New York, NY (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
Topping off 2012, cloud-based lending solutions provider LendKey (formerly Fynanz) signed seven new credit union clients in December 2012 bringing its client total to 232. This latest flurry of activity signifies that more credit unions are looking to new asset classes to enhance their current loan portfolios. As a result, these new credit union clients will leverage LendKey’s cloud-based lending solution to develop, launch and support their own self-branded private student loan programs, or leverage the CUSO managed cuStudentLoans participation network.
LendKey’s December 2012 signings include:
“Partnering with LendKey gives us another option to expand our lending portfolio through student loans,” says Patricia Edinger, CEO of Buffalo Metropolitan Federal Credit Union. “We’re always looking for new ways to help our members with their lending needs and LendKey certainly provides us with the means to meet these goals for them.”
“We look forward to working closely with LendKey to bring new lending opportunities to our members,” says Vickie van der Have, CEO of Weber State Federal Credit Union. “We feel their technology and expertise in student loans will help us achieve our lending goals in 2013 and beyond, which allows for increased growth. Ultimately, that growth equates to greater value in our members’ eyes. That’s great news for our bottom line and our members’ academic futures.”
“It’s very positive to end the year on a high note like we did this past December,” said Jim Merrill, SVP of Sales for LendKey. “2012 was an extremely busy and successful year of serving the private student lending needs of credit unions and debunking many of the myths associated with the private student lending industry. We also endured a major repositioning and rebranding effort that I think will bring more value to our company in 2013 and in the ensuing years. It also bodes well for our clients, providing them with a cloud-based lending engine that will surely enhance their portfolios well into the future.”
