Maintain Customer Data

LMS.Fin centralizes all customer data, including financial metrics and links to electronic documents, enabling a rigorous customer review and monitoring process. Our rule-based workflow ensures that each conforms to management policies regarding overall lending limits and financial health.

Manage Warehouse Lines

LMS.Fin captures all salient features of a lending facility, including lending limits, advance matrices, haircuts, and collateral eligibility. Real-time risk monitoring includes views of over/under collateralized lines, outstanding margin calls, and aged/delinquent collateral. LMS.Fin boasts a flexible interface where users can specify financing arrangements at the line level; in addition committed and uncommitted balances can also be tracked at the line level.

Track Fundings, Sales, and Rolls

New funding requests can be loaded into the application using its built in tape-cracking functionality, or directly uploaded via the SSI Customer Portal. LMS.Fin provides an automated interface where fundings are set up automatically, and files are loaded through an automated mechanism (via LoanTalk).

Loan deliveries can be automatically screened against negotiated eligibility criteria; LMS.Fin workflow automatically compares facility limits with line utilization before funding is authorized. Finally, customized funding schedules and notifications are automatically sent to borrowers, and collateral release letters are generated to streamline the final funding process.

LMS.Fin provides a customized solution to the complex problem of monthly position rolls. Users can easily segregate loans being rolled from new deliveries, compare before-and-after utilization vs. defined sub-limits, and apply aging penalties to rolls. Full transaction history ensures that appropriate loan and line level tracking can be performed.

Interest Accruals

LMS.Fin allows daily rates to be uploaded from market data feeds, and real-time accrual calculations are automatically calculated on nightly funded positions. Full daily and monthly accrual history is retained, allowing customers to receive detailed reporting on position and interest charges.
