  • The business case for adopting digital automation for small business and consumer loans

    first_imgThe small business and consumer unsecured loan market is enormous—$1.3 trillion by some estimates. However, for community and regional financial institutions under $10 billion in assets, this market is quickly becoming a missed opportunity. Institutions this size have a mere nine percent penetration into the market for small business loans under $100K and only an 11 percent share of the personal loan/credit card market. At credit unions, in particular, loan approval rates are at the lowest mark to-date, dropping to 40.7% in March 2017, according to a recent Biz2Credit Small Business Lending Index™. These paltry numbers are disappointing, especially when you consider institutions of this size used to stake claim to these loans before ceding them to non-bank, online lenders. The primary reason for the abdication of this market is the fact that loans of this size are simply too expensive for community institutions to deliver for the return they offer. They are cost centers rather than sources of revenue. However, by replacing manual loan processes with digital technology—which automates the entire lending process and significantly reduces the cost to originate, underwrite and manage these loans—community and regional credit unions can reclaim a significant portion of this ripe loan market. With digital technology, a true business case for serving members in this space emerges.Exhibit A compares potential return on assets for a $38,000 small business loan for both digital and manual processes. Even though the institution may generate $2,000 or more in revenue per loan using a manual process, the cost to sell and market the loan through traditional channels ($800), coupled with the cost of underwriting ($2,250), quickly diminishes any real income. The average cost to process a loan (regardless of size) using traditional, manual processes is approximately $2,500 per loan. Using digital technology, this cost is reduced to an impressive $200 or less.Loan losses using a manual process are pristine ($190), but even this cannot help make the loan profitable. When comparing the bottom line ROA for each loan process, revenue and fees earned per loan are much higher using the digital alternative.Exhibit B compares typical features of the same $38,000 small business loan. Using digital technology does not change much from an underwriting standpoint: average guarantor credit score is around 700 for both. However, what is gained using digital technology is the ability to charge members for a convenience. Average spreads of 10 to 15 percent are attractive to consumers, who have statistically demonstrated a willingness to pay this price for the convenience of securing a loan in three minutes or less from the comforts of home or while mobile. Conversely, using a manual underwriting process demands a lower rate, but it also requires a much more cumbersome process. Exhibit B also illustrates that using digital technology produces an increase in declined loans; however, these percentages are to be expected considering the additional volume of new loans entering the system, many of which are approved quickly and efficiently with little, if any, loan officer involvement. The key is to capitalize on convenience of managing the declinations using digital technology. Digital automation allows credit unions to charge for a convenience; trims marketing costs by accessing digital channels; and very importantly, reduces the cost to originate and underwrite the loans so dramatically that, even with higher loan losses, these loans are profitable once again. Digital lending as an industry is on the verge of exploding. By adopting digital technology, credit unions can derive significant efficiencies in the way they deliver loans, drive revenue and, most importantly, provide the experience members want—which makes for a compelling business case indeed. 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Trevor Knott Trevor Knott is a strategic marketing veteran who has spent much of his 20-year career developing marketing and distribution products and services for top-tier banks and suppliers to the banking … Web: www.bsgfinancial.com Detailslast_img read more

