Risk Mitigation and Loan Recoveries

Content to be presented will address:
The Warning Signs – Recognizing Borrowers Under Stress
Each borrower is different and so are the risks. However, there are often warning signs before a financial covenant breach or other event of default that leads to a workout. This seminar will begin with a discussion of 10 warning signs that a borrower is in distress—or soon will be. 

The Wary Lender – Taking Precautions
Once warning signs are detected, it is important for a lender to ask, am I perfected at every step? If not, what does a lender need to do? The panel will discuss the process of following the cash, including addressing perfection and tracing issues.

The Worried Lender – Planning for Next Steps
Does the borrower need to raise more capital? Will the lender foreclose on assets? Will there be a bankruptcy? All these and more will be discussed, including what happens to the cash in bankruptcy, what are the important benchmarks, and what exit alternatives are available.

Financial service professionals including, but not limited to, commercial lenders and in-house counsel.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
