ABA Commercial Lending Survey of Community and Mid-Sized Banks

Do you know how your bank's commercial loan portfolio compares to your peers? What sort of technology and automation are your peers using to better target and serve businesses? What major issues are commercial lenders facing? If you are looking for answers to these questions, then you will not want to miss the ABA Commercial Lending Survey of Community and Mid-Sized Banks. This survey report offers comprehensive, detailed benchmarks that are a valuable resource for assessing the health of your bank's commercial lending function as well as that of the industry as a whole. The survey results are broken down by those banks with one billion or less in assets (community banks) and by those banks with one to ten billion in assets (mid-sized banks).

Among its findings:

  • Institutions with less than $1 billion in assets had an average commitment of commercial and industrial (C&I) terms loans of $30 million per bank as of year-end 2006.
  • Close to half of surveyed banks emphasized the branch or county in their market segmentation strategy for commercial lending.
  • Commercial loan officers were given incentives at close to 75 percent of the reporting banks.

CEOs, commercial lending executives and other senior bank executives involved in commercial lending would benefit from reading this report. You will not want to miss this unique opportunity to compare your business lending policies, practices, and performance with those of your peers.
