Jamie Dimon was in London last week. Among other priorities, the CEO of JPMorgan was giving a boost to the US banking giant’s latest expansion drive – the rollout of its UK retail banking brand, through an online-only initiative.

JP’s boastful global ambitions contrast sharply with the diminished prospects of many European banks. In recent months, the roll call of lenders across the continent opting out of US operations has grown.

Last week, he appeared that the French BNP was looking to sell San Francisco-based Bank of the West. A year ago, the Spanish BBVA sold its American unit to PNC. Over the summer, HSBC sold most of its US operations to Citizens.

Citizens himself was part of RBS (now NatWest) for almost 30 years until the British group’s collapse and rescue forced a sell-off six years ago.

Independence from a foreign owner, especially a weak one, turned out to be a liberating experience. Listed on the stock exchange, Citizens, under the leadership of Bruce Van Saun (former financial director of RBS), has been able to attract quality bankers who would not have considered working for a subsidiary of a British group.

Part of it is rewards. Stock-based compensation is based on a more direct influence on the company’s fortunes. There is no risk of losing the capital allocation from the headquarters in London or Edinburgh.

At the same time, Citizens has embarked on targeted expansion – in commercial banking, mergers and acquisitions, and core investment banking. Overall, this translated into a tangible return on equity – a benchmark of profitability – of nearly 14 percent at last count, more than double the count when it was created from RBS and not far from that of JPMorgan 18 percent.

The fortunes of European-owned American operations have been less inspiring. Many foreign banks have been drawn to the size of the US market and the margins that tend to be larger than at home, not to mention an economy that has been looking better for years.

But none have been able to claim the scale needed to build a credible business to compete with domestic players like JPMorgan or Bank of America. The advent of fintechs has added to the competitive challenge. The costs of regulatory compliance – much higher after 2008 – turned out to be disproportionate for small groups.

The net result? European banks have underperformed, attracting second-tier staff, second-rate clients and what a former bank boss calls a “serious negative selection issue” on strategy.

For a European lender, this is almost part of the strategy. Santander’s subprime auto loan business, Scusa, has grown significantly in recent years, attracting customers rejected by traditional banks. A further boost came from cash flow distributed under the U.S. Covid-19 relief program, which prompted millions of families to invest in items, including cars.

The US operation of Santander quietly overtook Spain, Brazil and the United Kingdom to become the main contributor to the group’s profits: it generated 2.8 billion euros in profit before tax out of a total of 11, € 4 billion in first nine months of the year. As it stands, the Spanish group appears to be a significant exception to the larger European fail-and-pull trend, with plans instead to grow further.

Some rivals argue that problems are brewing. At the height of a debt cycle, there is a danger that defaults, especially among subprime borrowers, will explode. The 2007-2008 subprime crisis showed the potential dangers in this area. Last year the group was forced to close a $ 550 million settlement with US authorities after being accused of aggressive lending practices, although current management points to reformed practices.

Another criticism of the US Santander operation is that it includes a mix of units: in addition to the subprime consumer lender and an investment bank, it has a wealth manager in Miami and a bank. low-profit retail in Boston. Synergies should however be strengthened in the coming months: a plan to buy out the 20% minority listed in Boston retail banking will allow deposits to be recycled freely to support the car loan business. Ana Botín, the executive president of Santander, started her career as a banker at JPMorgan. Whether, in the long run, it can really thwart the American ignominy model of European banks and somewhat mimic Jamie Dimon’s success, is an open question.

What are Online Loans Direct Lenders?

Sometimes, it is simpler to define something in terms of what it’s not. A direct lender isn’t an affiliate broker, agent, or lead provider that connects you to the online lending.

So, what exactly does this mean?

Direct lenders are your sole point of contact during the entire borrowing process. It provides and manages your online credit line or loan.

That means you’re dealing directly with them directly regarding the online credit line, or loanthat’s why they’re called that.

