Ardmore & RMA Team to Present Webinar & Conference Session on Banks’ COVID-19 Response

We are pleased to announce that Ardmore Banking Advisors will be teaming with the Risk Management Association this fall for a pair of educational programs that will document how various financial institutions are dealing with the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, and some of the evolving Best Practices that have been implemented to manage the additional risk.

The first program, a webinar entitled “Evolving Bank Credit Best Practices Based on Observed Approaches” will be held on Tuesday, October 20th at 1 PM EST. During this presentation, Ardmore will present five or six key areas in which banks have the opportunity to either act proactively or kick the can down the road, and give examples of banks that have established procedures that will help in the long run, and those that still have some work to do. Some topics covered will include adherence to the FFIEC Pandemic Guidance, risk rating methodology, concentration identification, stress testing, and many others. To register, please click here.

Subsequently, Ardmore will be sponsoring and presenting a 25-minute panel at the RMA’s virtual Annual Conference the week of November 9th. During that session, Peter Cherpack and Lou Dunham of Ardmore will discuss Bank United’s response to the pandemic with Walter Shields, the institution’s Executive Vice President & Director of Credit Review. The discussion will detail how the bank proactively recognized the need for immediate triage and the ability to rapidly determine the scope and impacts of the virus on its portfolio, and the tools and expertise that Ardmore provided to assist.
