Are You Prepared for Upcoming Changes to Small Business Lending Data Collection?

November 15, 2022

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s proposed rule amending the Dodd-Frank Act is likely to have far-reaching consequences for compliance and reporting among financial institutions. But many institutions may not yet have given these developments – which are expected to go into effect in June of 2023 or 2024 - their full attention. In this Risk Readiness, experts discuss what the proposed changes mean, the timelines, and how financial institutions need to prepare.

ESG Series:

Governance and Regulation

December 13, 2022

As key portions of ESG, such as climate and social issues, continue to grow, ESG is more often becoming the subject of regulation or embedded in other regulation, such as the Community Reinvestment Act. With a new Congress preparing to come to Washington, this Risk Readiness webinar focuses on how to find the balance in our hyper-charged political times. Join experts from McKinsey and two prominent ESG directors at banks to gain insight and practical ideas for your governance programs.


Building Trust and Culture in an Era of “Quiet Quitting”

January 10, 2023

Banks pay a great deal of attention to the processes, systems, and organizational structures that mitigate risk but do they pay enough attention to creating an atmosphere of trust? In this Risk Readiness webinar, bankers and human resources experts delve into how to build cultures of trust, how such cultures can not only improve retention and prevent “quiet quitting” but also foster desirable risk behaviors (and help to head off undesirable ones), and what trends in culture bank managers should be watching.


AI and Modeling: Building Another Cyber Risk?

January 24, 2023

Artificial-intelligence models are supporting an ever-growing range of critical activities at banks – from lending to fraud monitoring to trading. These AI-driven models have created efficiencies, opened up opportunities, and introduced important protections. But as the Wall Street Journal recently reported, AI systems are “uniquely exposed” to cyberattack. Join cyber risk and modeling experts to learn about the particular vulnerabilities of AI-driven systems, critical steps you should take to understand your institution’s exposure, and how to ensure your validation programs are addressing these challenges.

February 7, 2023

Commercial Real Estate (CRE) Risk Analysis in Today’s Economy

October 6, 2022

Brought to you by: CoStar Risk Analytics

Throughout the pandemic period, the CRE landscape has shifted significantly. From the east to the west coast, across property types, we have been noticing diverse behaviors in the CRE markets that differ from what we experienced in previous downturns. Since the second half of 2022, risk started to heighten while economic uncertainty and industry volatility remain the theme of the party. Like the economy, the CRE environment will continue to alter going into 2023. Massive opportunities, as well as threats, exist in the altering terrain.


When things are sluggish or declining, it is vital to be alert and nimble. Robust risk analytics is the key. Combining the top-down and bottom-up approaches, risk analytics driven by a forward-looking view, granular and fresh data can help identify the imbalances between supply and demand, fundamentals and valuation, and any hidden dis-equilibriums in local markets where idiosyncratic risks and opportunities reside.


Let's talk about the commercial real estate risk analysis that brings valuable insights to CRE investors and lenders who aim to maneuver safely in today’s environment.
