Last year, we saw SBA business development compensation levels approaching pre-recession levels.
More compensation changes are occurring in 2015 to SBA business development officers who earn their primary income originating SBA 7(a) or 504 loans.
Join us for this 8th annual Coleman webinar analyzing how compensation changed in 2014, and more importantly what are the trends for 2015.
Selling SBA loans is a complicated endeavor.
The professional sales staff must be continually trained on the changes in various SBA lending programs. In addition, BDOs must have a thorough understanding of the lender’s current credit box and devise and execute strategies to find loans that match the needs of small business clients while meeting the requirements of the lender.
Only when deals are finally funded do lenders pay up incentives to the BDO for their service.
We will examine what the industry perceives is reasonable, from the perspective of both the BDO and the employer.
The landscape has changed significantly over the past several years. The first casualties in SBA professional employment were at the sales level. Many lenders shed these positions as they cut back on their small business lending. But with SBA lending rebounding, (2014 was the highest year ever in SBA lending) lenders have restaffed these positions in order to slowly rebuild their SBA lending portfolio.
And, with new compensation models.
We’ll examine in-depth the results of the Coleman 2015 SBA BDO compensation survey.
We have survyed over 150 BDOs and interview numerous national, regional and community bank lenders to accurately report the current trends in the industry.
We will discuss the survey results:
• Total compensation packages
• Compensation benchmark statistics
• Base salary benchmark statistics
• How commissions are structured
• Challenges facing the BDO today
• The Loyalty factor, for both the BDO and lender
Last year, the survey breakdowns the compensation numbers by the five volume buckets:
• Over $20 million – Rock Star
• $15 to $20 million – Above Average
• $10 to $15 million — Good
• $8 to $10 million – Average
• Under $8 million – Below Average
You will learn:
• The results of the just released Coleman Report 2015 SBA BDO Compensation Report
• How compensation packages are structured
• Common commissions on a 7(a) loan
• Common commissions on a 504 loan
• The commission matrix — elements lenders are using for commission payments
• How national lenders pay their sale force
• What regional and community bank lenders are doing in structuring compensation
• Tiered commission payments — paying more for more production
• Examining the true cost of production, and why “Above Average” producers are the best value for the lender
• What lenders should expect to pay for $1 million of loan production.
• The impact of the SBA 7(a) and SBA 504 secondary markets on BDO compensation
• Milestone bonus programs
• Common clawbacks provisions
• What’s happening with broker fees
