According to debitum terms, if a loan comes with buyback guarantee that means: after 90 days of deferred payment, the loan originator buys back the claim you as the investor has with the borrower. Additionally, penalties will be applied if the borrower does not pay back after 15 days of a due date.
Available as: Credit score, Risk score
Risk scoring ranges from A+ (best) to F (worst).
Debitum checks every loan originator upon onboarding and after that every quarter. The loan originator must provide the cash flow data off all loans. That includes interest rates, term, payment schedule, commissions and others. The loans data is analyzed along with the overall loan originator's financial data for the last three years. Debitum then evaluates whether there are no collection issues that would be reflected on the loan book, investigates extraordinary loans, measures the stability of the portfolio, and performs stress tests on the financials of the loan originator. Finally, debitum follows up questions with the loan originator. The loan originator ultimately must be capabable to uphold the buyback guarantees towards the investors.
