But, let’s not stop there. When an entire organization benefits from relationship development, we need to find effective ways to engage the entire organization in relationship development. Everyone plays an important role in that process, so take the time to discover and identify how each job position at your bank will contribute to successful relationship development. This session examines how banks can direct their culture and business practices directly at customers and their long-term loyalty. It’s no longer acceptable to only take ownership of your daily tasks. Every employee must take ownership in the customers’ relationship tenure and satisfaction.   Target Audience:  Everyone on the bank’s team Read More

Presenter: Richard Hamm, Advantage Consulting & Training This 90-minute program will be presented live on: February 9, 1:00-2:30 p.m. Central Time Recording available through: May 9, 2021 Price: $275   This seminar covers common versions of global cash flow (GCF) analysis being used by bankers, with a focus on GCF as part of the underwriting process in most medium- to smaller-sized businesses and self-employed lending situations.  A major issue is how to adjust or reduce the personal cash flow for income taxes and living expenses.  Because of differences in how a personal debt-to-income (DTI) is derived versus a business debt service coverage (DSC), some type of adjustment must be made before combining personal and business data.  This leads to a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of adjusting for income taxes and living expenses, versus adjusting the required coverage factor.  Another major issue is capital gains and other items within the broader recurring/non-recurring decision category.    A case study is used to illustrate key points.   Topics to be covered include: Personal DTI versus business DSC Approaches to imputing a personal living expense factor Regulatory discussion of living expenses and capital gains (losses) Analytical and conceptual issues: Mixing two approaches to debt coverage Using averages for debt coverage ratios Recurring vs. non-recurring items Where is the cash flow (if any) when a capital gain is listed?   Target Audience: Branch managers, consumer lenders, mortgage bankers, private bankers, small business lenders, commercial lenders, credit analysts, loan review specialists, special assets officers, lending managers and credit officers Read More
