Foundations for the Future: Lending Strategies for Success
Produced by the Knowledge Center, an executive conference from S&P Global Market Intelligence
The surprising results of the U.S. presidential elections spread optimism across the banking industry as many market watchers eyed the prospect of reduced regulation for community banks and sweeping tax reform. One year later, that optimism has turned to uncertainty, as substantial changes have yet to materialize.
Some policies and appointments of the Trump administration are beginning to take shape, and the market should have greater clarity into the potential passage of any legislation next year. Greater certainty, whether or not changes come to pass, should bring more borrowers to the lending table and help foster origination activity.
At this year's 7th Annual Community Bankers Conference, we will discuss how bank executives can manage their businesses from the inside out, responding to external developments when appropriate, but ultimately defining successful strategies regardless of the economic or political environment.
One area of opportunity for community banks rests in their commercial loan portfolio. The mission to maximize profitability for a community bank arguably begins and ends with optimizing pricing and growth, while minimizing risk, in its commercial portfolio.
In panels, networking events and one-on-one conversations, we will discuss what it takes to lead a high-performing community bank of the future, with a focus on maximizing performance across your CRE and C&I portfolios. We will focus on solutions, strategies and opportunities that will help you thrive in today’s market.
Our conference takes place at the Four Seasons in Orlando, steps away from Walt Disney World. Make it a trip the whole family can enjoy! Take this opportunity to get away from your day-to-day responsibilities and think strategically about your bank, while also enjoying fun networking events with your peers.
