When a bank enters into a lending arrangement with a borrower, or some time thereafter, the bank may wish to sell a portion of the loan to another bank. Or a bank may wish to purchase a portion of a loan made by another bank.

This area of lending is closely monitored by banking regulators because of the inherent risk in this type of lending, and banks' failure to take precautions to avoid undue problems.
