We just did a simple survey of a sampling of active financial professionals and were stunned at the results.
We asked them if they could name three major changes that have occurred in any kind of financial lending in the last three years (commercial, real estate, credit card, securities margin, insurance policy).
Surprisingly, 73% of the persons surveyed could NOT name three major changes that have occurred in the last three years! They simply sell their products, pass their tests but evidently they were not CONNECTING THE DOTS... Very limiting to career progression...
Be sure to catch the session "New trends in the lending game ( Mortgage, credit card, commercial lending)" at the Urban Financial Services Coalition 40th Annual International Summit in Chicago June 6 for impactful career and business building strategic updates!
One of the panelists in this discussion will be Mr. Steven Moore, First Vice President- California Market. Mr. Moore is responsible for managing the credit quality of new and existing loans for the Business Banking Division in Northern California (including Silicon Valley). He is also a voting member of Comerica's Loan Committees for the California Market. Definitely someone you want to hear.
