/EIN News/ — ALMATY, Kazakhstan, March 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bank Freedom Finance Kazakhstan JSC announces that it has digitized mortgage loans by 90%. At the same time, in leading countries such as Finland, South Korea, Sweden and the United States, the level of digitization of mortgage products reaches just over 30%. In the UK it is 55%.

The 2020 UN study examined 193 countries according to their level of e-government development (E-Government Development Index). This index is made up of the arithmetic mean of three indicators: the extent and quality of online services, the level of development of telecommunications infrastructure and the quantity of human capital.

Denmark, South Korea, Estonia, Finland, Australia, Sweden, Great Britain, New Zealand, the United States and the Netherlands topped the list of the most digitized. Kazakhstan was ranked 29th, with first place among CIS countries.

To understand the level of digitization of the mortgage process, the major banks in the above countries were studied in terms of digitization. The following mortgage origination steps have been reviewed and tested: application – pre-approval – real estate appraisal – decision – execution of the transaction – signing of documents – registration of pledge – immediate disbursement – post-service. The analysis showed that the international examples used a hybrid scheme – where online processes are combined with offline ones.

In the digital mortgage of Kazakhstan, all stages are digitized except for the last one, when a meeting with a notary is required to sign the purchase and sale contract. This cannot be done remotely under the law of the Republic of Kazakhstan. But even with the last step, mortgage processing takes a day. No paper documents are required – the system itself collects them from state databases, the real estate valuation is carried out online, the pledge is registered remotely, and an electronic digital signature can be issued at the course of the process.

Oi Yee Choo

Singapore Stock Exchange-backed private market platform ADDX has announced that Oi-Yee Choo will be appointed chief executive, subject to approval by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).

The ADDX platform was founded in 2017 and began full trading operations in 2020 after becoming one of the first digital stock exchanges to graduate from the MAS Fintech Regulatory Sandbox. Leading the company into its next phase of growth, Ms. Choo predicts that the ADDX platform will see $1 billion in trades by 2023, cementing its position as Asia’s largest private market exchange.

“Achieving critical mass will indicate that we are the primary meeting place for any issuer or investor looking to trade private markets investments. This will strengthen our ability to achieve our mission of ensuring fair and equal access to private markets for all – including, ultimately, retail investors,” she said.

“The end game is a much better world than the one we live in – truly diversified portfolios not just for sovereign wealth funds and pension funds, but for everyone on the street. Barriers to capital flows will be significantly reduced, allowing funds to reach the most worthy projects.This generates innovation, economic growth, jobs and revenue for the government.

Ms Choo joined the firm as Chief Commercial Officer in January 2020, leaving UBS, where she was Head of Investment Banking for Singapore. MAS approval is sought for ADDX Pte Ltd, a newly created entity which Ms Choo will lead as CEO, to operate the ADDX platform. ADDX Pte Ltd is wholly owned by parent company ICHX Tech, which will continue to operate the ADDX platform under existing licenses until new MAS approvals are obtained for ADDX Pte Ltd. Following Ms. Choo’s appointment, Mr. Danny Toe, who served as the head of the ADDX platform through ICHX Tech, will remain CEO of ICHX Tech 1 . With over 20 years of capital markets experience at banks – including Morgan Stanley, Nomura and Citigroup – Ms. Choo has worked on notable M&A and IPO transactions including the listing of Suntec REIT and Parkway Life REIT on the Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX).

Other new appointments include Darius Liu and Inmoo Hwang. Mr. Liu, who was Chief Operating Officer, is now Group Chief Strategy Officer of ICHX Tech. Mr. Hwang, who was previously responsible for business strategy and growth, will take over as COO of ADDX Pte Ltd. The company expects its permanent workforce to grow to 120 this year, up from 90 at the end of 2021.

Total transactions on the ADDX platform exceeded US$150 million in 2021, and the lion’s share came from accredited individual investors from 27 countries spanning Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Americas (excluding the United States). The pace of expansion is expected to accelerate further in 2022 and 2023, with the imminent launch of institutional and corporate investor accounts, and individual account openings now growing at a rate of 120% per year. By 2023, the total number of transactions concluded on the ADDX platform is expected to increase at least four times to reach 100, compared to 24 transactions concluded at the end of 2021.

“We are building the Amazon of private markets – the first step investors think about when considering alternative investments, because they know they will find a full range of products here with varying risk-reward profiles,” said Ms Choo.

