COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 pandemic has a moderate impact on the mortgage lending industry as some lenders struggled to keep up with the workload and had no choice but to raise rates. In addition, mortgage debt represents the single largest source of debt for individual homeowners and had a significant impact on their financial situation and capacity to maintain financial stability in the face of pay reductions or wage loss. Moreover, mortgages are frequently the biggest asset that lenders have in their retail banking portfolio, thus changes in originations, repayment plans, and default rates had a big influence on their profitability and liquidity during the pandemic. Furthermore, the initiatives such as the suitability of products offered to consumers, a growing focus on transparency and information provision, the imposition of requirements to support responsible lending by focusing on the borrower's ability to repay and restrictions on the amount of the loan relative to asset value and income has helped the market grow during crisis.

Top Impacting Factors

Shorter loan application processes

Mortgage lending aims to approve loan applications within 24 hours. The application usually takes less time as mortgage finance application involves filling out an online form, sending a few documents via email, and chatting through terms of loan. With this short application process, small business owners can easily apply for mortgage loan. The mortgage lender uses these documents and decides if borrowers qualify for their financing. If the borrower qualifies, lenders then use this information to determine the loan amount. Moreover, mortgage lending provides cash injection that borrowers need to invest in new equipment, meet payroll, or afford other business expenses. Therefore, this factor propels the growth of the market.

Increased focus toward digitalizing lending process

Digitization has been one of the most widely adopted strategies in financial services to improve core processing capabilities and offer better consumer services and insights. In addition, FinTech organizations have reportedly increased their sales percentage by focusing on digitalization of their financial services. A study has revealed that investments in financial technologies witnessed an impressive growth in 2018, which was almost twice that of 2015. In addition, more than half of these investments have been associated with lending and payments. Digitization in lending landscape has helped FinTech and their customers for better loan management decisions as well as rapid application and disbursement process. Thus, increase in focus of organizations on digitalizing their lending process to achieve business efficiency and enhanced outcomes drives the growth of the global mortgage lending market.  

Access to large sums of money

Small business owners often do not have the financial capability to raise funding in the debt or equity markets. This can make starting a business extremely expensive and risky. However, with a mortgage lending, it is possible to cover all business startup expenses with availing mortgage loan. This also makes it significantly less intimidating for business owners without extensive resources to obtain a relatively large amount of funding. In addition, by consolidating all financing on one loan, mortgage lending helps to access large sum of money for small businesses. Therefore, this is a major driving factor for the mortgage lending market.
