New applications for the Securities-Backed Line of Credit (SBLOC) should be submitted using the TALEA® loan automation platform.

Highlights of the TALEA process flow:

  • The financial professional/admin initiates the loan via TALEA, and the financial professional/admin/client completes questionnaire process.
  • The Bancorp receives, via DocuSign, the loan application/document package from the client with the client signatures.
  • The Bancorp will complete the underwriting process and book the loan.
  • Your client will then receive two Welcome letters/emails with a password and user ID (separated for security reasons) and detailed instructions for logging into
  • After a loan is established, statements are produced monthly only if there is an outstanding balance on the line of credit account.  Click here to see a sample.

The other account may be with Cash Advantage or another organization which offers banking services through The Bancorp Bank, N.A. The client will not receive new login credentials for this account nor will they be prompted to change the password.
