The Rise of Alternative Lenders in Banking

The Rise of Alternative Lenders in Banking

The Rise of Alternative Lenders in Banking, Fintech, and Real Estate 
Monday, June 17, 2019
2:00 pm – 3:00 pm Eastern 


As banks withdrew from CRE lending following the 2008 financial crisis, alternative lenders such as hedge funds, private-equity firms, and specialty debt funds stepped up to fill the void. Many traditional banks have not yet fully adapted to the shifting marketplace, and alternative lenders continue to gain market share.

Bank of the Ozarks, is but one example of a community bank that has successfully grown from a small, regional bank to become a dominant player in gateway market construction financing. As we move into the next economic cycle, CRE loans will likely default at higher rates than conventional financing.

This banking webinar covers the basics of alternative lending and associated regulatory risks, and highlights various strategies for banks to capitalize on this trend.
