Take Steps to Protect Your 2021 Profits

The largest potential impact to a bank or credit union profitability occurs when there is a larger than normal charged expense to the Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (ALLL) resulting from rising problem loans.

With PPP business stimulus ending, commercial loan and commercial real estate default rates are starting to increase and could dramatically impact your 2021 profitability unless you take steps now to implement the following:
