(C)2021 ENPublishing - http://www.enpublishing.co.uk

Release date- 27092021 - DBRS, Inc. (DBRS Morningstar) assigned provisional ratings to the following classes of notes (collectively, the Notes) to be issued by SoFi Consumer Loan Program 2021-1 Trust (SCLP 2021-1).

$187,000,000 Class A Notes at AAA (sf)

$13,200,000 Class B Notes at AA (sf)

$16,100,000 Class C Notes at A (sf)

$16,200,000 Class D Notes at BBB (sf)

DBRS Morningstar's projected losses include the assessment of the impact of the coronavirus. The DBRS Morningstar CNL assumption is 5.52% based on the Cut-Off Date pool composition.

DBRS Morningstar incorporated in its analysis a hardship deferment stress as a result of an increase in utilization related to the impact of the coronavirus on borrowers. DBRS Morningstar stressed hardship deferments to test liquidity risk early in the life of the transaction's cash flows.

(2) The transaction's form and sufficiency of available credit enhancement.

Subordination, overcollateralization, amounts held in the Reserve Account, and excess spread create credit enhancement levels that are commensurate with the proposed ratings.

Transaction cash flows are sufficient to repay investors under all AAA (sf), AA (sf), A (sf), and BBB (sf) stress scenarios in accordance with the terms of the...
