Financial confidence and credit implications: Climbing, coasting or collapsing? posted 12/06/2019







Featuring: John Barlow & Joel Mueller, Barlow Research Associates

As we bring 2019 to a close, we can take a look back at a volatile business market when it comes to economic condition and loan demand. Adding to the uncertainty is an official recession in the manufacturing sector and the persistence of a low interest rate environment. While small businesses ($100K-<$10MM) and middle market companies ($10MM-<$500MM) continue to have confidence in their own financial condition, demand for additional credit has stagnated and there are signs of an impending slowdown in the market.

Join Barlow Research as we discuss small business and middle market economic outlooks from the latest Economic Pulse Study.

In this webcast, you will learn…

  • How trends in economic confidence have impacted loan demand.
  • How the Fed’s use of different inflation indicators may impact the way interest rates should be managed.
  • How small businesses and middle market companies view the state of their company and the economy as they look forward to 2020.

This discussion is designed for anyone involved in relationship management, sales, sales management, line of business strategy, product management, marketing, market research, training or coaching.
