Orchard Platform Launches Data Partner Program for Loan Originators
Program benefits include peer benchmarking, data quality, and counterparty reporting
Today we announced the launch of the Orchard Data Partner Program, which includes loan data from a range of leading online lenders. The Orchard Data Partner Program is part of the Orchard for Originators product suite. The suite provides unbiased third-party validation of the internal consistency and quality of an originator’s data. Through the Orchard Data Partner Program, qualifying originators will gain the ability to analyze and compare their loan performance to that of their peers (on an aggregated and anonymized basis), and share their data in a consistent and transparent manner with new and existing capital providers.
This is a game-changer for our origination partners, because they now gain assurance that their datasets are verified and complete, while investors gain access to consistent and standardized datasets. The due diligence process that originators face when dealing with institutional investors has become more difficult and time-consuming. The Orchard Data Partner Program supports their ability to maintain investor confidence and execute with greater transparency at scale.
Even our investor partners agree. “The ability to seamlessly access standardized loan-level data from originators through Orchard can support investors’ ability to seek to transact more efficiently,” said Carlos Nogueira, investment team member at VanEck Associates Corporation. “We are big supporters of online lending and are pleased to see the ecosystem mature in a robust manner that provides enhanced disclosure and insights”.
The Orchard Data Partner Program currently tracks over $33B in loan originations. Orchard performs hundreds of ongoing quality assurance and quality control checks from a range of qualified consumer unsecured and small business originators. If the underlying data is the source of an issue, Orchard will work with the originator to quickly resolve it. Quality check reports disclosing summary-level and detailed loan-level results are provided to originators in order to proactively address potential issues. The Orchard Data Partner Program is a unique offering that helps originators maintain their commitment to delivering quality products to borrowers and investors.
