HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Experts with Wolters Kluwer’s Lien Solutions business will share insights, “Three Key Lessons for Auto Lenders from 2020,” at 1:30 EDT on Tuesday, October 20, Auto Finance Summit’s 2020 Virtual Experience, October 20-22.

As the COVID pandemic has unfolded, auto lenders have faced unprecedented challenges with properly perfecting titles to protect their vehicle collateral. Remote work, jurisdictional closures and subsequent backlogs, new jurisdictional forms and rules, an increase in repossessions, and new opportunities in refinancing have all impacted the way auto lenders perform vehicle titling.

Wolters Kluwer presenters Erin McCarty, Director of Product Management, and Marina Hardy, Marketing Associate Director, will discuss key learnings for auto lenders that will change their auto titling workflows going forward.

Among these learnings, COVID-impacted Department of Motor Vehicle delays persist. Session attendees will learn about managing titling delays, work-around options and automation for previously manual processes. Given that repossessions are on the rise, lenders must consider process optimization and scale their teams accordingly to ensure proper repo titling, evaluating jurisdictional footprint impacts, risk exposures, and addressing portfolio exceptions. Additionally, the session will look at the auto refinancing sector, which has seen healthy growth during COVID and could present opportunity for many lenders.
