Moody's Reassesses Six Independent Collection Agencies that Provide Collection Services of Low Delinquency Loan Pools to Infonavit in Mexico

 The document has been translated in other languages

19 Apr 2011

Mexico, April 19, 2011 -- Moody's de México S.A. de C.V. (Moody's) completed the annual formal re-assessment of six independent collection agencies that provide collection services for the Instituto del Fondo Nacional de la Vivienda para los Trabajadores (Infonavit). The collection agencies assessed manage loan pools originated by Infonavit. The loan pools that Infonavit assigns to these collection agencies are exclusively social interest mortgage loans with 30, 60 and 90 days of delinquency.

SUMMARY

Moody's assessment focused on each agency's roll over rates, on the call center and door-knocking performance metrics, on their ability to have in place reliable collection processes as well as on the vendors' capacities to improve their collections platform.

Compared to the last review, customer service levels tended to improve given that at least 80% of the collection agents are already certified in collection abilities. In Moody's opinion the vendors still have an opportunity area in lowering abandonment rates and improving average speed of answer in their respective call centers. Both issues would contribute to enhance customer satisfaction levels.

Also compared to the last review, collection contact rates have improved and the rate of promises kept has been higher. Moody's believes this is a result of collections strategies that combined call center and field collection campaigns. Moody's positively views the increased independence of call centers in order to implement their own collection strategies as well as the fact that they are evaluated according to the results of such strategies. Moody's positively views the use of GPS technology for the monitoring of field agents. However, it is important to keep close on-site monitoring of the call center and field agents. Similarly, Moody's would positively view a more comprehensive portfolio analysis and collection strategy preparation before the vendors assign the loans to the call center or field collections teams.

Over the past year the vendors continued strengthening their information technology platforms. Most of the vendors raised their information security standards by improving their back-up procedures, establishing alternative sites as well as by upgrading the accessibility and security measures of their sites. Moody's would positively view systematic annual tests to each vendor's business continuity and disaster recovery plans.

For a detailed explanation of each assessment please refer to the upcoming report "Moody's Assessment of Infonavit's Third-party Collection Agencies (Low Delinquency Loan Pools)."

The collection agencies reassessed are:

Grupo Actuarial y Servicios, S.A. de C.V. (ACSER)

Consorcio Jurídico de Cobranza Especializada, S.A. de C.V. (CJC)

Consorcio Jurídico Mendoza-Guzmán y Asociados, S.C. (CJM)

Consultores Profesionales Corporativos, S.C. (CPC)

Grupo de Administración de Bienes y Servicios, S.A. de C.V. (GABSSA)

Servicios Técnicos de Cobranza, S.A. de C.V. (SERTEC)

The following assessments reflect Moody's opinion only in connection with the servicing of Infonavit loans that are assigned to the vendors up to 90days of delinquency.

In assigning the assessments, Moody's considered the collection ability and operational stability of each vendor, but it did not take into account their financial stability.

GRUPO ACTUARIAL Y SERVICIOS, S.A. DE C.V. (ACSER)

Moody's downgraded Acser's overall assessment to Average -- (Average minus) from Average. The downgrade is mainly based on Acser´s below average roll over rates. Compared to other vendors Acser was not as effective in improving the delinquency status of a significant share of the loans across the delinquency buckets analyzed by Moody´s.

Moody's considers Acser´s collection abilities as below average. Acser has a well structured and experienced field collections team, which can implement door knocking campaigns in an average of two days, in contrast to three days in Moody's last review. However, according to a roll over rates analysis, during 2010 the company obtained below average collection metrics. Since Moody's last review the company has expanded its calling infrastructure by opening two new call centers and upgrading the calling technology.

Moody's assessed Acser´s operating stability as above average. Since Moody's last review the company added 7 new offices to its national coverage network for a total of 57. During the last 18 months the company upgraded the security standards at its main and secondary sites as well as reinforced its backing-up procedures by adding automatic back-up procedures to all the company's LTs and PCs.

During 2010 Acser implemented quality control and internal audit systems that operate through crossed-reviews. Moody's would positively view the inclusion of full time and specialized personnel to the quality control and internal audit teams.

CONSORCIO JURÍDICO DE COBRANZA ESPECIALIZADA, S.A. de C.V. (CJC)

Moody's affirmed CJC´s Above Average overall assessment.

Moody's considers CJC´s collection abilities as above average. According to a roll over rates analysis to the portfolio managed by the company during 2010 CJC managed to prevent rolling over in the higher delinquency buckets. Since founded, CJC has specialized in call center collections and during the last years has reinforced its field collection capacities.

