Suggest ROE Increase Using Fees


For loans that meet or exceed the loan's target return and have an initial fee less than 5% of the loan amount, Andi® will recommend adjusting the initial fee to increase the loan's ROE. The percent increase to the loan's ROE (X%) will be configured in the skill settings and used to calculate the fee increase (Y%). The message displayed to the Relationship Manager is: Add Y% to the Initial Fees to increase the ROE to about Z% (Current ROE * X%). If the Relationship Manager chooses to adjust the initial fee, Andi® will continue offering recommendations for the initial fee until a ceiling of 5% is reached.

This article will cover configuring and testing the skill, and viewing and enabling it in PrecisionLender.

Note: You must configure this skill in the skills manager prior to using it in PrecisionLender.

Viewing the Skill in PrecisionLender

Shows the skill message in Andi

If the fees on the loan you're pricing exceeds the target return, Andi® will display the following message: 'Add X% to the Initial Fees to increase the ROE by X%'. This is the number that you've configured in the skills manager.

You can apply the suggestion Andi® has given by clicking on the message. This will update the applicable fields for you. 

Note: Always remember to save the opportunity to apply your changes.


Enabling the Skill in Production

After you've viewed and tested the skill, you are ready to enable the skill for the Production workgroup.

  • Navigate back to the skill details page for the skill you were testing and mark it as Ready For Production.
  • In the Status section, select Production and choose the version of the skill you're enabling from the dropdown. When the latest skill version is published by the skill owner, this will automatically be available for selection in the list.
  • Re-enter the skill configurations.
  • Select Save to enable the skill for the Production workgroup.

Note: After enabling the skill in Production, we recommend disabling it for the Testing workgroup.
