How Should Federal Loan Programs Consider Concentration Risk?

March 20, 2017 Anthony Curcio


Last week, I released my new white paper on how Federal loan programs should consider concentration risk. Federal loan programs must have a clear understanding of their appetite for risk and often this means recognizing and even tolerating concentration risk.

Some Federal loan risk managers and risk officers, concerned about concentration risk, are pushing hard for increased diversification of their portfolios at the program level. I’m not sure that’s a good thing.

My white paper attempts to define concentration risk, how it's mitigated in the private sector, and how well those mitigants translate into Federal lending programs. 

Interested in hearing more? You can download the white paper below. I look forward to your feedback.
