Borrowing costs are up. Consumer revolving credit use and delinquency are up.

Commercial real estate delinquency is up. Is it time to reassess your institution’s approach to annual loan review? What tranches of loans and individual files should you review, and to what extent?
  • Create a targeted plan of attack to accomplish meaningful annual loan review, even with limited resources
  • Determine risk factors within the institution’s loan portfolio that will drive credit selection in loan review
  • Differentiate between periodic loan review conducted as part of loan portfolio management and independent loan review
  • Make more informed decisions regarding credit origination in terms of risk and asset quality that are properly identified through a meaningful loan review process
  • Satisfy agency expectations for the ongoing monitoring of loan portfolio quality


Over the course of 2023, the prime rate of interest increased by 5.25%, an unprecedented increase in borrowing costs over a relatively short period of time. Consumer loan delinquency has risen significantly and revolving consumer debt is at an all-time high. Commercial real estate delinquency (excluding farm loans) increased by over 25% in the period between third quarter 2022 and second quarter 2023. Regardless of the direction of interest rates or current delinquency trends, a sound, meaningful approach to periodic loan review is a crucial component of loan portfolio management.

For most community financial institutions, resources are limited in terms of FTEs to conduct annual loan review. This session will address a targeted approach to loan review based on risk inherent in the institution’s portfolio. You will learn best practices for proactively managing the loan portfolio through the early identification of problem loans, as well as essential steps in measuring, controlling, and mitigating credit quality risk prior to loan delinquency and eventual default.


This informative session is designed for all levels of the credit and loan function, from new credit analysts to seasoned veterans. The material will be presented in a way that is understandable for those new to credit, while still providing helpful insight to those responsible for the loan portfolio, including the chief credit officer, chief lending officer, and others involved in loan portfolio management.


  • A sample tiered approach will be provided which can reduce pressure on FTE resources to conduct annual loan review while still maintaining adequate, meaningful loan review coverage
  • Employee training log
  • Interactive quiz
  • PDF of slides and speaker’s contact info for follow-up questions
  • Attendance certificate provided to self-report CE credits
