Figlo and Yellowtail launch extensive mortgage pre-indication

Oct 27, 2021

Together with Rulecube, Figlo and Yellowtail have developed a pre-indication for mortgages. This innovation offers instant insight into the latent feasibility of a mortgage at any stage of the mortgage advice process. It is currently used within advice software Figlo by a pilot group of advisors. The Mortgage Indication enables mortgage advisors to gain more certainty about the eligibility of the final mortgage application.

Figlo has implemented the Mortgage Indication in Figlo Mortgages. “The uncertainty about the feasibility of a mortgage is seen as a great obstacle by clients and advisors. But with the Mortgage Indication, we are taking a considerable step forward in solving this problem.”, says Nathan Brouwer, Enterprise Account Executive at Figlo.

“I expect both clients and advisors to appreciate this immensely. More certainty earlier in the process will provide peace and confidence in the otherwise stressful process of a mortgage application.”

This solution was realized by Yellowtail Conclusion using Rulecube, a low-code API and business rule platform. An impressive total of 200 acceptance rules are defined using Rulecube, while MoneyView provides the factual input for these acceptance rules. The mortgage advisor can then tell how feasible the application is from a simple traffic light system in Figlo mortgages. The application continuously runs the data by the acceptance rules throughout the advice process. Alerts generated by Rulecube indicate which areas still need attention from the advisor.

Wider availability

A launching enterprise customer has already started using the Mortgage Indication. The true value of this innovation is in the amount of data and rules involved in the validation. The main objective is to make the mortgage application process faster and more efficient. Making the validation part of the generic Figlo Mortgages product allows Figlo and Yellowtail to offer this innovation to a broader audience.

Matthijs Mons, managing director at Yellowtail Conclusion: “We are pretty proud of this innovation, particularly because we’ve achieved this in a concise timeframe, thanks to the great collaboration with all parties involved.”. Nathan Brouwer adds: “Of course, we want to make this technology available to all our clients. Soon, independent advisors can choose to expand their license with this module. The same goes for our enterprise clients; we want the entire industry to profit from this development.”

The Mortgage Indication will be actively used in a select group of advice branches starting in October. Figlo, Yellowtail, and Rulecube will expand the functionalities in the upcoming months. They indicate to look forward to the next steps in making the advice process easier and faster.