  • 2.8 Million Mosquito Nets to Be Distributed Free

    first_imgA consignment of at least 2.8 million mosquito nets has arrived in the country for distribution to households across the 15 political subdivisions, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has announced.  The mosquito nets are free of charge and distribution will begin Saturday, April 25 to coincide with World Malaria Day which a proclamation by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has declared a working holiday to be observed throughout Liberia.According to the Proclamation, April 25, is the 8th World Malaria Day, which will be celebrated under the global theme: “Invest In The Future, Defeat Malaria,” and the local slogan “No Mosquito, No Malaria.”The consignment of long lasting insecticide treated mosquito nets (LLINs) donated by the Global Fund to fight HIV and AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) in Liberia, is the largest single donation of LLINs since the start of the Global Fund Project in Liberia in 2005.According to a release from the MOH, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf will launch the campaign for the distribution of the 2.8 million mosquito nets during an indoor program at the Monrovia City Hall tomorrow.  The President is expected to be joined by US Ambassador Deborah Malac, Chairmen of the Senate and House’s Committees on Health, Senator Dr. Peter S. Coleman, and Representative Johnson Toe Chea, Health Minister Walter T. Gwenigale and Fund Portfolio Manager for the Global Fund, Noah Zahbrobsky.Others expected at the mosquito net distribution launch are Mr. Koala Oumarou, Country Director, Plan Liberia and Dr. Claude Emile Rwagacacondo, Roll Back Malaria Regional Coordinator for West and Central Africa, among others.MOH in partnership with Plan Liberia and other partners will follow in the President’s footstep to launch the distribution of the nets, too.The campaign intends to mainly target “those worst affected by malaria: pregnant women and children under five.”In Africa, malaria deaths have been cut by one third within the last decade and outside of Africa, 35 out of the 53 countries with access to malaria control interventions have reduced cases by 50 percent.  In the same period, countries where access to malaria control interventions have improved most significantly, overall child mortality rates have fallen by approximately 20 percent.According to research, continued investment in malaria control propels malaria-endemic countries along the path to achieving the 2015 Millennium Development Goals, especially those relating to improving child survival and maternal health, eradicating extreme poverty and expanding access to education.The Liberian Government, realizing the significance of protecting the wellbeing of its citizens and foreign residents, has ratified the Convention on the Right of the Child to good health and nutrition and, as a member of the World Health Organization (WHO), will join other global health partners in supporting all health programs.The President has requested the MOH and other government agencies, as well as international organizations concerned to initiate and execute programs to make the World Malaria Day meaningful.Cognizant of the harmful effects and burden malaria poses on the human race, particularly in Africa, a Resolution declaring April 25 of each year as Africa Malaria Day, amended as World Malaria Day, was adopted by the Summit of African Heads of State of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) now the African Union (AU) to initiate and implement Plans of Action that would curtail malaria and malaria-related mortality in Africa.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • New Horizons at Jupiter

    first_imgNew Horizons, a spaceship bound for Pluto, took a good look at the Jupiter system when passing by on Feb. 28.  The scientific findings were featured in a special section of Science last week, with 11 articles.  Joanne Baker said in the Introductory article,1 “The papers in this special issue record how the probe witnessed lightning and aurorae in Jupiter’s atmosphere, volcanic eruptions on the moon Io, and the pulsing of Jupiter’s magnetosphere, a cocoon of charged particles that swathes the entire system.”Io’s magnetic personality:  Of special interest is Io, the volcanic inner moon of Jupiter.  The spacecraft witnessed a major eruption of a polar volcano seen earlier by the Galileo mission:An eruption of the Tvashtar volcano on the satellite Io was caught in the act, allowing the mechanics of the sulfurous plume and the lava temperature to be measured.  Pollution from Io’s volcanoes has even reached the shores of Europa, an icy moon that may harbor oceans beneath its frozen surface.  Io’s volcanic emissions feed extra sulfur and oxygen ions into a vast particle cloud that circles the entire Jupiter system, held in place by the planet’s strong magnetic field.  Behind the planet, it is pulled into a magnetic shadow billions of kilometers long, streaming away from the Sun as the solar wind deflects around Jupiter.  Acting like a giant pipe, this magnetic tail drains half a metric ton of charged particles out of the jovian system each second.Apparently the mass lost down the magnetotail is just half of Io’s output.  Norbert Krupp, in another introductory article,2 said that Io is ejecting one metric ton per second of sulfur dioxide particles.  “Data from all of the previous missions have shown that Jupiter’s moon Io is the most important player in the configuration and dynamics of the jovian magnetosphere,” he exclaimed.  Keep in mind that Jupiter has the largest magnetosphere by far of any planet in the solar system.  This little moon is shedding a lot of responsibility (picture).Polar eruption:  Spencer et al described the volcanoes on Io in another paper (picture).3  The 350-km-high plume from Tvashtar (picture) contained “remarkable time-variable filamentary structures” (movie).  Tvashtar, erupting steadily during the eight days of the observations (picture), was just one of several active volcanoes witnessed in action (picture).  They measured lava temperatures nearly 2000° F. – consistent with basaltic lavas and not requiring “exotic high temperature magmas” inferred from some Galileo observations, they claimed (compare this 2002 abstract from Galileo scientists).Ring things:  Jupiter’s faint rings were the subject of a paper by Showalter et al (picture).4  They were surprised that clumps appeared in some new tenuous rings; these clumps “challenge our theoretical understanding,” they said (movie).  Another puzzle is that “The dusty jovian ring system must be replenished continuously from embedded source bodies,” but they could not find any new small moons capable of feeding the ring system other than the previously-known Metis and Adrastea (movie).  Jupiter’s rings showed significant variation since Galileo: a pattern matched by the thinnest rings at Saturn and Uranus.  “We conclude that the general class of dusty rings may be much more dynamic and time-variable than was previously supposed, with variations on 10- to 20-year time scales not the exception but the norm.”Europa dope:  New Horizons also got looks at Europa and Ganymede.5  It appears that Io is coating Europa with some of the non-ice material observed earlier on “thousand-year time scales” (picture).  The “young” crater Pwyll on Europa showed less contamination than others, supporting the idea that the salty material comes from outside the moon.  If so, this raises hopes that the ocean under the ice is not so salty as to inhibit life (09/17/2002).  Yet if Europa is undergoing “active resurfacing,” as they said, it might seem plausible that the accumulated salts from Io would contaminate the interior ocean over billions of years. Ganymede scarface:  Ganymede appears to be accumulating “a globally distributed dark material except where relatively recent impacts have excavated cleaner ice from below the surface.”  New Horizons observed three bright, rayed craters not mapped by earlier missions (picture).Visit the New Horizons website where there is a gallery of images from the Jupiter flyby.1.  Joanne Baker, “Grand Tour,” Science, 12 October 2007: Vol. 318. no. 5848, p. 215, DOI: 10.1126/science.318.5848.215.2.  Norbert Krupp, “New Surprises in the Largest Magnetosphere of Our Solar System,” Science, 12 October 2007: Vol. 318. no. 5848, pp. 216-217, DOI: 10.1126/science.1150448.3.  Spencer et al, “Io Volcanism Seen by New Horizons: A Major Eruption of the Tvashtar Volcano,” Science, 12 October 2007: Vol. 318. no. 5848, pp. 240-243, DOI: 10.1126/science.1147621.4.  Showalter et al, “Clump Detections and Limits on Moons in Jupiter’s Ring System,” Science, 12 October 2007: Vol. 318. no. 5848, pp. 232-234, DOI: 10.1126/science.1147647.5.  Grundy et al, “New Horizons Mapping of Europa and Ganymede,” Science, 12 October 2007: Vol. 318. no. 5848, pp. 234-237, DOI: 10.1126/science.1147623.We could not find where any of the scientists ventured to explain how these short-lived phenomena, sometimes called “dramatic,” could be sustained for 4.5 billion years.  New Horizons has shown that the Jupiter system’s dynamic activity, first observed in 1979 by the Voyagers, was not a fluke.  Volcanic eruptions, ring erosion and active resurfacing have continued unabated for the last 28 years.  How far back in time can these evidences of youth be extended?    Remember that nearly all of these phenomena were a complete surprise when first discovered.  Believers in a billions-of-years-old solar system did not predict them then, and cannot explain them now.  Some open-minded researcher should take the collective data and model it without the a priori constraint of billions of years.  Planetary science needs new horizons.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