It is common to work with only one lender during the following reasons:

  • The process of applying for a personal line of credit or loan
  • In receipt of your funds If you are the funds are approved
  • The repayment of your personal credit line or loan

Online direct lenders are the best option many of these procedures will take place on the internet.

How do online loans with Direct Lenders work?

In general, it all begins on the financial institution’s site. This is where you can get an online application form for an individual loan or line of credit.

This application serves as a means the financial institution learn more about you. In particular, it assists to determine if you can be able to repay the amount you wish to credit. They could make this decision by looking at your credit report and your pay and income however the details on this subject will be determined by your financial institution.

In most cases direct lenders will examine the information you provide prior to making a final loan decision. If you’re approved by the lender, you can get your money as early as the next business day.

Most likely, you will receive the funds in direct deposits into the account that you indicated when you submitted the initial application. You could also opt to authorise your direct lender to act as an payee, which means it will be able to schedule automatic withdrawals from the same account at the due date.

If you are required to pay these bills will depend on the kind of loan that you get out.

The types of online Loans Direct lenders offer

Online loans are part of a wide range of finance products. Most products fall under it, provided that it meets the following basic requirements that you can request, accept the loan, and pay it back via the internet instead of an institution that is located in a physical store. There are also elements of this process that are conducted on the phone, based upon the lending institution.

They are a good the best option for emergencies and may differ in terms and size.

Today we’re looking at online loans that can aid you in tackling an expenses in your personal life. Let’s look over the following examples.

Payday loans

Payday loans online are low-cost short-term loans that you can pay back all in one installment and any other applicable fees. Usually, you’re required to pay them back by your next pay day to pay back these loans which is the reason they’re referred to as payday loans.

In general the payday loans are a great way to get less money in exchange for an additional cost. The fees and/or interest that are associated with these types of loans are typically expensive. [1]

Installment Loans

With an installment loan on the internet You also receive the total loan amount, however you’ll have to repay it over a number of installments. The loan is then spread over months, weeks, or perhaps even over a period of time. The term will be determined by your financial institution as well as the type of loan you are taking out.

As opposed to payday loans installment loans may vary greatly in size, application and cost. The amount you get is contingent on the kind of loan you’ve requested. In the end, an mortgage (which is among the most significant installment loans available) provides more cash than a short-term installment loans intended to pay for unexpected expenses that arise in emergencies.

Your credit score could affect the amount you get and the costs you incur. While certain installment loans may be just the same than payday advances, some could be a cheaper alternative.

Lines of Credit

Any financial institution that gives you an individual line of credit might be a personal loans online direct lender. The personal credit line is distinct from other options on this list because it is a type of the revolving credit.

Revolving credit is a type of product which provides money with a limit for withdrawal instead of an amount that is fixed. You can draw the entire credit amount as you like so long as you have credit available as well as a good credit score. When you have paid off the amount you’ve used (plus any fees or interest) You are able to keep withdrawing up to this amount.

Cosigner Loans

Cosigner loans provide some assurance for your financial institution so to ensure that your debt is paid. Instead of using an asset that is valuable they require another borrower waiting to take over.

The other borrower is your back-up plan and must be able to pay the bills in case you’re unable to. They’ll be able to apply along with you, and it’s best to choose someone with good credit.

A cosigner who has a great credit history can increase the chances of getting accepted for a bigger rate of loan at lower rates. For more information about cosigners, take a look at an earlier post where we address the most important question: what exactly is cosigners?

Secured Personal Loans

As of now, the kinds of loans in this list are classified as unsecured. In order to get approved, you don’t have to offer any collateral. Secured personal loans, however, can provide flexible borrowing options at lower interest rates. The most important thing is that you need to secure it by collateral. This is a bit different from the other examples above, as they are supported by your creditworthiness and/or the promise you make to pay.

