In light of the previous approval of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), and the new round that goes live on January 18, 2021, PrecisionLender recommends setting up a specific product type for classifying these loans, and offers step-by-step coaching through our virtual assistant Andi. This allows for both pipeline tracking and Relationship Awareness product segregation in the loan portfolio. This article will cover how to setup a PPP loan in PrecisionLender that features these product updates. The last day for this program was June 30, 2020.

PrecisionLender Pricing Strategy

To set up the product, we recommend the following:

  • Include Single Pay loan and Amortizing loan payment type options 
  • You may wish to add a new Origination and Servicing channel to account for the labor-intensive nature of these loans both at origination and for the forgiveness process.
  • Modelling the Capital Exposure at 0% due to the Government Guarantee.
  • Setting a Collateral type of unsecured as the product default.
  • Setting a Government Guarantee of 100% as the product default
    • You may wish to have a slightly lower recovery factor on the guarantee to account for any perceived operational risk.

Once the product has been set-up, when pricing the opportunity:

  • We recommend a 6 months interest-only period. You may want to model a shorter term, a prepay rate, or assume some principal reduction due to the forgiveness aspect.

  • The reimbursement amount should be entered as fee income.

PrecisionLender Relationship Awareness Strategy

PrecisionLender recommends creating a specific product, such as Paycheck Protection, in your core system for PPP loans. Once the loan is booked and feeds into your data set, we will begin recognizing these deals as part of your existing book of business.

Relationship Awareness will focus on the residual 1% interest rate loan that is not forgiven within the program. Through the product setup in pricing, we will be able to utilize the appropriate financial details - including origination and servicing, channels, capital exposures, risk, and unsecured collateral.

To support this process, let us know that you've added the new product and the RA team will partner with your data experts to confirm the need for mapping updates and changes to your data set.
