August 1 to 3, 2023


Date and Time

August 1-3, 2023

Underwriting is far more than gathering data and calculating ratios. You need to make judgments about how to manage risk, and these are best when based in experience. Underwriting Level One will help you hone your skills in setting up lending parameters on prospective deals by understanding how all the pieces fit together. Learn how industry leaders think through credit issues and manage risk.

Attendees are eligible for 6 CPE credits.

  • Describe the primary responsibilities and importance of the underwriting role within their organization
  • Deepen awareness and understanding of risk assessment
  • Respond to a newly mandated request for financing from a Prospect
  • Perform business, financial, industry, and collateral analysis including understanding field exams and appraisals (inventory, M&E, real estate)
  • Understanding strengths and weakness (mitigants), sources and uses, forming loan terms, covenants, completion of underwriting memo for presentation