Collateral is a security feature for the lender’s side of the deal since it serves as a fail-safe in the event that you’re unable to pay back your loan. You agree the possibility that your bank could use this asset to pay instead.

How to invest in real estate: 10 ways to buy without money https://cambodianscene.com/how-to-invest-in-real-estate-10-ways-to-buy-without-money/ Sat, 20 Nov 2021 01:46:09 +0000 https://cambodianscene.com/how-to-invest-in-real-estate-10-ways-to-buy-without-money/ skynesher / Getty Images Investing in real estate can be daunting, especially if you don’t have the money.

Investing in real estate can be daunting, especially if you don’t have the money. If you’re ready to buy a property but don’t have the cash on hand, read on for 10 ways to start investing in real estate right now.

1. Real estate investment trust

REIT companies own or finance income producing real estate in various real estate sectors. REITs are similar to mutual funds, offering everyday real estate investors the opportunity to earn income and returns based on dividends. You can invest in a real estate portfolio by purchasing shares of individual companies through an exchange traded fund or a mutual fund.

As a REIT shareholder, you earn a share of the income produced without purchasing, financing or directly managing the property. If you choose to invest in real estate with a REIT, you are in good company, as nearly 145 million American homeowners have invested in REITs through their retirement plans, such as IRAs and 401 (k) and other investment funds.

2. Hard money loan

Hard money loans are also known as bridge loans, short-term asset-backed bridge loans, also known as STABBLs, and asset-backed loans. They are used for short term mortgage financing. You can’t get a hard money loan from a bank or a credit union. Only private and individual lenders offer hard cash home loans.

Obtaining a hard money loan is often an easier and faster way to invest in real estate than going through the traditional process of institutional funding and approval. Plus, your credit history is not a problem, as hard cash loans are asset based.

Investors who use cash loans to buy real estate are usually people who renovate and sell properties for profit.

3. Government loans

The US government offers loan programs for real estate investment. Here are a couple to consider.

  • Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Home Loan Program guarantees loans to eligible veterans, military personnel, reservists, members of the National Guard and certain surviving spouses of veterans. This loan usually requires $ 0 down payment and low interest rates.
  • Rural Housing Loan Program offers direct and secured loans to buy, build and improve a permanent residence. You can finance a new manufactured home if it is on a permanent site and was purchased from a government approved contractor or dealer. The property must be located in a rural area and you must be considered a low income earner.

4. Wholesale

Real estate investors can make huge profits from wholesaling real estate. This strategy involves wholesalers selling multiple properties to a retailer, who then renovates them and sells them to a third party buyer at a much higher cost. The wholesaler may charge the retailer a lower price because of the volume sold to the retailer.

5. Home hacking

If you want to invest in real estate but are worried about how you’ll pay your monthly mortgage, consider hacking your home. As a hacker, you become owner and owner. How is it?

You are buying a multi-family property. You live in one unit and rent out the other units. You can also renovate a single-family home into a multi-family property, creating an apartment unit for rent. The goal of home hacking is to generate enough income from the rent you collect to cover your entire monthly mortgage payment.

6. Capital partnerships

One of the ways to invest in real estate with little or no money is to create capital partnerships. If you are short of funds, you can use your wedding rings to make up the difference. Find a cheap property that is not in the best condition, and your financial partner can use their purchasing power – credit score and capital – to finance it. Each equity partner gets a percentage of ownership on the property.

7. Vendor financing

Before embarking on seller financing, be aware of the financial and legal risks. With seller financing, the seller becomes your direct lender. If you don’t qualify for a traditional mortgage, you might consider financing a loan through the seller of the home.

You can negotiate your loan agreement and the financing process is generally faster than the traditional method of financial institutions. The seller-funded agreement is also referred to as a land contract or contract for deed.

8. Home equity loan

When property values ​​are high, a home equity loan can be a viable real estate investment option for you if you don’t have upfront money available. With more equity in your home, you can capitalize on two options: rewrite in cash and refinance the first mortgage, or hold on to the first loan and take out a home equity line of credit, also known as HELOC.

