Making the Right Move at the Right Time: Key Strategic Decisions for Distressed Commercial Loans

Michael Fielding

Far too often, lenders proverbially throw up their hands in frustration saying each distressed loan is unique and must be addressed accordingly. But just as the rigorous approach of sabermetrics revolutionized professional baseball, so too a rigorous analysis of distressed commercial loans can provide key guidance for how lenders should “manage the game” in critical situations. Combining academic research with the perspective of an in-the-trenches practitioner, this presentation will discuss a structured framework for dealing with distressed commercial and agricultural loans. In particular, as time progresses, distressed loans pass through certain “hinge points” — i.e., critical junctures at which the lender’s action (or lack thereof) has an oversized impact on the lender’s ultimate ability to collect on the loan. This presentation will address those hinge points and provide
guidance to better help lenders make the right decision at the right time to maximize their recovery.
