The Rise of Alternative Lenders in Banking, Fintech, and Real Estate

Register Now

Private Lenders

As banks withdrew from CRE lending following the 2008 financial crisis, alternative lenders such as hedge funds, private-equity firms, and specialty debt funds stepped up to fill the void. Many traditional banks have not yet fully adapted to the shifting marketplace, and alternative lenders continue to gain market share.

Bank of the Ozarks, is but one example of a community bank that has successfully grown from a small, regional bank to become a dominant player in gateway market construction financing. As we move into the next economic cycle, CRE loans will likely default at higher rates than conventional financing.

This banking webinar covers the basics of alternative lending and associated regulatory risks, and highlights various strategies for banks to capitalize on this trend.

FREE Event: 5 Strategic Solutions You Need to Offer Business Customers in 2019

Register Now

Business Customer

As financial institutions ponder the changes in delivering financial services, it becomes increasingly evident that focusing on businesses should be a high priority. They are your best, most profitable customers or members. The question we should be asking is “Are we a strategic partner to our current and future business customers”?

By examining how you become strategic, you can focus on business services that go beyond the tactical and provide a benefit beyond traditional cash management / treasury services. When FIs assist businesses in lowering their costs, provide business growth assistance or enhance the customer experience, they become a strategic partner to those businesses.

This banking webinar will highlight 5 specific opportunities FIs should consider in order to transition from a “financial institution” into a valued strategic partner.

Fixing Small Business Loans

Register Now

Small Business Loan

Lending to small business is expensive because of origination, underwriting, capital, and many related costs. Most banks lose money when they make a business loan below $250K. In some cases banks avoid making small loans, missing out on a relationship opportunity and providing an inroad for Fintech lenders. Other banks either do not understand their loan economics or accept their losses, relying on deposits and the sale of other services for relationship profitability, a risky approach.

This banking webinar focuses on highlighting the small loan problem and providing specific and practical near-term steps banks can take to turn losses into profits. As will be discussed, the solution involves addressing organizational issues, pricing opportunities, revisiting risk criteria, and, potentially, implementing selected technology.

FDICIA – An Acquisition Away

Register Now

Whether you are an acquisition away from the $500 million asset size level, or the $1 Billion asset size level or organic growth has gotten you there, there is a lot that may change because of you hitting that asset size.

While Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act (FDICIA) has been around since before the new century, the current banking environment means banks may have to comply with these regulations within their next year. 

Many banks approaching the $1B threshold appear to be falling short of the requirements defined under FDICIA. These requirements vary based on whether your institution has between $500M and $1B in assets, or if you exceed $1B in assets as measured by the individual charters within your institution or holding company.

If your institution is reaching the $500M, are you familiar with the new requirements and regulations with which you must comply, especially those pertaining to Auditor independence and reporting regulations? Is your audit committee in compliance?

If your institution is close to the $1B asset mark, you also have additional requirements under FDICIA that can impact your audit committee, reports and internal controls.

This banking webinar will provide an overview of different requirements for compliance by asset size, regulatory reports and cover what it means to you, your board and audit committee as well as your internal and external audit firms.

Performing Due Diligence on Commercial Loans: Analysis and Documentation

Register Now

The basis of this loan webinar is to introduce some of the critical steps or activities necessary to complete due diligence for commercial loans. We will examine activities directed at the borrower, guarantor, and the transaction itself.

This commercial lending webinar focuses on the activities involving due diligence for commercial loan transactions. Due diligence is like homework. If you do your homework, you are prepared for any test that might come up. There is an old credit cliché that goes something like this: “Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see”. That might sound cynical, but in the end questioning and verifying everything will save you money.

Bonus Material: Every attendee also receives a due diligence checklist to help guide you.

Loan Webinar Agenda

  • Borrower and Guarantor Due Diligence
    • a) Background investigation
    • b) Legal issues
    • c) Financial information
    • d) Other items
  • Transaction Due Diligence
    • a) Collateral ownership
    • b) Collateral value
    • c) Environmental concerns
  • Red Flags warning lending officers and auditors

Due diligence does not stop with the funding of a loan. A borrower is not static. The world in which they operate is ever changing. As a result, their condition is ever changing. The biggest mistakes in commercial lending often happen at the time of a renewal. The process of due diligence for non-financial items are not considered again. So, when the borrower says, “Everything is great” “Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see”.