Be sure to look for lenders who allow investors to take out HELOCs on rental properties.

9. Purchase option agreement

If you are a current tenant, you can enter into an option to purchase agreement with the landlord. This contract gives you the right to buy the property in the future. The Tenant and Landlord agree that a portion of the monthly rent payment is applied to the tenure of ownership over the term specified under the Rental Agreement with Option to Buy.

10. Private money loan

When you have no money and want to invest in real estate, a private cash loan can speed up the process. The catch is that interest on private money loans can range from 6% to 12%. Like hard money loans, funds come from individuals rather than traditional financial institutions. A good practice with private cash loans is to find a property that can be purchased for 50 cents on the dollar.

Your credit score is key

If your credit history isn’t great, you can still invest in real estate without putting money down. You must first know and understand your credit score. This is the number that lenders use to determine the likelihood that you will pay off your loan on time. The higher your score, the better your chances of getting a loan.

Keep in mind

If your credit score is far from perfect, you can still get financing, but it’s always better to negotiate from a position of knowledge rather than ignorance.

You can invest in real estate without cash using the financial tools described in this article. Take a look at them and choose the one that best suits your unique situation and needs.

RBI’s proposals restrict e-lending to regulated businesses https://cambodianscene.com/rbis-proposals-restrict-e-lending-to-regulated-businesses/ Fri, 19 Nov 2021 22:30:00 +0000 https://cambodianscene.com/rbis-proposals-restrict-e-lending-to-regulated-businesses/ MUMBAI: The e-lending standards proposed by the Reserve Bank of India will have an impact on many digital lenders who take credit risks while distributing loans to others, as these deals can be banned.

MUMBAI: The e-lending standards proposed by the Reserve Bank of India will have an impact on many digital lenders who take credit risks while distributing loans to others, as these deals can be banned. The regulation, which does not want to consolidate entities that facilitate lending using technology under the RBI, wants to eliminate non-lenders providing collateral for the loans.
While this reduces the build-up of systemic risk through off-balance sheet loans by unregulated players, it still leaves a gray area for unregulated entities to function as distributors. The RBI report notes that the banks lent Rs 1.1 lakh crore via digital mode, while the NBFC advanced Rs 23,000 crore via this channel. Most of them come in the form of unsecured personal loans for a few thousand rupees. But these have a short lifespan and lead to a high churn rate of the wallet.

According to a report from Macquarie, while many digital lenders will be affected, Paytm is safe because it does not enter into loan agreements where it provides a first loss default guarantee (FLDG) to actual lenders. “The report recommends that all fintech loans be reported directly to the credit bureaus. It also prohibits the sharing of credit risk between fintech and banks / NBFC in the form of FLDG agreements, ”Macquarie Capital associate director Suresh Ganapathy said in the report. He added that while Paytm is clear here as it plans to act as a pure distributor of consumer loans, several players in the FinTech industry for which this is a standard will be severely affected.
As the RBI aims to ban fintech platforms, determining which collateral is intended for credit risk can be tricky as all lenders seek some level of indemnification from service providers. “Even where there are no FLDG arrangements, the lenders have an agreement with the distributor to compensate them for any loss caused by the action of the agent or employee. This does not mean that the distributor assumes a credit risk. The challenge will be to distinguish these clauses from a guarantee of default, ”said Sandeep Srinivasa, founder of microcredit startup Red Carpet.
“The proposals will demolish many existing loan sharks and reduce unfair practices. Additionally, recommending digital lenders to provide a key fact statement in a standardized format, including the annual percentage rate, will give borrowers a better perspective of the high percentage rate they are willing to bear, ”said Gaurav Chopra, Founder and CEO. of IndiaLends and founding member of the Digital Lending Association of India (DLAI).
In 2019, a high-level committee on micro, small and medium enterprises led by former Sebi UK chairman Sinha recommended loan service providers (LSPs). The Sinha panel had said that the regulator must create this new category of LSP, which will be a borrower’s agent. LSPs offering individualized advice must act in the best interests of borrowers, respecting the fiduciary obligations of disclosure, loyalty and prudence. Likewise, loan officers such as direct selling agents (DSAs) and brokers should be required to disclose conflicts that compromise their impartiality, such as incentives for lenders to market more expensive loans compared to others, and clearly itemize the fees they add to loans.
However, the loan service providers’ proposal was not accepted. “The RBI report suggested that the web loan product aggregator be subject to discipline and a code of conduct. Regulating aggregators would have been positive for the industry as it still leaves entities to operate outside of regulation, ”said another digital lender who did not want to be named.
Signzy Tech Co-Founder and CEO Ankit Rata said, “Currently, the industry is seeing many unregulated digital lenders operating in the space that haven’t even implemented basic KYC controls. We believe that if the recommendations are adopted, it will not only help protect consumers, but also limit data privacy breaches while limiting fraudulent transactions. ”

