The Jack Henry Loan Marketplace allows loans to be presented as single transactions or pooled together and can accommodate any lending asset class. The digital format reduces document transfer from weeks to a day, sometimes minutes. Marketplace participants gain a transparent process that provides an audit trail of all buying, selling, and trading. Intuitive listings allow users to navigate the marketplace with ease, filtering by asset class, product type, geography, loan amounts, and counts, or a number of other credit metrics. Financial institutions also receive deal notifications whenever a trade hits the marketplace that matches their current conditions.
