The Headache: Rising levels of nonperforming loans, especially commercial real estate credit, challenge the industry.
Our Question: What is your bank doing to deal with the workout challenge?
How is your bank handling loan workouts?
The only way to dig your way out of trouble is, well, to dig.
But if you don't want to just have the dirt fall back and hit you in the head, you've got to get yourself organized right.
We're asking bankers:
• How is your bank handling loan workouts?
• Do you use designated staff or do lenders work out their own problem loans?
• Are you successfully using the regulators' 2009 commercial real estate workout guidance?
We've already received responses from some bankers. Come join the conversation!
Let's hear your views and ideas below!
