means the economy is weak, which can lower interest rates. Thanks to the pandemic, unemployment levels reached record levels early last year and have yet to recover. GDP has also been affected, and although it has rebounded somewhat, there is still a lot of room for improvement.

Tips for getting the lowest mortgage rate possible

There is no universal mortgage rate that all borrowers receive. Qualifying for the lowest mortgage rates takes a bit of work and will depend on both personal financial factors and market conditions.

Check your credit score and your credit report. Mistakes or other red flags can lower your credit score. The borrowers with the highest credit scores will get the best rates, so it’s essential to check your credit report before you begin the home search process. Taking action to correct mistakes will help increase your score. If you have high credit card balances, paying them off can also give you a quick boost.

Save money for a large down payment. This will lower your loan-to-value ratio, which means how much of the home’s price the lender has to finance. A lower LTV usually results in a lower mortgage rate. Lenders also like to see money that has been saved in an account for at least 60 days. It tells the lender that you have the money to finance the purchase of the house.

Shop around for the best rate. Don’t settle for the first interest rate a lender offers you. Check with at least three different lenders to see who is offering the lowest interest rate. Also consider the different types of lenders, such as credit unions and online lenders, in addition to traditional banks.

As well. take the time to learn about the different types of loans. While the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is the most common type of mortgage, consider a shorter-term loan such as a 15-year loan or an adjustable rate mortgage. These types of loans often have a lower rate than a conventional 30-year mortgage. Compare the costs of everyone to see which one best suits your needs and your financial situation. Government loans – such as those backed by the Federal Housing Authority, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Department of Agriculture – may be more affordable options for those who qualify.

Finally, lock in your rate. Locking in your rate once you find the right rate, the right loan product, and the lender will help ensure that your mortgage rate does not increase until the loan closes.

Homeownership has long been part of the American dream. Whether it’s your generation, your grandparents, or your great-great-grandparents, most people equate the idea of ​​owning a home with getting the right kind of home. success. After all, owning a property can help you build wealth, give you access to equity, and provide something tangible to pass down from generation to generation.

Better, an online lender and homeownership platform with a free mortgage calculator, has compiled a list of 15 events and milestones in the history of the U.S. mortgage system, using information from articles from press, encyclopedias and historical literature.

While the idea of ​​homeownership is not new, mortgages, the tool many people use to reach this milestone, are a relatively new concept. In fact, the ability to borrow money to buy a house has only been around for a few hundred years. And mortgages, as we know them, have been around even less than that.

The first real mortgages in America were not issued until the late 1700s, after the formation of the first commercial bank. In the late 1800s, banking and mortgages were common, but still different from the mortgages we see today. At that time, lump sum payments were common and the mortgage terms offered by lenders were much shorter than expected, making it difficult for buyers to use them or even qualify.

Events of the past 100 years have had an even greater impact on mortgage loan formation. The introduction of new laws, along with massive economic changes – and other events, like questionable lending practices – have all played a role in refining the mortgage lending process. But what exactly are the events that have played a role in the history of American mortgages? And how did they help shape mortgages to become what we know today?

WHEN V. Rajapandian was sacked from his job at a heat treatment plant in India, the reason had nothing to do with performance or declining income. Instead, her boss offered a Explanation: After Rajapandian defaulted on a loan from a mobile app, recovery agents demanded that the factory pay on his behalf.

“I lost my job because of them,” Rajapandian said of CASHe, the app he used to get a $ 132 loan. “I constantly live with the fear that they will stalk and harass me.”

As digital loans explode in India and other developing economies, the ordeal of the Rajapandian has become increasingly common. During the pandemic, apps promising quick cash have mushroomed. Many are capitalizing on borrowers’ lack of financial literacy, charging interest rates as high as 500% annualized and in some cases using blunt collection tactics that Indian activists have linked to a string of suicides.

A growing chorus of tech companies and regulators have cracked down. Globally, Google has blocked hundreds of apps from its Android store to protect borrowers from “misleading and exploitative terms.” Officials in China, Indonesia and Kenya followed suit, shutting down dozens of startups promising easy money to unbanked people.

India, which has among the largest number of such applications in the world, has also taken action. The Reserve Bank of India raised the prospect of new rules for digital lenders in November. A panel set up by the bank found that more than half of the roughly 1,100 digital loan providers were operating illegally.

