Specialty Finance Summit

Bank Board Training Forum

September 25-26, 2017, The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead, Atlanta, GA. Chris Rentner will be speaking about Small Business Lending.

Small business is the life’s blood of many community banks, and yet this sector has seen strong competition from a number of fintech companies that are aggressively targeting small business borrowers with quick underwriting decisions. This session will offer suggestions on how banks can counter this threat by playing to their strengths while also modernizing their approach.
