NCUA Hosting Risk-Based Lending Webinar

​Learn How Product Can Grow a Credit Union’s Loan Portfolio and Improve Earnings

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Oct. 8, 2013) – The National Credit Union Administration will host a free webinar, “Risk-Based Lending—More than a Loan Pricing Tool,” on Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013, at 2 p.m. Eastern. 

Economic Development Specialist Tom Penna from NCUA’s Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives will provide an overview of risk-based lending and how it has become an important part of consumer lending. Susan George, CEO of Lake Shore Federal Credit Union, and Kelly Haaksma, CEO of Greater Chautauqua Federal Credit Union, will join Penna during the webinar. The two will share how they use risk-based loans in their own credit unions to better serve their members and increase loan volume and income, while mitigating unnecessary risks.

The webinar will also feature useful reporting tools that a board of directors and management can use to get a better understanding of the risks present in a credit union’s loan portfolio.