Moody's would positively view higher efforts to increase the borrower contact frequency as well the effectiveness of field collection contacts.

Moody's assessed CJC´s operating stability as above average. Since Moody's last review the company has upgraded its IT and telecommunications platforms. The company has also established its own recruiting and training facilities. At this center, field and calling agents receive introductory training which includes classroom and workshops preparation.

Moody's would positively view extended training schedules for the seasoned call and field agents.

CONSORCIO JURÍDICO MENDOZA-GUZMÁN Y ASOCIADOS, S.C. (CJM)

Moody's has upgraded CJM's overall assessment to Average from Average- (Average minus). The upgrade is mainly based on the company´s continued above average roll over rates as well as on the upgrade of its telecommunications and IT platforms.

Moody's considers CJM´s collection ability as above average. According to a roll over rate analysis of the portfolio managed by CJM during 2010, the company continued to present positive collection results. Since Moody's last review, the company has established a proprietary call center, which now leverages the collection efforts of the door-knocking teams.

Moody's would positively view better customer service metrics as well as a stricter monitoring of the call and field collection contacts.

In Moody's opinion CJM´s operating stability is average. Since Moody's last review CJM has completely restructured its IT and calling platforms. The company installed a site in its headquarters and established a redundant site in the city of Pachuca. The IT facilities have standard accessibility and security procedures. The company follows systematic procedures for backing-up information and now has business continuity and disaster recovery plans.

CONSULTORES PROFESIONALES CORPORATIVOS, S.C. (CPC)

Moody's affirmed CPC's overall assessment of Above Average- (Above Average minus).

Moody's assessed CPC's collection abilities as above average. According to a roll over rates analysis, during 2010 CPC continued presenting above average collection metrics; specifically the company managed to prevent deterioration in the riskier delinquency buckets. The company leverages its collection campaigns with a proprietary and independent call center situated in the city of Leon, Guanajuato.

Moody's would positively view higher effectiveness to convert collection calls in higher promises to pay rates.

Moody's assessed CPC´s operating stability as above average. During the last 18 months the company added four offices to its network. The company strengthened its IT security standards towards establishing a redundant site 300 kilometers away from the headquarters.

Moody's would positively view a systematic annual test to CPC's business continuity and disaster recovery plans.

GRUPO DE ADMINISTRACIÓN DE BIENES Y SERVICIOS, S.A. DE C.V. (GABSSA)

Moody's upgraded Gabssa's overall assessment to Above Average -- (Above Average minus) from Average+ (Average plus). The upgrade is mainly based on Gabssa´s above average roll over rates as well as good call center and field collections performance metrics.

According to Moody's, Gabssa´s collection ability is above average. The roll over rates analysis performed to the portfolio managed by the company during 2010 indicates that Gabssa obtained good collection results across all the delinquency buckets analyzed by Moody´s.

Moody's considers that Gabssa has an opportunity area in improving the customer service metrics.

Moody's considers Gabssa´s operating stability as above average. The company renewed its third party certification on information security standards. Since Moody's last review Gabssa reinforced its IT security procedures by adding specialized hosting services and also started annual tests to its business continuity and disaster recovery plans.

The company restructured its training department and included a dedicated trainer. Gabssa now applies a systematic training calendar to all new and existing employees.

SERVICIOS TÉCNICOS DE COBRANZA, S.A. DE C.V. (SERTEC).

Moody's has upgraded Sertec's overall assessment to Strong- (Strong minus) from Above Average+ (Above Average plus). The upgrade is mainly based on the company´s sustained strong collection results as well as on its well structured monitoring team.

Moody's assessed Sertec´s collection ability as strong. During 2010 Sertec continued presenting outstanding collection results. For the same period the company presented strong metric in practically all the delinquency buckets analyzed by Moody's.

Since Moody's last review the company has leveraged its calling capacities with a well structured field collections team. Moody's positively views the company's implementation of strict monitoring procedures.

Moody's would positively view a higher conversion rate of field collection promises- to- pay into actual payments; this is, a higher kept-promises rate.

Moody's assessed Sertec´s operating stability as above average. The company has a network of 24 offices. Since Moody's last review the company has significantly reinforced its monitoring and quality control teams. Now monitoring is carried out by specialized agents which report directly to the manager in charge of Infonavit's portfolio. The quality control team is comprised of 14 members that follow a systematic calendar of visits.

The company has state of the art IT and telecommunications platforms. Given the volume of the portfolio managed by Sertec Moody's considers that better accessibility and security standards in the company's Site and telecommunications departments would contribute to reduce the risk of operating disruptions.