CUNA on Wednesday joined organizations calling on congressional leaders to remove a provision allowing the Small Business Administration (SBA) to become a direct lender of the reconciliation framework. The proposal would allow the SBA to offer loans of $ 150,000 or less directly to small businesses or through partnerships with third parties.

“We are concerned that this new government-run program will undermine existing public-private partnership SBA loan programs, while potentially limiting access to capital for smaller small businesses due to increased complexity,” the letter said, adding that the legislation provides about $ 2 billion over a 10-year window for the program and 90 days to enact the rules.

“The complexity of setting up a loan program in such a short time frame will lead to many problems that could ultimately drive potential applicants away from any type of SBA loan,” the letter said.

CUNA notes that the SBA’s earlier efforts to engage in direct loans “encountered high rates of fraud and default” and that the subsidy rate for direct loans was “considerably higher” than the rate. subsidy loan guarantee programs.

“The regulatory guarantees that exist for financial institutions have proven to be a much better protection against fraud and defaults than programs managed by the SBA,” the letter adds.

The small business credit landscape in 2022 https://cambodianscene.com/the-small-business-credit-landscape-in-2022/ Wed, 17 Nov 2021 11:26:17 +0000 https://cambodianscene.com/the-small-business-credit-landscape-in-2022/ Supply chain delays, worker shortages and rising wages make it more costly for small business owners to capitalize on pent-up pandemic demand – especially as the holiday season approaches.

Supply chain delays, worker shortages and rising wages make it more costly for small business owners to capitalize on pent-up pandemic demand – especially as the holiday season approaches.

But that doesn’t mean they have to lose what should be a strong holiday season and beyond. Financing options abound, as banks and non-bank institutions continue to open their coffers to small businesses across the country.

Over the past several months, loan approvals have been slowly increasing in all types of lenders except credit unions. According to the Biz2Credit Small Business Lending Index, alternative lenders dominated the pack in October, approving 25.6% of borrowers. This is up from 25.4% in September. The big banks approved 14.1% of loans, compared to 14%. Meanwhile, small banks approved 19.7% of loan applications, an increase of 0.2%.

“Loans are coming back, more from alternative sources, but also small banks are increasing their lending again,” Rohit Arora, CEO of Biz2Credit, told business.com.

In addition to a willingness to lend, many are relaxing their standards. “Since companies got $ 1.3 billion in canceled loans [during the pandemic], lenders can afford to be less stringent, ”Arora said.

Many companies’ sales are up this year, he said, and their debt is much lower than in 2019, which is also useful.

Did you know? When we set out to find the best small business loan providers, we focused a lot on alternative lenders. We know they are more willing to work with all kinds of small businesses, require less paperwork, and offer quick financing. But there’s a catch: the cost of borrowing is usually higher.