The multi-asset exchange has integrated funds, bonds and stocks. Asset classes represented by products on the platform include private equity and venture capital, private debt, real estate, hedge funds, and crypto funds. The ADDX platform will onboard more global general partners (GPs) this year, having launched deals last year by blue-chip names including Partners Group, UOB, Investcorp, Mapletree, Azalea, SeaTown and CGS-CIMB .

Using blockchain and smart contracts, the ADDX platform automates the manual processes of issuance, custody, distribution and secondary trading of private market products. The efficiency resulting from tokenization allows the platform to split investments from $1 million to $10,000. For issuers, the digital securities exchange provides access to previously untapped pools of capital and reduces both the cost and the minimum threshold of fundraising projects. In January 2021, ICHX Tech, which operates the ADDX platform, announced its US$50 million Series A. The fintech is backed by the Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX), Temasek subsidiary Heliconia Capital and Japanese state-backed investors JIC Venture Growth Investments (JIC-VGI) and the Development Bank of Japan (DBJ) 2 . Last year, the ADDX platform was named by CB Insights Blockdata company as one of the top nine tokenization platforms in the world – it was the only Asian platform to make the list.

Ms Choo said: “Yields in the public markets are gradually falling. For a traditional 70-30 mix of stocks and government bonds, returns are expected to fall from over 6% per year for baby boomers to just 2% per year for Gen Z 4 . Large institutional investors see this trend and they have the tools to diversify into private markets, which now represent 20-30% of their portfolios. Not allowing individuals to diversify in the same way is – to put it bluntly – unconscionable. This essentially means that a younger generation of investors should not expect a decent rate of return, implying that they will have to stay in the workforce much longer to meet their retirement needs. ADDX was founded to change that. We refuse to accept the status quo of an uneven playing field, and we intend to partner with regulators and issuers around the world to transform the investment landscape.

Well-positioned BC buildings thanks to electrification push

A new construction finance program from Vancity Credit Union encourages green buildings through preferential lending terms.

Vancity quietly launched the low-carbon construction financing pilot late last year. An online information session on March 9, sponsored by the Zero Emissions Building Exchange in partnership with the Urban Development Institute and green design collaboration LFV Solutions, will mark its public debut.

“What we’re trying to do with [the program] is to try to encourage low-emission and more climate-resilient buildings,” said Alison Coates, director, climate strategy and performance, at Vancity. “As part of this, we will seek to encourage the construction of a building without using fossil fuels for heating, water heating and cooking, and we will also look at embodied carbon and… [consider] future climate scenarios.

Buildings that do not require fossil fuels for heating or cooking (except in emergencies) will be eligible for preferred financing terms, including reduced interest rates and fees, extended amortization periods and higher loan-to-cost ratios.

Buildings designed with 2050 climate projections and those that submit life cycle carbon assessments will also be eligible for preferential financing terms.

Coates hopes next week’s briefing will generate interest from builders who would like to take advantage of the program.

The initiative aligns with Vancity’s participation in the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials, which was established three years ago. PCAF includes 228 financial institutions worldwide that have committed to measuring and disclosing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in their loan investments. It includes 15 Canadian-based lenders managing over $5.8 trillion in assets.

In addition to Vancity, the country’s five major banks, the BDC and the Investment Management Corporation of Ontario are members of the PCAF. BC Investment Management Corp., which manages the province’s public sector pension funds, is not a member, but has not ruled out the possibility of joining.

Vancity is among the lenders that have already issued statements regarding the investments. Its first statement, released last May, noted that its $18.6 billion in real estate-related loans represented the largest volume of issues tracked.

However, home loans were relatively healthy compared to auto loans. Vancity reported 9.6 tonnes of issuance per dollar of commercial real estate financing versus 179 tonnes per dollar attributed to auto loans.

“The advantage we have in BC is that we have a clean electricity supply, so the message is a little different,” Coates said. “It’s about electrification and switching.”

Vancity will release its second report this spring. RBC has committed to reporting the carbon emissions associated with its loans for this fiscal year in 2023.

Other institutions will follow, with funding terms promising to swing in favor of green buildings in the years to come.

“Today, GHG emissions have no discernible impact on the availability or cost of financing, but that is expected to change,” Paul Morassutti, vice president of brokerage CBRE Ltd, said this week. in the company’s 2022 outlook presentation. “[PCAF] will have significant impacts on commercial real estate as lenders will need to report and include GHG emissions for the assets on which they terminate. The price and availability of debt will reflect this.

the Shambhala Mountain Center in Larimer County filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this week as it restructures debt following pandemic-induced financial difficulties, the Shambhala Buddhism sexual misconduct scandal and the Cameron Peak fire.

