Beth Mitchell Presents ‘REFA Fundamentals: HVCRE- Scalpel or Blunt Instrument?’Print PDF
Beth H. Mitchell, a partner in Nutter’s Real Estate and Finance Department and co-chair of the firm's Commercial Finance practice group, will present at the Real Estate Finance Association’s (REFA) Fundamentals of Real Estate program “HVCRE-Scalpel or Blunt Instrument?” on June 23. The program will focus on the HVCRE (High Volatility Commercial Real Estate) rule which was reintroduced as part of Basel III. It became effective for banks with assets above $50 billion in January 2014 and banks with assets below $50 billion in January 2015. The rule is designed to require banks to hold more capital for A&D loans whose borrowers have less than 15 percent of the as completed value of their projects invested as cash before the bank funds its loan.
