What does a Processor do?

Processors work in banking in the finance industry and prepare loan files and submit them to banks or mortgage lenders for approval and processing. They are responsible for the interview, research, and assessment of prospective loan applicants during their loan application process, and they assist eligible applicants to obtain loans in a professional and timely manner.

Processors collect and verify the necessary and required financial documents and evaluate the information they have obtained to determine both the applicant’s need for a loan and their ability to repay it. They assess the credit standing of each applicant using background research and interviews to evaluate loan eligibility and create, renew, and retain applicant records. As the point person between the applicant and lender, a processor will ensure that all documents are appropriate and that signatures are correct and in order before further submitting forms. Processors need a bachelor's degree in accounting, finance, or related fields.
