FOR FINANCIAL LENDERS: Agri-Processing Lenders Conference
November 19-20, Leduc
Past research has identified that many financial account managers in Alberta had a low level of understanding about the agri-food processing industry in Alberta and /or did not trust the industry to be a feasible medium risk option to diversity their credit portfolios. This conference is aimed at account managers of various financial institutions in Alberta that lend to the agri-processing industry with the goal of improving their level of understanding in assessing credit risk specifically for Alberta agri-food businesses.
Current issues, regulations, trends, expert opinions etc. specifically affecting credit risk in Alberta’s agri food processing area will be explored and using this new insight in combination with a custom built agri-processing credit risk tool participants will work through and analyse a real world Alberta agri-processing case study. By improving financial lender’s understanding and ability to properly assess credit risk specific to Alberta’s agri-processing industry our ultimate goal is to ensure that our agri-processing businesses have more opportunity to access capital.
