In the spirit of sharing, I figured I would set up one of these to help out those interested in learning more about Commercial Banking. As there is no separate sub forum, it is hard to find up to date/current info. Commercial Baking isn't super sexy like IB, but it's a good W/L balance gig that pays well.
A bit about myself:
I am a SVP with a top 20 Bank (both deposits and assets). I've been with the bank for 10+ years and manage an underwriting team. I have experience in specialty lending as well as core C&I (i.e. Middle Market). I am also one of our business line approvers with a $30MM+ pen.
I took the traditional route to get where I am, formal credit training program, analyst, Portfolio Manager, Senior PM, Team Leader.
I also frequently sit on ourcommittees for the incoming analyst class (in addition to interviewing).
Feel free to ask anything.
