FEDERAL HOME LOAN BANKS: ACCEPT E-SIGNED
LOANS AS COLLATERAL
VALUE STATEMENT (EFFECT ON ESRA MISSION)
Opportunity (future state)
Opportunity for ESRA to advance its mission by gaining additional acceptance of eSignatures in Government / Banking
FHLBank currently requires ALL original documents related to the note to be retained and to contain a “wet” signature. We understand that many members are using or exploring the use of digital record retention systems and electronic signatures to execute loan documents, and we agree the practices are generally accepted as legally binding. However, our concern relates to the transferability of the loan, specifically our ability to liquidate the asset, if needed, and the marketability of the loan to prospective buyers.Education, outreach and “moral-suasion” to move the FHLBs toward ultimately releasing a policy of eSignature acceptance.
Phase 1: FHLB influencers and decision makers understand the value of eSignatures and express their support for developing a new policy to define their for support and acceptance. Phase 2: FHLBs actually develop and release said policy.
