Tue
Commercial Lending School with Jeffery Johnson @ North Carolina Bankers Association
Oct 9 @ 9:00 am – Oct 11 @ 4:00 pm

PROGRAM INFORMATION

This is a must-attend program for Commercial Lenders, Credit Officers, Branch Managers, Credit Analysts, Consumer Lenders, Loan Review Officers, Compliance Officers, Senior Loan Officers, Senior Credit Officers, and Senior Level Commercial Lending Support Staff. 

Commercial and Industrial Lending has moved to the forefront for many banks.  After years of extending loans to develop and support Commercial Real Estate; banks’ loan portfolios have become heavily concentrated in loans secured by Commercial Real Estate. Regulators are demanding banks to diversify their commercial loan portfolios to include more commercial and industrial loans thus lessening the impact of commercial real estate loan concentration.

Transitioning from Real Estate Lending to Commercial & Industrial Lending is not that easy for many banks and it requires a different mindset, analytical and lending skills in order to identify and measure risk properly. For example, Real Estate Lending is truly Asset-Based Lending and more transactional oriented where the focus is upon the value of the underlying property to determine if the project can produce the necessary cash flow to service debt. In Commercial and Industrial Lending, the primary sources of repayment are Conversion of Assets (for Short Term Loans and Lines of Credit) and Historical and Projected Cash Flow generation (for Long Term Loans). For these types of loans, collateral, guarantors, sponsors, etc., become the secondary source of repayment. Commercial Loans can be highly profitable but can expose banks to a high level of risk if they are not properly investigated and analyzed. Since the loan portfolio is the largest asset for most banks and it generates the majority of interest income and fees, it is vital that commercial loans are selected and analyzed carefully before they are approved and funded.

The purpose of this three-day Commercial Lending School is to provide participants with the fundamentals required to be successful in the Commercial Lending Process. This school will cover the major areas commercial loan officers must master in order to build a safe and sound loan portfolio. Please view the agenda (link above) to see the specific topics this School will cover.
