Customers of Sageworks’ ALLL and stress testing solutions will have the opportunity to attend exclusive user sessions. These valuable sessions will enable users to ask questions and learn best practices from Sageworks’ risk management consultants, and other users.

Past Risk Management Summits have received rave reviews. “I thought the Summit as a whole was very good, with very good content. In fact, the best such seminar/conference event I have ever attended in terms of directed content and knowledgeable presenters,” said one attendee. Another noted, “The topics were timely and helped to validate the things we are doing right, as well as provide knowledge and insight about areas where we can make strategic and operational improvements.”
