How to Make Commercial Loans Through the Business Cycle and Prepare for the Next Recession
As borrowers and lenders work through the business cycle, borrowers’ credit needs change, so lenders must be ready to recognize the changes and accommodate their clients’ requirements, and credit approvers must be prepared to evaluate and adjudicate the impact of these changes on underwriting, approval, and credit risk management. Business cycles are inevitable, and bankers must understand borrowers’ funding needs through a cycle’s four phases—early expansion, late expansion, early contraction, and late contraction—as well as how to identify and evaluate clients’ relative vulnerability to recession.
Who Should Attend: Chief Credit Officer, Chief Risk Officer, Commercial Loan Officer, Business Development Officer, Junior Loan Officer

- Understanding how borrowers’ credit needs change over four phases of a business cycle