SBA sets record for non-pandemic lending volume

It’s not just small banks and alternative lenders that are picking up the pace of lending. The US Small Business Administration, which has proven to be a lifeline during the pandemic, is also setting lending records. Earlier this month, the SBA announced that it was supporting $ 4.8 billion in small business financing in fiscal 2021 through more than 61,000 traditional loans. That does not include the $ 1 trillion and more in COVID-19 relief the SBA has provided since the start of the pandemic. The lending volume of its 504 loan program has increased by 41% this year.

The SBA expects another busy year in 2022, with much of the volume pulled by lenders looking to reduce their exposure. “Concerns about the pandemic in the economy add some risk,” said Alan Haut, district director of the SBA’s office in North Dakota. “Lenders, banks, and credit unions generally don’t like a lot of risk. An SBA guarantee helps reduce that in an uncertain environment.”

The stigma among business owners is fading

The willingness of lenders to provide various types of small business loans is increasing as the stigma associated with borrowing disappears. In a recent PayPal survey44% of small business owner respondents said they were now more willing to apply for a small business loan than before the pandemic, and 1 in 3 said they plan to seek financing next year.

“The pandemic has created a lot of stress and small businesses have had to reinvent themselves,” said Bernardo Martinez, vice president of global merchant loans at PayPal. “They’re embracing their new roles online and really trying to invest in these areas. They need capital that they maybe didn’t need in the past.”

Among business owners surveyed by PayPal, 1 in 5 said they need money to boost their email and social media marketing, while another 20% want to grow. During the holiday season, corporate borrowers provide loans for marketing and advertising, strengthen their online presence, and sell to new markets.

adviceAdvice: It may be too late to stock up for the holidays, given the chaos in the supply chain, but small business owners should already be preparing for 2022. Valentine’s Day and Easter are fast approaching not.

Where can small businesses get financing?

Now is a good time to become a small business owner if you are in need of financing. There are different options for securing the capital. With interest rates hovering at pandemic lows, borrowing is also cheaper.

Take the banks to start. The big ones don’t lend, but the little ones do. “Community banks account for 43% of all business loans, over 40% of farm loans and over a third of commercial real estate loans,” said Orvin Kimbrough, president and CEO of Midwest BankCentre.

These local banks maintain relationships with their small business clients, which facilitates the underwriting process. However, getting approved for a bank loan can be difficult. It requires a lot of paperwork, which is why 16% of business owners PayPal surveyed said they had not applied for a business loan.

Small business owners, however, have choices outside of bank loans. They can borrow against their current and future sales through working capital loans and cash advances to traders. These loans generally require much less paperwork and the financing can be quick.

for your informationFOR YOUR INFORMATION: In our review of Rapid Finance, we found that it can transfer money to a borrower’s bank account in as little as 24 hours after approval. You can find out more about lenders who provide money fast in our SBG Funding review and our Balboa Capital review.

Short-term loans and equipment finance are other popular options with banks and alternative lenders. Short-term loans – which are often used for cash flow, inventory, or promotions that deliver direct results – have terms of no more than 18 months. The subscription is less painful and the financing is fast. Our review of Fora Financial found that its maximum term was 15 months. Business lines of credit and microloans are other options for small business owners.

Final resultAt the end of the line : Small business owners have a lot of financing options. If you have the time for the longer process, a bank loan is a good choice. If you need quick financing, consider working capital loans and cash advances to traders.

Money is flowing again to small business owners, but that doesn’t mean every loan is right for you. Before choosing a loan, determine why you need the money and for how long. If it’s to buy more inventory before the holidays, a working capital loan or a cash advance to the merchant may be a good option. If you have to buy expensive machines, equipment financing is a better choice.

