After recent success in delivering smoother and quicker customer journeys within second charge lending, Nivo ID Passporting will be made available to Bridging lenders, brokers, and qualified finance solicitors, allowing them to work from shared central identity information.

Using the technology, these partners will be able to digitally share a central copy of a customer’s personal information and identity data, making deal times faster, safer and easier, especially in the face of the social challenges presented by COVID-19. The data is ‘owned’ by the customer, who has complete control over providing consent to allow for any particular service provider on the Nivo network to view it.While maintaining social distancing, providers without a digital solution to verify identities will face barriers onboarding customers and sending sensitive documents given the physical challenges of using couriers and post.At the same time, there has been a 400% increase in fraud since March as criminals seek to exploit increased usage of personal email for the sharing of sensitive information. Nivo ID Passporting is a convenient solution that allows all parties to ensure they can fulfill KYC requirements, share sensitive data securely and work remotely, all while shaving days off their deal cycle.

Optimum Credit and Freedom Finance were the first to go live with Nivo ID Passporting in the second charge market, with the results proving a significant reduction in customer effort and the time it takes to deliver a loan.

Polly Taylor-Pullen, Business Development at Nivo states,

By launching this feature, we’re excited to be helping leading players in the Bridging industry to take things one step further.”
