nCino Deploying Banking Advisor, a Generative AI Solution to Drive New Efficiencies in Financial Institutions

WILMINGTON, N.C., June 17, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — nCino, Inc. (NASDAQ: NCNO), a pioneer in cloud banking for the global financial services industry, today made generally available its new artificial intelligence (AI) solution, Banking Advisor. nCino’s Banking Advisor is a banker-focused, conversational co-pilot tool that provides financial institutions with a modern approach to proactive portfolio management, helps streamline routine tasks to save significant time and effort, and takes the guesswork out of complex processes to help financial institutions track and comply with regulatory requirements.

The intelligence and automation embedded in Banking Advisor allow multiple roles at an institution to increase productivity and spend time on higher-value activities like building and maintaining client relationships. The solution is powered by nCino IQ (nIQ), which was introduced in 2018 and leverages AI, machine learning, and analytics to deliver intelligent automation, data-driven insights, and industry benchmarks that create an enhanced user experience and deliver greater value to customers utilizing the nCino Cloud Banking Platform.

nCino’s Banking Advisor leverages large language models to drive real-time information awareness, provide suggestions for next actions, and offer insightful interactions with information, documents, and objects to unlock new value. The co-pilot is thoughtfully designed with a set of unique skills to meet the modern demands of relationship banking and represents an innovative leap in Gen AI-assisted financial service capabilities.

The initial version of Banking Advisor includes the following skills, with more being developed:

  • Interactive Documents: Enabling bankers to “chat” with any PDF document such as credit policies, training materials, market data, how-to guides, etc.
  • Intelligent Automation: Automated writing of new deal and credit memo narratives, evolving a previously manual task and reducing human error using the narrative skill embedded in the tool
  • Data-Driven Insights: Offering of conversational industry benchmarks and insights via a chat interface, helping bankers ask questions about the data to determine the best next steps for the business
  • Advanced Processing: Streamlined document upload process by scanning the data and categorizing information to associate the scanned data with the appropriate relationship
  • Query Response: Answering specific banker questions based on uploaded documentation, such as:
    • “Can I originate a loan with a loan-to-value (LTV) ratio of 80% for a commercial property in California, given our current credit policy?”;
    • “What are the documentation requirements for a construction loan with an LTV ratio above 80%?”; and
    • “How do I initiate a loan approval request for a large commercial loan, and what are the required approval roles?”

                  COVID-19

                  The Global Private Banking Innovation Awards will recognise the world’s best private banks, wealth managers and asset managers that are championing innovation across advisory, service, products, customer experience and more.
