Collateral Protection Insurance
Our CPI or Collateral Protection Insurance program is designed to protect both lending institutions and their borrowers.
If a borrower damages the collateral or has the collateral stolen or destroyed, will the borrower continue making loan payments? Or will the borrower stop making payments, create a collection problem, and ultimately cause a charge off?
Our partner program combines cutting-edge technology with superior attention to detail and outstanding client service — all to ensure you are provided confidence in your coverage.
