Advanced Lending Techniques Through Loan Hedging
In an unprecedented interest rate environment, we will share strategies that allow lenders to address these essential questions:

How can I offer a longer fixed rate loan when competing with a national bank? How can I make my loan instantly profitable through an additional source of non-interest income?

How can I embed a prepayment penalty so my prospect does not have to come out of pocket? How can I offer a construction loan with a committed fixed-rate takeout? How can I offer borrowers the most value while maximizing relationship retention rates for the bank?

What You Will Learn

  • Learn how to win loans in a highly competitive environment while maximizing yield for the bank.
  • Understand the key differences in a community bank’s potential value proposition versus national and regional banks with fragmented business units.
