Frequently Asked Questions

Lender-to-lender financing is the process where a lender, such as Accord, provides an operating line of credit or term loan facility to traditional or fintech lenders engaged in consumer or commercial finance. These advances are secured by your portfolio of outstanding loans. We have 43 years’ experience in lender-to-lender finance and understand the unique financing needs of lenders.

When you use a lender-to-lender financing facility, your existing loan portfolio acts as collateral, allowing you to borrow against the eligible transactions within your loan portfolio. With access to a lender-to-lender loan facility, you will have additional funds to make more loans and grow your traditional or fintech loan portfolio.

Some of the most common financial structures used for lender finance include:

  • Equity investment
  • Lender-to-lender financing via term loans with minimum draws and structured payment arrangements
  • Lender-to-lender operating lines of credit which revolve with your financing requirements
  • Loan sales, participations or syndications through which you transfer all or part of your ownership interest in a group of loans

When it comes to lender finance options, raising equity is typically the most expensive form of capital, as you are selling an interest in your business on a permanent basis and giving up a share of all future earnings. One advantage of raising equity is that an increased equity base may help you in accessing lender-to-lender financing in the future.

When you use loan sales and participations as a source of lender financing, you are giving up a large portion of the revenue of the loans that you are selling. These lost revenues relate only to the life of the loan and may be offset by a premium paid by the buyer and a management fee that you may charge during the life of the loan.

Lender-to-lender financing is often the most inexpensive financing option for a traditional or fintech lender. With a lender-to-lender financing facility, you pay a fixed interest rate and do not give up a share of your revenue. Lender-to-lender financing structured as an operating line of credit is very flexible because the amount of the loan fluctuates with changes in your portfolio of traditional or fintech loans. You only pay interest on your lender-to-lender finance facility for funds that you borrow to deploy in your portfolio. A lender-to-lender facility allows you to maintain control and ownership of all the loans you originate.

As a finance company or fintech lender seeking lender financing, you have multiple options, including:

  • Direct investment from existing shareholders, friends, family or new shareholders
  • Lender finance capital provided by private lenders
  • Capital provided by hedge funds and or other investment funds seeking high yield returns
  • Lender-to-lender financing through loans from banks or non-bank financial institutions

Through our lender-to-lender finance program, we provide financing to both commercial lenders and consumer lenders. We work with companies whose focus is in the non-prime or subprime lending space and offer lender-to-lender financing to a variety of sectors, including:

  • Factoring companies
  • Merchant cash advance companies
  • Auto financing & auto leasing
  • Small business loans
  • Short-term personal loans
  • Fintech lenders

Structuring your lender-to lender finance facility as a revolving line of credit provides flexibility in that you only draw funds and pay interest when the funds are deployed within your portfolio. By comparison, with lender-to-lender financing structured as a term loan, you pay interest on the loan even if you have not deployed the funds.

It is important for you to find a lender that is the right fit for your lender-to-lender financing needs. Some key points to consider when selecting a lender to provide you with a lender-to-lender financing facility are:

  • Does the lender have an established track record in the lender-to-lender financing space?
  • Does the lender understand traditional and fintech lending?
  • Does the lender have the capacity to increase your lender-to-lender financing facility and keep up with your growth?
  • Will the structure of the lender-to-lender loan facility allow you to access an adequate amount of leverage?
  • Does the lender have a stable source of funding for their own business?
  • Do you have direct access to deal with senior management and decision makers?
  • Can the lender supply you with positive references from other traditional or fintech lenders that they have provided lender-to-lender financing to?
