An SBA guaranty is guaranteed, right? What could go wrong? The worst time to find out the answer to these questions is when an SBA-guaranteed loan defaults. Attend this session to learn the crucial steps to establish and protect your SBA guaranty throughout the entire loan lifecycle.

The U.S. Small Business Administration’s 7(a) loan program can be a valuable tool for lenders to help small-business clients while mitigating credit risk, reducing loan loss reserve requirements, and increasing profits. However, the SBA’s conditional loan guaranty can be lost at any time during the loan lifecycle – from underwriting through liquidation. Lenders may find their SBA loan portfolios are not as strong as they believed if they fail to properly train staff on all stages of the SBA 7(a) regulatory compliance process. Learn how to ensure the SBA guaranty remains in place throughout the loan lifecycle, including easy steps to improve the likelihood of success in the 7(a) loan program.
