But that value comes with risks. Strategic-minded institutions do not strive to eliminate risk or even to minimize it – they strive to manage risk at the enterprise-wide level. These enterprises seek to manage risk exposure so that, at any given time, they incur just enough of the right kind of risk—no more, no less—to effectively pursue their strategic goals. This is referred to as “Optimal Risk-Taking.” This webinar will take you through a step-by-step process to develop Risk Assessments to address key areas of your institution.

This program provides the analytical tools (with case examples) to understand how equipment finance needs arise, and how to use financial statements or tax returns to determine historical patterns of capital expenditures and related long-term financing, plus gaps between purchases and financing. This allows the lender or analyst to position your bank to be proactive in helping customers optimize or maximize equipment financing, while minimizing its draining effect on working capital via small purchases (not financed) and down payments. From there we explore how leasing fits into the financing picture, including the different types of leases. We also provide an overview of upcoming accounting changes for capita   Specific topics to be covered include; Overview of equipment financing (loan or lease) compared to three other major categories of commercial/business loans (seasonal credit, bridge financing and operating lines of credit) Industries that tend to have stronger equipment financing needs Equipment loan vs. lease: Advantages and disadvantages of each, plus key issues Usage of the depreciation deduction vs. rent expense within other taxation concerns Keeping debt off the balance sheet within leverage concerns Capitalized leases vs. operating leases and upcoming FASB changes Case example of how to capitalize an operating lease for analytical purposes Issues with equipment as collateral, plus loan monitoring, administration and common pitfalls   Target Audience:  Commercial and business lenders, credit analysts, community bankers, private bankers and portfolio managers; plus loan review and examination specialists, and credit officers involved evaluating or approving equipment financing Read More
