Webinar: COVID-19 related non-performing loans (NPLs) and the challenges facing credit unions

MADISON, WI (January 8, 2021) — The COVID-19 pandemic has compounded many of the traditional institutional stressors credit unions around the globe face on a daily basis. An increase in non-performing loans and other expected credit losses are major factors contributing to those increased stressors.

The webinar will feature presentations on:

  • The $2 Trillion Question: What’s on The Horizon for Credit Losses, by Osman Sattar, Director, EMEA Financial Institutions, S&P Global Ratings
  • The Impact of Non-Performing Loans on Credit Unions, by Steven Stapp, President and CEO, Unitus Community Credit Union