The bankruptcy filing, filed Monday in federal court in Denver, follows the Buddhist retreat’s announcement last month that he is change its name to Drala Mountain Center after becoming an independent non-profit organization.

The center near Red Feather Lakes encountered financial difficulties in early 2019, in part due to shortfalls in program revenue caused by cancellations due to COVID-19 closures and the “crisis in the greater community of Shambhala,” according to a press release. Release.

The 2020 Cameron Peak Fire, the largest wildfire in Colorado’s recorded history, further hampered the center’s ability to generate revenue after a number of buildings and other infrastructure were destroyed.

According to its Chapter 11 filing, Shambhala Mountain Center and Wells Fargo Bank entered into a restructuring agreement on July 29, 2015, which consolidated all of the center’s outstanding debt into one secured loan of 4, $15 million. Wells Fargo commissioned an appraisal of the core real estate in the center and valued the property at $7.7 million, according to a document dated Dec. 10, 2020.

In May 2021, Wells Fargo sold the Shambhala Mountain Center secured loan to RH Fund XXII LLC, a manager of “distressed debt funds,” according to the Louisiana Bankruptcy filing.

The new debt holder did not agree to a request from the Shambhala Mountain Center to restructure the debt, leading to the filing of a protected bankruptcy reorganization case, according to the organization’s press release.

As part of the Chapter 11 filing, the Shambhala Mountain Center has a matching donation commitment of $500,000 from the Pema Chödrön Foundation, according to the press release. Other major donors have committed over $250,000 to the reorganization. The center is represented on a pro bono basis by Ropes & Gray, a global law firm.

The renamed Drala Mountain Center, or DMC, plans to continue operating at its Red Feather Lakes campus during the reorganization and expects the Chapter 11 process to be completed in about six months.

“We recognize the important role DMC plays in the lives of so many people, especially during these trying times when people are seeking restoration, refuge and inspiration,” executive director Michael Gayner said in a statement. “We look forward to fulfilling our mission of bringing people together to experience wisdom in the weeks and months to come, and for years to come.”

Shambhala, the Boulder-born Buddhist community now headquartered in Canada, was embroiled in scandal in 2018 following the publication of a report by a group called Buddhist Project Sunshine which brought sexual abuse allegations against Shambhala leader Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, who eventually resigned from his post. Third-party investigations commissioned by Shambhala have corroborated some of these claims.

A suite Denver Post survey found that Shambhala and its leaders had a decades-long history of suppressing allegations of abuse, including child molestation and cleric abuse, through the organization’s own internal processes.

Some of these accusations directly implicated the Shambhala Mountain Center, including allegations that center officials ignored calls for help. In 2018, the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office opened a criminal investigation in allegations of sexual misconduct by people connected to the center, although this case was closed in 2020 free of charge.

Following the publication of the Post’s investigation, leaders of the Shambhala Mountain Center issued a statement apologizing for their failure to appropriately address sexual misconduct and abuse at the meditation center.

In June 2020, Michael Smith, former member of the Boulder Shambhala Center, pleaded guilty to first-degree assault and attempted sexual assault of a child and was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Prosecutors alleged Smith sexually abused a girl – whom he met in the Shambhala community – on multiple occasions beginning in 1997.

Separate charges of sexual assault against a former Boulder Shambhala Center teacher have been filed. dismissed in October 2021.

Finding the right home improvement loan or home improvement loan can seem like a daunting prospect. It is essential to understand all parts of the loan, such as loan repayment terms and how interest rates can affect your payment. Without this information, owners could end up incurring debts that they may struggle to repay. Read on to find out how to get a home improvement loan to secure a loan deal you can afford to repay with confidence.

Before you start…

How to Get a Home Improvement Loan

Photo: istockphoto.com

A home improvement loan is money that homeowners borrow specifically for a home improvement project. This money can come from a home’s equity, or a homeowner can get the loan amount themselves separately. A homeowner would repay this money on a fixed schedule, plus associated interest and fees.

First, a homeowner can make sure he really needs the loan. For example, if the project is not essential at the moment, such as a luxury addition, someone might think about saving money from their monthly budget for a while to pay for the project directly. If you’re in a place where you’re comfortable taking out a loan, read the steps below to get a home improvement loan right.

STEP 1: Assess your finances.