“What are the funds used for? Are you just filling a gap, or is it actually to fuel growth? said Hal Shelton, SCORE mentor and angel investor. “There must be an advantage. How much will you get, will you be able to pay it back, and will you have anything left? “

Measuring the impact of PPP loans in Iowa https://cambodianscene.com/measuring-the-impact-of-ppp-loans-in-iowa/ Wed, 17 Nov 2021 07:49:24 +0000 https://cambodianscene.com/measuring-the-impact-of-ppp-loans-in-iowa/ Jim Plagge notes that in his role as President and CEO of Bank Iowa, he does not directly manage client relationships, but in 2020 he received many direct calls from clients about the announcement of the first. paycheck protection program loan series to offer. during the pandemic. “They were looking for advice,” he recalls. “They […]]]>

Jim Plagge notes that in his role as President and CEO of Bank Iowa, he does not directly manage client relationships, but in 2020 he received many direct calls from clients about the announcement of the first. paycheck protection program loan series to offer. during the pandemic. “They were looking for advice,” he recalls. “They asked, ‘What should I do? I wasn’t really touched; I don’t feel good about it.'”

OPPORTUNITY KO: The paycheck protection program may have been a lot of work for the Bank Iowa team, but Jim Plagge, president and CEO, said he also brought in new clients. at the bank. (Courtesy of Iowa Bank)

And while at the start of the pandemic, many weren’t sure how long that would last or what it might mean for businesses, Plagge recalls offering this insight: “Our constant advice was that you don’t know what’s going to happen. happen. We have no idea what impact this is going to have on you. “

Of course, the pandemic has persisted – and even now, with supply chain issues plaguing many businesses, the Iowa lender may have been a little ahead of the value of PPP loans.

Bank Iowa advised a range of business clients not to pass up the loan opportunity due to growing uncertainty, and it was round one. When the second round of PPP loans arrived, the farmers were part of the mix, also expanding the program for the lender. Nationally, skilled farms have raised nearly $ 6 billion in PPP loan funds.

By the end of both rounds, Bank Iowa had processed approximately 3,500 PPP loans for a volume of approximately $ 90 million. And the result? Bank Iowa recently released the numbers and determined that it had protected 11,872 Iowa jobs in the past two years.

The family-owned lender has 26 locations and more than $ 1.7 billion in assets, making the company one of the state’s leading independent agricultural banks.

Although PPP loans have reached almost every segment of the industry, these industries have demonstrated the greatest needs, and it shows the number of jobs saved:

• Construction and real estate (2,313 jobs)
• Health care (2,224 jobs)
• Agriculture (1,866 jobs)
• Restaurant (1,103 jobs)
• Automotive (1,093 jobs)

No easy task

When PPP loans were first offered, some major lenders, including Farm Credit, did not immediately decide to participate. It was a challenge for businesses looking for loans, with many not getting a response from their regular lenders. Many have turned to Bank Iowa.

“Clients of the largest national banks – and, in some cases, Farm Credit – contacted us, or we contacted them once we knew that dynamic was in play,” Plagge said. “We picked up some great deals and in some cases took over the entire banking relationship for customers.”

While the program has attracted new clients, keep in mind that the first days of the program occurred during a pandemic. At the time, half of Bank Iowa’s staff worked from home on shifts, but they rose to the challenge. The loan initiation system had some problems at start-up, but things ended up going easier, but not always.

“It took some of our team to stay up until two or three in the morning to download loans when the Small Business Administration portal wasn’t as clogged up and crashing,” recalls. he.

Yet overall, Plagge was pleased with the ease with which a government quick start program was implemented. “If you had told me this program was going to be able to get as many loans as it did in less time, I would have said you were crazy,” he says. “The SBA did a good job, and the creators went the extra mile. From that point of view, I’d say it’s a raging success.”

The final step in working with clients on the loan remission portion of the program, which is currently being processed through SBA; Plagge says the process is also going smoothly. The local community bank was able to move quickly to help customers and gain new ones at the same time. For Bank Iowa and its customers, PPP loans have become a win-win situation.
