Why You Should Attend

7th Annual Hydro Plant Maintenance & Reliability

This GFMI conference will enable banks to enhance their commercial real estate lending strategy whilst ensuring cost effectiveness. With more scrutiny being put on banks than ever before, and the impending threat of a lull in the economic cycle, banks are under pressure to optimize lending to maximize profits, while ensuring they meet regulatory demands. New approaches to minimize credit risk will be examined, and best practices of CRE underwriting will be discussed. Additionally, the issue of overbuilding in saturated sectors will be examined, and new investment opportunities will be addressed. Attendees will also gain a critical insight into the clarification of the High Volatility Commercial Real Estate (HVCRE) rule, and develop their practical application of the rule.

  • Mitigate environmental challenges through implementation of new technologies and standards with Portland General Electric
  • Harness reliability on new and existing assets to employ best practices with US Bureau of Reclamation, Grand Coulee Power Office
