SOP 50 10 5(F) is NOW Available

The long-awaited 5(F) version of the SOP 50 10 has been released and will become effective on January 1, 2014.

In today’s economic climate, the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) loan program continues to be one of the primary outlets for banks and other lending institutions to provide capital to their small business clients and, at the same time, secure a 50% to 85% loan guaranty from the federal government. While the program can be quite profitable, it is not without its risks. Compliance with SBA regulations is mandatory to insure success and profitability.  This webinar will cover substantial policy changes, including changes to: credit criteria, collateral policies, appraisal and business valuations, life insurance –and much more.
