ABA endorses Akouba digital lending platform

The American Bankers Association – through its subsidiary the Corporation for American Banking – has endorsed the digital lending solution provided by Akouba, which provides community and regional banks with an origination and underwriting platform for small business loans. ABA members will receive preferred pricing.

Akouba is transforming the way banks help business owners through a cloud-based, white-labeled technology that provides business lending quickly, accurately and profitably. Akouba’s business lending platform provides banks with leading edge technology that integrates the bank’s own unique credit policies into a convenient, online process—from application to documentation— all the way to closing and funding. The bank uses its own credit policies, originates its own loans and owns the entire brand and customer relationship.

“The small business loan application process is very time-sensitive and costly for banks, and there is a need to simplify and accelerate the process,” said Bryan Luke, chairman of ABA’s Endorsed Solutions Banker Advisory Council. “Akouba was chosen because they have established an effective and reliable platform for banks to execute the business lending process quickly, efficiently and profitably while also delivering a great customer and banker experience.” Luke is also president and COO of Hawaii National Bank in Honolulu.

“In a rapidly changing lending environment, and with marketplace lenders disrupting the business lending space, our platform will help banks bring their customers the technology they have been lacking,” said Chris Rentner, CEO, Akouba. “The ABA’s endorsement will give lending institutions the assurance that Akouba’s solutions meet the highest standards.”

Prior to awarding the endorsement, the ABA conducted an extensive due diligence process, which included evaluation by Aditya Khurjekar, CEO of Let’sTalk Payments, and oversight from ABA’s Endorsed Solutions Banker Advisory Council. Careful evaluation led to this endorsement based on a number of factors including Akouba’s ability to assess and manage risk as well as comply with the FDIC’s proposed guidance for third-party lending to address common issues in the industry.
