The Impact of an Economic Downturn

Duration:60 minutes


The topic of timing and severity of a potential recession is making headline news. Lenders urgently desire insights into how the next downturn will manifest so they can develop strategies to mitigate risk and weather the potential storm. Of course, it’s impossible to predict with certainty the precise nature of the next recession. What’s a far more tractable problem is to plan your strategies around the impact of the downturn — in other words, what might happen to customers’ ability to pay.

In this webinar, we will discuss:
• An approach to forecasting deterioration in delinquency rates at the portfolio level based on macroeconomic and portfolio metrics
• A scenario planning methodology to help lenders develop tailored contingency strategies for different levels of performance degradation
• What you should do to be well-positioned to respond quickly and effectively to the next downturn regardless of its severity
