Executive management and lenders often attribute portfolio loan problems to borrower mistakes or failures in management. Unfortunately, in many instances, it is the lenders who have contributed to the borrower’s problems. This loan webinar will focus on key lender mistakes which precipitate or exacerbate portfolio loan problems.

  • Mistake 1: Failing to Distinguish Between a Temporary Investment in Current Assets and a Permanent Investment
  • Mistake 2: Inappropriately Financing Working Capital
  • Mistake 3: Putting the Customer in the Wrong Loan Product
  • Mistake 4: Inappropriately Defining Cash Flow Available for Debt Service
  • Mistake 5: Failing to Have a Structured Approach to Determine When to Say Enough is Enough i.e. Term Out a Line of Credit
  • Mistake 6: Failing to Establish Expectations with the Customer
  • Mistake 7: Over Reliance on Collateral and Guaranties
  • Mistake 8: Multiple Exceptions/Variances to Approve a Loan
