Creating Participation Loans

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF

Some banks choose to share a portion of the risk, and reward, of more complex loans. You can use PrecisionLender to price these loans as the originating bank, or the participating bank.

Originating the Participation Loan

If you are originating a loan and wish to sell a piece of that loan to another bank, use the “Participations” field in your Opportunity Pricing Page. In the example below, we have a $100,000 Commercial Real Estate loan in which we are going to participate out 25% of the deal to the “Bank Down the Street”.

Select the Participations field on the right side.

 

Amount of Participation:

Begin with the name of the participating bank and then enter the percentage of the deal they will own in the “Participation” box.  Combine everything together into one entry if you are participating the deal out to multiple banks.

Enter the name and the participation percentage.

 

Participation Upfront Premiums:

If you are charging an upfront premium to the participating bank(s) for bringing them the deal, you would enter that premium either as a % of the participation amount in the field "% of amount" or you can enter in a straight dollar figure in the box below it.   (Note:  Both upfront and annual premiums flow through the P&L as Origination Fees included in the Interest Income.

Enter the percentage or dollar figure of upfront premium received.

 

Participation Annual Premiums:

If you are charging an interest rate premium to the participating bank(s), you would enter the % in the "Interest Rate Premium" box or you can enter a straight dollar figure in the box below it.  For example, if the rate charged to the borrower is 5.0%, but you are collecting a 0.25% rate premium from the participating bank(s) then you are only passing through 4.75% of the nominal rate to the participating bank(s).  The 0.25% rate premium is entered in the "Interest Rate Premium" box.    (Note:  Both upfront annual premiums flow through the P&L as Origination Fees included in the Interest Income.)

Enter the annual premium received.

 

Participation Expenses:

Finally, you can choose to add any additional expenses you may incur from originating and servicing the participation deal at the bottom of your “Participation” pop-up box.  These expenses would be above and beyond your normal expenses found in the Origination and Servicing Channels above.

Etner any additional expenses incurred.

 

Participating in a Loan

If you are participating in another bank's loan, you should enter it as you would if you were winning that loan. The "Amount" field would be the amount that you are purchasing from the other bank; for example, if you're purchasing in a $5 million loan, but are only buying $2 million, enter $2 million as the amount. Any up front fees you are paying to purchase the loan should be entered as origination expense; any ongoing fees should be entered as servicing expense.
