Commercial loan growth is a primary objective for many financial institutions across the country and for good reason: it consistently leads to increased revenue. Whether your institution is an established commercial lender, or just testing the waters, understanding lending workflows will be vital to your team’s success. Why? Because as you lend more and your institution grows, communication silos may form as departments myopically focus on their specific tasks. When communications break down, loans get stuck. And we all know that time kills deals. To stay competitive, you will want to build a lending process that facilitates communication for fast decision-making.
