SFNet Midwest Fall Education Event

October 21, 2021 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM (Central Daylight Time)

Join the Secured Finance Network Midwest Chapter Education Committee as we host our fall market update. This event is FREE for all members and non-members.

Michelle Kuhr (Managing Director, Riveron) will moderate a panel of distinguished lenders as they examine the impact of COVID-19 on the lending market and the economy in general. This event is free for all members and non-members.

Michelle will be joined by Bruce Denby (Managing Director and co-head of ABL group, CIBC), Penny Fine (Managing Director, CIT Asset Management), Mike Scolaro (Managing Director, BMO Harris Bank’s ABL team), and Bob Shanahan (President, Wintrust Business Credit).

Join us as the panelists discuss their perspectives on:

  • How is the uncertainty around COVID-19 impacting the lending market?
  • What are they seeing on loan risk ratings and write-offs?
  • How are lenders handling new business originations and tough competition?
  • What is the confidence level of ABL lenders and industry professionals?

We are hosting an optional in-person Networking Reception following the virtual Education Panel from 4:30—6:30 PM at Pazzo's. You are invited to come early and watch the panel that starts at 3:00 PM. You need to register separately for the Networking Reception.
