BankLabs President Matt Johnner presented at the Western Bankers Association CCO and Lenders conference. His presentation called “Balance Sheet Management Strategies to Improve Loan Profit” discussed the many difficulties facing bankers today, including NIM compression, lower interest rates, and lack of quality loans. Banks are looking for ways to earn non-interest fee income.
One of the strategies many banks are using is loan participations. Some of the benefits of origination a loan and seeking participants is a reduction in concentration risk and diversify a portfolio. Other banks take loans above limit and find participants as a strategy to keep clients and increase fee income.
