Loan Pricing Strategies for Community Banks
Financial regulators want to see the board’s statement of risk philosophy, including a statement on risk appetite. Nevertheless, just as important to them is the viability of a bank’s earnings performance because it is the first line of defense against loan losses and capital erosion and because it supports asset growth.
Loan pricing is the primary driver of earnings performance. Most financial institutions do not use a systematic loan pricing approach to lending. Many price to their competitors. However, to develop a more formal risk management program, financial institutions will need to articulate their loan pricing strategy in their formal written program. This completes the risk/reward formula.
This presentation will address seven objectives for loan pricing, review pricing strategies and pricing constraints, and develop a six-step process for implementing a loan-pricing strategy.
