Federal Bank has tied up with institutional debt platform, CredAvenue for the portfolio management of its securitization book. The arrangement will help Federal Bank digitally monitor its ABS & MBS pool assets, enabled by CredAvenue’s end-to-end securitization and portfolio buyouts and fulfilment solutions platform, CredPool. The partnership entails CredAvenue providing post-transaction fulfilment services and portfolio management for its Direct Assignment portfolio.
Post-transaction fulfilment services are currently manual, and evaluation of asset quality is carried out only at the end of each quarter. Through the partnership, Federal Bank intends to utilize CredAvenue’s technology for real-time evaluation and digital monitoring capabilities for its securitization book.
CredAvenue’s pooled transaction fulfilment platform has been supporting a host of leading banks. The platform is helping banks & NBFCs meet prevailing and new regulatory guidelines pertaining to securitization and direct assignment.
Shalini Warrier, ED & Head Retail Business, Federal Bank, said, “The kind of environment we are in, it is always important to look for the right opportunities. Though we have scope to grow via the inorganic route with the right kind of mix, the platform capability is important to manage such a portfolio. This arrangement will help Federal Bank in standardizing and automating the securitization portfolio. Additionally, it will help the bank to evaluate and invest in the right opportunity based on the risk appetite.”
Gaurav Kumar, CEO, CredAvenue, said, “We provide a comprehensive debt ecosystem for originators (NBFC’s) and provide a complete fulfilment solution for all the lenders that are associated with us. Our technology has the capability to provide customized solutions based on each bank/lender’s requirements for their portfolio management. Our team ensures a quick and seamless integration with an easy-to-use interface for our partners.”
