South African commercial property specialty lender selects nCino’s cloud banking platform to grow business and improve access to finance for property entrepreneurs in affordable housing.

JOHANNESBURG, 18 April 2023 – nCino, Inc. (NASDAQ: NCNO), a pioneer in cloud banking for the global financial services industry, today announced that TUHF has selected nCino’s cloud banking platform to improve the lending process for its customers and support the entire credit lifecycle journey across its commercial loan book. By partnering with nCino, TUHF will modernize its operations to achieve key business goals including increasing efficiency, driving growth, and reducing costs.

South Africa faces significant shortages in affordable, safe housing and huge urban sprawl. TUHF, as the leading impact investor in affordable housing in the country, makes a positive social impact by providing commercial property development loans to clients seeking to deliver affordable residential units where they are most needed in city townships. By utilizing nCino’s cloud banking platform, TUHF will be able to accelerate its lending processes and scale its business efficiently, to effectively increase its ability to drive urban densification and combat urban sprawl.

“TUHF’s goal is good business, and to do good by empowering entrepreneurs to transform the cities and townships of South Africa. We are confident that the nCino solution will provide the flexibility and scalability we need to achieve our growth ambitions,” said Paul Jackson, CEO at TUHF.

“We anticipate that the partnership with nCino will drive significant value for our clients while enabling us to stay aligned to our core values.”

TUHF sought an end-to-end technology partner that would provide cloud-native journeys for its clients and employees, helping to consolidate and streamline the lending process. nCino provides transparency and 360 customer view, offering a single source of truth across all stages of the lending journey, including loan origination, underwriting, credit sanctioning, disbursement, and in-life-cycle management.

“We’re excited to equip TUHF with the technology it needs to make a greater impact on the communities it serves,” said Kate Jane Johnsen, Regional Vice President at nCino. “As an agile solution, we trust that the nCino platform will deliver value to TUHF for many years to come, empowering the institution to improve its competitive advantage and continue making human connections with their clients who seek to make positive social impacts across South Africa.”
