Future-Proof Your Construction Lending Program
The United States is experiencing one of the most prolonged economic growth cycles on record. This cycle has led to an expansion of the commercial construction industry with growth expected through 2020. However, in addition to the “what goes up must come down” history of recessions, signs of a potential downturn are peeking their heads up from behind the cinder block. We’re beginning to see subtle signs of a slowdown, like the upward inching of interest rates and inflation, and not so subtle signs, like skyrocketing costs for materials and trade wars.
The anticipation of tomorrow’s competitive landscape and the dynamics of technological advances are forcing banks to assess their ways of doing business from an economic, process, and regulatory standpoint. In the face of these uncertainties, it is vital for banks to understand and seek opportunities to improve efficiencies and profitability.
