Lenders and credit analysts only have one chance to make a good loan decision or face time-consuming and costly consequences. Are your commercial lending practices safe and sound?

After This Webinar You’ll be Able To:

  • List the nine steps in the commercial lending process financial institutions should follow to obtain the type of borrowers they seek
  • Specify the unique risks associated with commercial lending
  • Understand the impact and benefits of commercial lending to financial institutions
  • Discover the impact of commercial lending to the national, state, and local economies and why regulators encourage financial institutions to support individuals and small companies
  • Avoid common mistakes during the underwriting and decision-making processes

Webinar Details

Interest and fee income from commercial loans represent a primary source of revenue for financial institutions. The continued flow of capital from loans drives our national and local economies. In addition, regulators encourage institutions to support individuals and small businesses by lending to creditworthy borrowers. This is proven by the interagency guidance issued during the height of the worldwide pandemic. Therefore, thorough credit analysis is paramount before loan decisions are made.

This webinar will address the role of financial institutions as arbiters of risk in supporting the economy while making safe and sound loans in compliance with regulatory requirements. Sometimes, these objectives conflict with each other. This session will present the risks, rewards, control factors, and common mistakes made during commercial underwriting.

Who Should Attend?

Commercial accounts require special and ongoing attention — especially in the BSA realm.

Does your program satisfy all the CDD and beneficial ownership requirements for business accounts? Do you know what’s on the horizon? Don’t get caught short during your next BSA exam.

After this webinar you will be able to:

  • Discuss this overview of BSA laws and penalties
  • Manage due diligence requirements
  • Identify and track beneficial ownership
  • Understand FinCEN’s proposed beneficial ownership reporting rule
  • Employ available BSA resources

Webinar Details
Commercial services offer many unique opportunities. From increased community involvement to increased fee income, there’s potential to make a positive impact on the community and bottom line. But with massive penalties being imposed for BSA violations, now is not the time to conduct business as usual. Gone are the days when proper account access was your only concern. Heightened customer due diligence requirements, combined with increased regulatory focus on business accounts used in criminal activity, have dramatically changed BSA obligations.

Bank Secrecy Act compliance continues to be a high regulatory examination target and one that should receive extensive time and attention. The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) has even proposed a new rule to further focus on commercial accounts and limit their use in hiding nefarious activity. Do you understand the potential impact to your institution? This webinar will review the entire business account process from account opening and monitoring to beneficial ownership, and will highlight the potential landmines.

Who Should Attend?
This informative session is designed for BSA officers, senior executives, directors, compliance personnel, audit staff, security officers, and anyone involved with the BSA program.

This webinar was developed by a lawyer who has been teaching loan documentation for more than 25 years. Taught at a basic level (for bankers, not lawyers), the instructor will lead participants through all sections of the various required real estate loan documents. The purpose is to create a deeper understanding of why certain documents are required, plus the significance of various sections and verbose language (often referred to as “boilerplate”). Being able to explain document content will add much to customer relationships.

Covered Topics

  • Real Estate Lien Note/Promissory Note: The note is enforceable against the borrower! Review of each section for content, purpose, rights of all parties and scope of language.
  • Mortgage & Deed of Trust: The mortgage or deed of trust is enforceable against the real property interest taken as collateral. Review of each section for content, purpose, rights of all parties, representations and warrantees, plus enforceability.
  • Title Commitment and Title Policy: The title policy protects the lender by assuring an acceptable lien position. Knowing what to expect and what to look for is essential to underwriting and closing real estate loans.
  • Guarantees: A guarantor of a real estate loan may have limited recourse and/or may execute a special environmental guaranty. Bankers need to understand the types of guarantees specific to real estate loans

Who Should Attend
Lenders, loan assistants, loan operations personnel, credit analysts and personnel involved in real estate loan review, internal audit, and compliance.

Excel expert David H. Ringstrom, CPA, focuses on the basics of using Excel pivot tables in this comprehensive presentation. Pivot tables empower you to easily create reports from complex data, simply by using your mouse. Ringstrom explains how to initiate a pivot table from a list of data, expand and collapse pivot table elements, dig deeper into the numbers with the Report Filter command, and much more. As is the case with many features in Excel, pivot tables have nuances that can trip you up, so Ringstrom points out traps and teaches you tricks to help ensure your reports are always accurate.

Ringstrom demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in the subscription-based Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) version of Excel. Ringstrom draws your attention to any differences in the older versions of Excel (2021, 2019, 2016, and earlier) during the presentation as well as in his detailed handouts. Ringstrom also provides an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples he uses during the webcast.

Microsoft 365 is a subscription-based product that provides new feature updates as often as monthly. Conversely, the perpetual licensed versions of Excel have feature sets that don’t change. Perpetual licensed versions have year numbers, such as Excel 2021, Excel 2019, and so on.

Covered Topics

  • Identifying the ideal data for analysis with Excel’s PivotTable feature.
  • Creating a pivot table to transform lists of data into on-screen reports.
  • Distinguishing the differences among pivot table-related menus in Excel 2013 and later versus older versions of Excel.
  • Adding rows to a blank pivot table to create instant reports.
  • Repositioning or removing subtotals within pivot tables.
  • Exploring the nuances of formatting numbers within pivot tables.
  • Avoiding the dreaded PivotTable Field Name Already Exists error prompt.
  • Filtering pivot tables to show fewer columns and/or rows of data.
  • Presenting the largest or smallest values in chart form by way of a Top 10 pivot chart.
  • Unlocking additional filtering capabilities in pivot tables by knowing where to position one’s cursor to re-enable the Filter command.
  • Utilizing the Tabular Format command to display pivot table data in two or more columns instead of a single column in Compact Form.
  • Resetting all filters at once within a pivot table by way of the Clear Filters command.

Who Should Attend
Professionals who need to create actionable reports from lists of data with minimal effort.
