Andi® will calculate the Weighted Average Life (WAL) of a loan when asked 'What is the weighted average life?' or 'What is the wal?'. Andi® then responds with the projected WAL, a calculation that considers prepayment, and the contractual WAL. This article will cover testing the skill as well as viewing and enabling it in PrecisionLender.
