IBISWorld to host panel at RMA’s Annual Risk Management Conference in New Orleans, October 27-29


IBISWorld, a global leader in industry market research, is set to host an informative panel on how to prepare for the economic downturn at RMA’s Annual Risk Management Conference in New Orleans, October 27-29.

The panel, entitled “Preparing for the Downturn While Positioning for Recovery,” will be led by IBISWorld’s Chief Economist, Dr. Rick Buczynski. Buczynski will be joined by Kent Kirby, Senior Credit Policy Officer at Commerce Bank in Kansas City, MO; and Dev Strischek, Principal at Devon Risk Advisory Group and retired SVP/Senior Credit Policy Officer at SunTrust Bank.

The discussion is expected to center around various factors unique to the current credit cycle as well as other issues related to the risks and opportunities for commercial lending. Attendees can also expect to gain insights into the defensive tactics used to prepare for an economic downturn, as well as safe lending strategies for the subsequent recovery period.

The panel is scheduled for day two of the conference, Monday, October 28, during the Breakout Sessions Group 2, and will be located at booths 107 and 109.
