The Current State of Lending David Ruffin, EVP - Intellicredit, a division of QwickRate

Every bank has a loan approval process along with a loan or credit committee. But as competition to provide consumer, commercial real estate and small business loans accelerates, community banks need to make sure that sound lending policies are in place. This session will provide commentary and analysis on national and regional economic trends.

Fair or Foul: Understanding Fair Lending Compliance Risk Kimberly Boatwright, CRCM, CAMS, Director of Compliance, Ncontracts

In the race to comply with fair lending regulations, the finish line is constantly moving. Evolving HMDA requirements and increased public interest in allegations of discrimination makes running afoul of fair lending regulations more than just a regulatory and financial headache. It can also be a public relations nightmare. This session will help you understand fair lending compliance risk and the nine essentials of a strong compliance management program. You’ll gain insights into how to protect your institution and ensure borrowers are treated fairly.

How Banks Can Raise the Bar with Fintech Partnerships Steven Martin, Founder & CEO, MARCATO ADVISORS

Over the last few years, fintech advancements have transformed the way we buy, bank and borrow. Rather than treat these changes as a threat, banks should view them as a benefit—if they adapt. After all, they have the credibility and experience that come with hundreds of years of processing loans, along with a low cost of capital, which represents a tremendous resource for the small businesses counting on them. By taking a cue from disruptors and incorporating new tools, they can create a more efficient lending process, digitally connect with borrowers, and leverage fintech to serve their small business customers today and well into the future.

CRE Lending: Understanding Global Cash Flow Analysis to Make More Informed Decisions David Ruffin, EVP-Intellicredit, a division of QwickRate

Banks continue to deal with commercial real estate (CRE) loans as a major portion of their loan portfolios. Also, many borrowers still have large holdings of income-producing or rental real estate. Whether directly financing these assets or including the income streams in your overall credit analysis, it is important to understand key analytical concepts utilized in evaluating CRE cash flow.

C.Y.B.E.R. - Can You Be Entirely Ready Jonathan W. Biggs, Vice President & Director of Risk Management & Education, Investor’s Title

Five years ago, terms like Wire Fraud, Ransomware, Phishing, Social Engineering and Cyber Breach were not part of a real estate attorney’s vocabulary. Wire call back procedures were not part of a real estate attorney’s daily ritual. Cyber fraud insurance was not part of a real estate attorney’s monthly expenses. Cyber security was never discussed in law school. Today, all of these things are a daily reality for everyone handling any part of a real estate closing • or even just using a computer or cell phone. Each attorney, together with their staff, is charged with the duty to understand these risks, to put effective policies and procedures in place, and to protect themselves and their clients from these risks. We will examine scenarios of how cyber fraud and wire fraud threaten you, your clients and your business. We will also examine how to protect yourself from these daily threats and what to do in the event the event that you are a victim of cyber fraud.
