CUNA Lending Council Financial Flash examines concentration risk

MADISON, WI (April 14, 2016) — The NCUA first addressed concentration risk in 2010, yet questions about the development of a concentration risk policy continue.

A new Financial Flash from the CUNA Lending Council, Concentration Risk: Guidance on Policy and Metrics, provides guidance to lenders, helps determine areas of potential concentration risk, and identifies metrics credit unions can use to measure risk and set meaningful limits.

The Financial Flash makes the case that developing a concentration risk policy should not be a “plug and play” activity, sharing both actual credit union situations and simulated examples. The full scope of topics includes:

  • Considerations
  • Monitoring
  • Developing Scenarios
  • Mortgage Loans

CUNA Lending Council members are eligible to receive complimentary copies of this, and more than 300 other white papers and Financial Flashes.

The paper is available online in the white paper section of
