Line-by-Line Loan Review for Consumer, Commercial & Residential

Date: May 15, 2013

Time: 3:00pm - 4:30pm

Location: Webinar


A credit union’s loan-review program is an essential key to a strong credit-risk-management program. Examiners are spending a considerable amount of time determining whether you have a strong, dynamic loan-review program. Specifically, they are looking for a qualified, independent assessment of your overall credit-risk-management processes, including loan-grading integrity and uniformity, adherence to policies, underwriting quality, and ongoing account management. Loan review must provide comprehensive narrative reports to management and the board detailing the adequacy of each component and an overall assessment of the level and direction of credit risk.

Two case studies – a commercial loan and a real estate loan – will be presented which will cover each important step in the loan-review process. You will receive worksheets and a reporting process that you can implement at your credit union.
