Cov-lite Loan Controversy Fades To Whisper While Portfolio Managers Chase Yield – Forbes

English: The door to the walk-in vault in the ...

The market is what it is and we have to go with whats out there. Still, its a matter of debate as to whether the superior performance of cov-lite loans during the 2007-08 default cycle is repeatable. Cov-lite apologists rely on data from that cycle showing that first lien cov-lite loans defaulted at a lower rate than the overall market, and, when they defaulted provided better recoveries, according to a special report published by DDJ Capital Management , citing data from Moodys Investors Service and S&P Leveraged Commentary & Data . But a host of factors imply that the market should not necessarily expect a repetition in the next cycleof any superior performance stats the 2008 cycle spawned, and that isolating a cov-lite effect is virtually impossible, several investors noted in interviews with Debtwire . For one, the drastic central bank intervention in the financial system beginning in 2008 quickly stabilized then helped improve the economy. That action, which helped cut off distress before it pushed more levered companies into restructuring, is unlikely to be repeated in future cycles. The differences between then and now also include the quality of the cov-lite component of the market which has broadened substantially. During the last cycle, cov-lite was largely the province of borrowers with better credit ratings that investors could justify didnt even really need the looser structures, sources agreed. Now cov-lite loans are accessible for most levered issuers. In 2006 and 2007, only 24.5 percent and 32.7% percent of cov-lite issuers were rated single-B or below, compared with 57% last year, said the DDJ report.

Everyone has role in fighting loan sharks

In my case, my student loan originally started with Sallie Mae, and then ended up with FedLoan. When my loan was transferred from Sallie Mae to FedLoan, I had to change all of my automatic payments that I had setup through Sallie Mae those didnt transfer. I also had to re-sign up for online statements so that I could continue to qualify for an interest rate reduction (a hassle, but worth the savings). The trouble is, there is a lag time in these notifications, and you, as the borrower, dont always know where your loan is. In my case, FedLoan processed a payment via the new direct debit I setup, but on their backend, my loan wasnt fully transferred. As a result, they didnt post the payment, and put my loan into delinquency status. But they did take my payment my bank statement and an email confirmation proved it. They just didnt credit it. Needless to say, it took weeks to get it resolved, and it could have potentially damaged my credit score due to having a late payment.

« Right now, they face an extra tax. » The Banking on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act would allow student borrowers to refinance their loans to 3.86 percent interest — the level matching the level set by Congress last year for new borrowers and would be paid for by enacting the so-called Buffett Rule that eliminates a tax loophole allowing millionaires to pay low tax rates. « Young women are hit by a double whammy by ever-increasingly high student debt, » Mikulski said. « They deserve a fair shot at higher education they can afford. » Research has showed that, despite the continued value of holding a college degree, the rising costs have weighed increasingly heavily on America’s young people. Rohit Chopra, the student loan ombudsman at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, testified before the Budget Committee Wednesday that multiple studies have found student debt has kept an entire generation from buying homes, starting businesses and saving for retirement. Richard Vedder, the director for the Center of College Affordability and Productivity, argued the problem was not mounting debt — at least not directly. Vedder, who was invited by the ranking member to testify, said the student loan programs have caused college tuitions to skyrocket beyond the pace of inflation as schools happily collect federal dollars to build expensive facilities and court donors. « Without massive federal aid programs, I doubt we would have so many million dollar university presidents, » Vedder testified, arguing the entire student loan program should be dismantled. Stabenow said Vedder — and by extension, Republicans — had the whole thing backwards. Most students don’t have the option to ask their parents to pay tens of thousands of dollars a year for tuition, and rely solely on loans and other aid to afford a college education.

Is Your Student Loan Servicer Ruining Your Credit? – Forbes


Making borrowing a crime may discourage borrowers from reporting loan-shark harassment or coming forward to seek help. In turn, this may result in an increase in loan-shark harassment. A better approach would be to partner family service centres and voluntary welfare organisations to educate the public on the dangers of borrowing from loan sharks. In Britain, some primary and secondary schools include this topic in their character and citizenship syllabus. Children are also taught the difference between debt and credit, and how to manage their money wisely. The hope is that the children can share what they have learnt with their parents, who can then make better financial decisions. Of course, parents too have a role to play in educating their children not to take part in loan-sharking activities. They can remind their children of the severity of the offences and intervene if their children display signs of involvement. TV advertisements can serve a similar warning role. Perhaps there could be a documentary where former loan-shark borrowers talk about their experiences. A lighter sentence should be considered for those who call the « X Ah Long » hotline (« Sentence lightened for loan shark runner who called hotline »; Oct 31, 2012).

Loan Company Demands Payment, Family Has Proof They Already Paid – ABC News


It took about a month, but eventually Ocwen was able to get your account properly credited and remove the threat of foreclosure. Robert Kaltenbach, director of Ocwen’s office of the ombudsman, told us that everything should be fine going forward, though the company never gave us an explanation for why this happened. You said the story you got was that when they took over the loan, someone apparently inputted the terms into their system incorrectly. From there, it spiraled out of control, resulting in the supposed late payments and $7,098.75 in mysterious added « fees/expenses. » You are correct that Ocwen has had bigger troubles than this. In March, a federal judge finalized a consent judgment between Ocwen and the U.S. Consumer and Financial Protection Bureau, 49 states and the District of Columbia over allegations that Ocwen deceived consumers about their loans and engaged in illegal foreclosures. The company did not admit any wrongdoing, but it agreed to provide $2 billion in principal reduction to consumers with underwater loans and refund $127.3 million to consumers who were foreclosed upon. Under the terms of the settlement, Ocwen also said it will adhere to a number of consumer protection measures. One last note — you said the Ocwen rep assured you that the correct payment history will be sent to the credit reporting bureaus.
