The Retail Industry is facing unprecedented challenges and potentially catastrophic impact from the COVID-19 pandemic. This program will gather veteran lenders (both bank and nonbank) and industry advisors to discuss the considerations they are currently facing in Retail Finance. The program will cover topics such as: (i) How the Internet and technology has allowed some retailers to better navigate “social distancing”; (ii) Portfolio management and collateral monitoring; (iii) Business development in a time of disruption; (iii) Underwriting and lender appetite to include brands and other IP; and (iv) latest trends in work-outs and restructurings.

Our program will cover:

  • Basics of retail finance
  • The risks and stresses that COVID-19 may add
  • Applying principles of retail finance to current market conditions
