History of California Water
- Worsening cyclical droughts
- Millions of acre feet of allocations are diverted away from farms
- Laws cut off farms' access to groundwater
- Water districts and borrowers are left without answers
- Making the loan selling and underwriting process difficult
- Putting whole lending portfolios at retroactive risk
Many Are Far Behind
Lenders who rely on the old insufficient analysis of a property having two sources of water or who choose to spend hours of time researching complicated water topics see inefficiencies, loans default, have unsatisfied regulators, and even worse, unhappy borrowers.
While Others Are Ahead
Forward thinking lenders have already taken the lead. They use data to efficiently understand the risk factors facing their borrowers, quickly capture quality lending opportunities, and keep their regulators satisfied, all the while keeping their lending risk low.
