They’re Back – Problem Loans – Know When to Hold Them and Fold Them

Credit & Lending

As the economy slows and starts to expose weaknesses with some bank borrowers, banks are starting to experience some credit problems. Now is the time when smart bankers seize the opportunity to prune their portfolio either by forcing potential problem borrowers to address weaknesses in their businesses or encouraging them to find other lenders. The 10-year expansion means that bankers with less than 10 years’ experience have not had much exposure to problem loans, so their ability to identify them, evaluate them, and manage them is probably very limited. This webinar is designed for line lenders with some basic commercial lending experience and credit personnel who are responsible for identifying potential problem loans, who take the first steps to protect the bank’s position, and who begin the processes to resolve the problem.

Who Should Attend: Credit Officer, Lending Officer, Risk Officer, Commercial Lending Officer

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the causes of problem loans and how to identify potential problem borrowers and industries
  • Learn about how to Develop a proactive problem asset management policy
  • Explore how to evaluate the alternatives available to resolve a problem loan and avoid lender liability
