Loan servicing includes sending monthly payment statements, collecting monthly payments, maintaining records of payments and balances, collecting and paying taxes and insurance (and managing escrow funds), remitting funds to the note holder, and following up any delinquencies.
Pool purchase participations (Mitigating Risk)
The advantages of loan participations to an originating/seller credit union are that the seller obtains liquidity to serve other members, has a tool to manage regulatory loan caps and spreads its lending risks. The advantage of loan participations to a buying credit union is the ability to earn a good return on assets.