The first step is to assess your financial situation and determine how much you can spend each month. Create a realistic monthly budget, which includes all outgoing expenses for each month, such as mortgage payments, utilities, food, entertainment, credit card payments, savings goals, and any other obligations. Then subtract that total from the amount of money you bring in as a household. This difference should reveal how much money you have to spare for a home improvement loan payment. You can also check your credit score, as this will affect the type of interest rate you might get. Lower credit scores often mean higher interest rates. You can get your credit score in several ways: you can get it through your credit card lender, use a service like Credit Karma, or even just get the credit score through the lender you you may be considering opting out. These methods tend to be free and won’t hurt your credit score. You can also get a free copy of your credit report once a year from each of the three major credit bureaus (TransUnion, Equifax, and Experian).

Many home improvement loans also use your home itself as collateral for the loan, such as home equity loans or home equity lines of credit (HELOC). Using your home as collateral means that if you can’t repay the loan, the lender can repossess your home to make up for the money you haven’t repaid. But these loans allow you to borrow money based on the equity in your home. If you’re considering these options, you can also talk to your mortgage lender about your current home equity and how much they recommend borrowing. Typically, a new mortgage has a payment that goes mostly toward interest, not principal, and you may not yet have enough equity to borrow.

How to Get a Home Improvement Loan

STEP 2: Learn about your home improvement loan options and their costs.

In general, there are six types of loans people can access to help with home improvement costs, all of which work differently. As mentioned above, two types are home equity loans and home equity lines of credit (HELOC). You repay the borrowed amount, usually as a monthly payment over a set period of time. You’ll also have fees and interest built into your monthly payment; the amount of interest depends on home improvement loan rates. The difference between a home equity loan and a home equity line of credit is how the loan is disbursed: the loan is a lump sum with a home equity loan, and the HELOC is a revolving loan amount that you can use according to your needs.

How to get a renovation loan without equity? A personal loan can be an option: It is simply a loan of a certain amount of money. Homeowners who choose a personal loan can repay the loan amount gradually on a monthly schedule, plus any interest and fees. An advantage of this type of loan is that you are not using your home as collateral like with a home equity loan or HELOC. Likewise, you can also consider using credit cards if the project is smaller. However, credit cards are not the best option if the amount needed is large; you may end up pushing your credit limits too high. But if you only need a few hundred to a few thousand dollars for materials because you’re the do-it-yourself type, you might consider using credit cards.

Two other options are cash refinancing and an FHA 203(k) rehabilitation loan. Cash-out refinancing means that you take money out of your home equity and then refinance your mortgage to pay off that amount plus the loan balance. The FHA 203(k) Rehab Loan is offered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and is intended for repairs to older homes that need upgrading. A lesser-known route is also to seek home repair grants through the US Department of Agriculture.

STEP 3: Decide which type of home improvement loan is best for you and your project.

All of the different types of home improvement loans work for very specific situations. For example, a home equity loan would be best if you have significant equity in your home or have even paid off the house. If you have a lot of wiggle room in your monthly budget and have a good chance of repaying that loan, a home equity loan may be a good option. It is also a good choice for people who need a large amount of money for a huge project because the loan is in one amount. For a HELOC, similar advice applies, but the revolving line of credit means you can use as much money as you need when you need it, making it better for smaller or ongoing projects. . Plus, you only pay interest on the amount of money used, not the total amount you have.

For people who do not have significant equity in their home, or those who are uncomfortable with the idea of ​​using their home as collateral against the loan, personal loans or credit cards will the best option. Consider a personal loan for larger projects, as you often get a lump sum as part of the loan. Similarly, cash-out refinance and the FHA 203(k) rehab loan work in specific situations, such as if you’re looking to refinance your mortgage or have a repairman on your hands. Consider using a home improvement loan calculator to help determine payments.

STEP 4: Talk to potential lenders and compare your options.

Finally, look at the loans themselves. For home equity loans and HELOCs, your current lender is a reference. You can see what they offer for home improvement loans, and since you are already borrowing through them, they might offer you an offer on fees and interest rates. However, you can check with other lenders for their terms. Online lending companies, physical lending companies, banks, and credit unions are all options to consider. Financing your real estate project with credit cards is the easiest option, as there are a variety of well-known credit cards to consider. To get cash refinance, you need to go to banks, credit unions, or loan companies, often those that specialize in mortgages. The FHA 203(k) rehabilitation loan is offered by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), but you will work with an FHA-approved lender to apply for this type of loan. How to get a home improvement loan with bad credit? If this is your case, you can discuss your situation with individual lenders. Some even specialize in working with people who have bad credit.