But protecting borrowers in India is particularly tricky, given the country’s outdated personal bankruptcy laws and its size: more than a billion people lack access to formal credit. And while complaints of harassment by digital lenders extend far beyond its borders, India’s ambition to become a haven for technological innovation combined with a Byzantine bureaucracy make radical regulatory intervention diffiworship.

Millions of Indians rely on apps, and there is often no clear way for borrowers to tell the legal from the shoddy.

“These platforms clearly address an unmet need,” said Eswar Prasad, professor at the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University. “The persistence of digital lenders charging sky-high interest rates indicates an unrealized demand for credit and other products that are not sufficiently satisfied by the traditional financial system. “

The failings of the banking system are increasingly difficult to ignore. India is one of the fastest growing fintech markets in the world, with digital loans expected to reach $ 350 billion by 2023. Much of this growth will come from short-term, unsecured loans rather than secured credits, according to Yashraj Erande, managing director and partner of the Boston Consulting Group in Mumbai.

EffEfforts to rule illegal apps have met with mixed results.

After the flags were raised by Indian officials, Google reviewed hundreds of apps on the Play Store, according to a company spokesperson. Platforms now have to prove they have the appropriate lending licenses and cannot demand a full refund in less than 60 days. (Android is the smartphone of choice for most Indians, although there are some apps available for iOS as well.)

But enforcing stricter rules has become a mole game. Rahul Sasi, who runs cybersecurity firm CloudSEK and was one of the experts who made recommendations to the Reserve Bank of India, said digital lending is a sprawling market and hard to tame.

Banned apps simply move to third-party platforms such as Aptoide, he said, or advertise via SMS. Consumers sometimes take out loans with no intention of repaying them. The apps, in turn, use mafia-style collection tactics.

“The crime will be there in one form or another,” Sasi said.

Paulo Trezentos, CEO of Aptoide, wrote in an email that his company does not host apps unless they are also available on Google Play. Lenders linked to “illegal activities in any form” are immediately removed, he said.

Analysts say the rigs are often owned by offshore entities, making it difficult for India to take legal action. Some applications use technology infrastructure built by Chinese companies that operate cloud services from Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. and Baidu, Inc., according to Srikanth L., the founder of Cashless Consumer, a collective that studies the fintech industry.

In an email, a spokesperson for Baidu said fintech is now managed by Du Xiaoman Financial, a separate company, and declined to comment further. A spokesperson for Du Xiaoman Financial said the company has no business in India. Alibaba did not respond to requests for comment.

The Reserve Bank of India could toughen digital lending rules as early as this year. The guidelines under review include stiff penalties for non-compliant applications, with particular emphasis on eliminating unregulated loan providers. Large digital payment companies such as Paytm have not been accused of similar predatory behavior.

The risk is that unscrupulous businesses will step up their manipulative practices as the stress in personal lending increases. Consumer credit delinquency levels rose in September from a year earlier, Reserve Bank of India data showed last week.

“The recommendations are definitely a step in the direction of the fight against illegal lending,” said Vivek Belgavi, FinTech and alliance leader at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in India.

Campaigners say stronger regulatory action could also help save lives. Over the past year, SaveThem India Foundation, a nonprofit that helps victims of cybercrime, has linked 17 suicides to harsh recovery tactics.

For first-time borrowers like Rajapandian, who worked as a manager at a thermal power plant in Chennai, going to a digital lender in 2020 was his only option instead of credit for a traditional loan.

As the coronavirus swept through India, closing factories and displacing millions of workers, Rajapandian tried to prepare for the worst. CASHe, which he downloaded to his Android phone, offered a quick infusion of cash to supplement his $ 200 monthly salary and help care for his wife and 4-year-old son.

But Rajapandian struggled to make the payments on the loan, which had a 300% interest charge. That’s when the threats started, he said.

For months, he said, CASHe agents called him several times a week, “mistreated my parents and my wife” and contacted the thermal power plant. When his boss grew increasingly angry, threatening to fire, Rajapandian quit his job. Last month, he filed a complaint with the police.

“I thought about suicide,” he said.

A local police station in Chennai has confirmed receipt of Rajapandian’s complaint against the app, which was filed on December 17. CASHe, a Mumbai-based company founded in 2016, did not respond to a detailed list of questions. The company, which claims a customer base of more than 3 million customers, has not been charged with any crime.

Rajapandian said the calls have not stopped. They have become so abusive, he said, that he tries to keep his new job a secret so that collectors don’t compromise that work as well.

“It’s no longer a question of money,” he said. – Bloomberg
