Vendor’s Single Interest (VSI)
VSI is essentially a blanket policy covering the bank against damage to repossessed collateral. The lender typically pays for the coverage out of the loan origination fees. Pricing is available on a per vehicle basis, premium due at the time of loan origination or a premium based on the monthly balance of the portfolio.
Collateral Protection Insurance
Collateral protection is designed for borrowers who have let their own insurance lapse and are unable or unwilling to obtain new insurance on their vehicle. It is most often paired with an insurance tracking program.
The premiums for the insurance are added to the borrower’s account, saving the bank the need to pay for the insurance. If the collateral becomes damaged the CPI insurance will repair the auto keeping the borrower in their vehicle, leading to a decline in repossessions.
