In this 90-minute ABA Briefing, we will review some CRE risk management best practice recommendations and real life examples.

Event Details

Regulators are focusing on commercial real estate portfolios -- are your ready? The added dynamic of CECL will require institutions, including those with less than $10 billion in assets, to accelerate their efforts to improve risk management and credit portfolio management to better stratify loan portfolios and understand all the concentrations.

A holistic approach to commercial real estate (CRE) risk management can help banks and other lending institutions accomplish their objectives while complying with regulator expectations. Two key processes which can assist financial institutions understand mitigating, and reporting CRE concentration risk are a high-powered loan review function and a simple but dynamic stress testing methodology.

In this 90-minute Briefing, we will review some best practice recommendations and real life examples on:
How your institution can transform a traditional loan review program into a dynamic function which adds value to your institution beyond risk rating accuracy
How to build simple but dynamic stress testing capabilities for your institution with real life examples

This briefing will focus on:

  • Why CRE concentrations are on everyone's minds and why they are getting so much attention
  • New ways institutions can look at their CRE concentrations internally (management) and through their loan review process (internal or external).
  • Real life examples used to display some of the simple, but extremely effective methods in which data can play a key role
  • Examining how stress testing plays into your institution's CRE concentrations -- this is not just for banks with over $10 billion in assets. If you have a meaningful CRE concentration, pointed stress testing can help you assess your institution's most critical risks.
