Wolters Kluwer Delivers Risk Mitigation Technology Solution to Navigate CARES Act Loan Complexities

Security and Compliance , Risk Management

 Wolters Kluwer Lien Solutions has responded to urgent client needs and established a technology solution specifically designed to help U.S. lenders navigate the influx of business loan applications, and associated compliance and risk mitigation requirements, resulting from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

The Business Entity Search for CARES Act solution, offered by Wolters Kluwer’s Lien Solutions business, conducts bulk/batch corporate identity searches to verify the business status of potential borrowers. The report can be updated multiple times a day and can scale to high levels of loan applications in the coming weeks.

The CARES Act is an approximately $2 trillion coronavirus response bill intended to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 on the U.S. economy. With approximately $377 billion earmarked for small businesses via the Paycheck Protection Program, administered by the Small Business Administration, some banks have already reported tens of thousands of commercial loan applications, each requiring specific due diligence to determine whether the borrower meets loan guidelines outlined under the CARES Act.

“Our financial institution clients need to vet borrowers and deliver loans that will keep businesses afloat during this unprecedented situation, and we are on hand to support them,” said Raja Sengupta, Executive Vice President and General Manager for Wolters Kluwer Lien Solutions. “The Business Entity Search for CARES Act solution helps streamline the process to access CARES Act funds and keep our economy moving. We are pleased to be able to respond to vital market needs by providing this solution, which also helps ensure the necessary compliance and risk mitigation measures.”  

Business Entity Search for CARES Act is one of several solutions launched by Wolters Kluwer’s Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) division in response to the COVID-19 crisis. These include Paycheck Protection Program supported by TSoftPlus™, which helps banks and credit unions process loans to support small businesses with payroll funding, and the COVID-19 Noteworthy Developments Bulletins, which aggregates COVID-19 related global regulatory changes, orders, notices and other informational updates for the financial services industry. The division has also launched a COVID-19 resource center to provide businesses and law firms with international, federal and state legislative updates.

The Wolters Kluwer Lien Solutions product suite includes iLien, a SaaS platform that serves a crucial purpose during this time of social distancing and work-from-home protocols. iLien provides one-stop access to more than 3,000 U.S. jurisdictions at the state and county level. The solution allows bank employees to search electronic records, and retrieve bankruptcy and litigation filings, corporate entity records, judgements, and existing federal and state tax liens. Because iLien is web-based, it can be accessed by any member of a lender’s staff and from anywhere.

Wolters Kluwer Lien Solutions, part of the company’s GRC division, is the leading technology and service provider of comprehensive lien management, debtor due diligence, monitoring, and risk management solutions to financial professionals. The iLien suite of products addresses solutions for asset-backed loans, real-estate, and vehicle title processing and management to help simplify complexity in lien lifecycle management, resulting in more confident lending decisions.
