What does LoanStreet do?

What is a Loan Participation?
Loan participation is the process of selling a percentage of a previously originated loan for strategic balance sheet management purposes. Per National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) regulation, the originating party must retain at least 10% of the loan, but is free to sell participations to as many buyers as they need. Institutions typically sell loan participations to generate liquidity through gains on sale and servicing income, while buyers are most often looking to diversify their balance sheet and deploy excess capital.
