Commercial Real Estate Lending for Banks

Optimize your commercial real estate strategies to best manage the shifting regulatory environment

With the improving economy in the US, the amount of spending in commercial real estate lending is beginning to increase. But under Basel III, new requirements have been introduced around High Volatility Commercial Real Estate (HVCRE), requiring banks to hold more capital for loans. However, many banks feel the regulation is unclear and controversial, and they are struggling to come to terms with what the new requirements mean for them.

This GFMI conference will analyze the key issues with understanding the HVCRE requirements. Delegates will learn the best practices to classify loans as HVCRE and how to manage capital to meet the requirements and avoid the HVCRE classification. They will understand the impact of the Basel III regulations on the overall real estate lending market and strategies to best compete with non-bank lenders in this profitable line of business.

Key Topics
  • Office of the Comptroller of the Currency explain the current risks facing the commercial real estate market
  • Mortgage Bankers Association discuss the current state of affairs in real estate lending
  • PNC Real Estate create a practical policy from the HVCRE regulation
  • Barclays evaluate the effect of regulation on underwriting standards for commercial real estate lending
  • First Niagara Bank explore the unintended consequences of the HVCRE regulation