STEP 5: Apply for your loan.

Once you’ve decided what type of loan is right for you and where the home improvement loan is coming from, it’s time to start the application process. Is it hard to get a home improvement loan? This process varies greatly, depending on which home improvement loan you choose. Work closely with the lender to make sure they provide all the information you need. Lenders also need information, and it’s common for lenders to require personal information about you, especially during the application process and sometimes before. They may require pay stubs from the last 30 days, W-2 forms, signed federal tax returns, documents from other sources of income, bank statements, social security numbers, proof of identity, and possibly other documents. Make sure your information is accurate and complete, as incorrect information could result in the application being denied. Your personal situation may even affect the documents you need to provide, for example if you are self-employed, have irregular income or have non-wage income.

By following these steps on how to get a home improvement loan, you can enter the loan application process more informed, prepared and confident. Ultimately, it pays to know the types of legitimate loans and the types of lenders to work with. Knowing which home improvement loans are best for your plans and finances can also save you from a situation where you are putting an unnecessary strain on your budget.

Mortgage rates are on the rise and that means homeowners should be prepared for a big increase in their monthly repayments.

The emergency monetary stimulus provided by the Reserve Bank when Covid first hit pushed already low mortgage rates to historic lows.

But last year, the Reserve Bank began reversing that stimulus and raised the official exchange rate (OCR) from 0.25% in August to 0.75% in November.

Next week he will issue his first monetary policy statement of the year, and there is strong consensus that he will raise the OCR by 25 basis points, to 1%.

And most economists don’t expect it to stop there. ANZ and Westpac economists are picking OCR to hit 3% by the middle of next year.

For homeowners, this means that mortgage rates have already risen sharply from the low to mid 2% range at the end of last year.

Standard one-year fixed rates at the big four banks and Kiwibank now range from 3.85 to 4.54%, while standard two-year fixed rates range between 4.15 and 5.20%.

Further hikes are expected, although there are question marks over their magnitude, as economists say markets have already forecast a substantial number of hikes over the next few years.

Mortgage rates are on the rise and that means homeowners will have to pay a lot more every month.

Mortgage rates are on the rise and that means homeowners will have to pay a lot more every month.

But what does this mean for the average homeowner and their monthly repayments?

Based on typical mortgage rate forecasts here, we calculated the numbers on what homeowners are likely to pay, using the amount owed at $100,000. This allows for easy multiplication by the value of individual mortgages.

The typical forecast is that the one-year fixed rate will hit the low 5% range over the next two years. Economist Tony Alexander predicts that the one-year fixed rate will be 4.75% next February and 5.25% in February 2024, for example.

Mortgages Online director Hamish Patel says many people exiting their current mortgage terms this year have rates around 2.5%. At this rate, monthly repayments on a $100,000 loan over 30 years are $395.

But if the rate goes up to 4.50%, the monthly repayments amount to $507. At 5.0% they are $537, and at Alexander’s forecast of 5.25% they will be $552.

When this is applied to the national median price, which the latest Real Estate Institute figures put at $880,000 in January, it shows just how big the increase can be for those with large loans.

Mortgages Online director Hamish Patel thinks most mortgage holders will be able to manage rates of five per cent.

Provided/Provided

Mortgages Online director Hamish Patel thinks most mortgage holders will be able to manage rates of five per cent.

Assuming a 20% deposit for a home loan at the national median price, monthly repayments at 2.50% would be $2,782. If the rate went to 5.25%, monthly repayments would be $3,888.

Of the major centers, Auckland has the highest property prices. The current median price in the area is $1.2 million, according to the Real Estate Institute.

With a 20% down payment, the monthly repayments of the 2.50% loan would be $3,793. At 5.25%, they would rise to $5,301.

While the repayment increases are significant, Patel says most mortgage holders will be able to manage rates of 5% as banks test borrowers’ ability to make repayments at a higher rate. But that means there will be less spending in the economy.

Alexander also says he’s confident most people will get by, although they might be shocked at the amount of expenses for things like restaurant meals they have to cut to cover the rising costs. .

But CoreLogic released its latest housing affordability report on Friday, and it showed a sharp rise in mortgage repayments, with households taking out a new home loan now having to spend 48% of their income paying off an 80% mortgage.

CoreLogic’s chief real estate economist, Kelvin Davidson, said another 0.5-0.6% increase in a typical mortgage rate would take that affordability measure to the worst level on record.