  • South African entrepreneurs: tips to grow your business

    first_imgShoprite’s mobile soup kitchens help feed vulnerable South Africans across the country every day. (Image: Shoprite)A South African supermarket group is helping feed thousands of hungry people every day by donating unsold food to relief organisations.The Shoprite Group – which runs Shoprite and Checkers stores across the country – has a no-waste policy. Instead, surplus food is donated to Foodbank South Africa, which in turn distributes the food to hundreds of non-profit organisations, collectively feeding thousands of hungry people every day.In 2015 alone, the supermarkets donated close to R100-million worth of surplus food to organisations in need.Shoprite also directly services vulnerable communities across South Africa every day with its fleet of 19 mobile soup kitchens. Since they took to the road in February 2007, the kitchens have served over 27-million meals.Acting for changeThis winter, the supermarket group’s customers can also play their part to fight hunger by simply donating R5 or more to the #ActForChange Fund at any till-point in stores across the country. The funds go towards the work of FoodBank South Africa.“It costs FoodBank South Africa R1.08 to provide enough food for one meal, so a donation of R5 will allow us to provide nearly five meals,” said Kate Hamilton, fund development manager at Foodbank South Africa.“Considering that more than 13.8-million South Africans go hungry every day, we have a collective responsibility to work towards ending hunger in our country – and every little donation helps.”The #ActForChange Fund was launched in March this year after customers asked to be part of efforts making a difference in communities affected by the ongoing drought gripping the country.Customers have since donated well over R200 000 to the fund, which hopes to raise even more through winter.On Mandela Day this year, FoodBank South Africa will be holding a meal and hamper packing day in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg. The events will happen in 67-minute slots from 9 am to 3 pm on 18 July 2016.Check out Foodbank South Africa’s website on www.foodbanksa.org on how your donation will be used to make a difference.last_img read more
