Brian Kemp owes more than $800,000 in insider loans to bank he helped start

Ganduri says bank loans to insiders, like Kemp, are governed by Federal Reserve laws. He says some bankers like making these loans to wealthy board members and shareholders since they're good credit risks and wouldn't want to harm the bank. But others worry about insider loans for one main reason. “There are potential conflicts of interests. The insiders can treat these loans as a private piggy bank,” says Ganduri. Ganduri says the Federal reserve sets strict requirements that loans be on the same terms a bank would give any other borrower. In short: no special terms or advantages.

Apartment Prices on the Decline 

View Answer >

For the first time in five years, apartment prices have fallen for the past six months. Research from Apartment List shows the median rent in January was 3.4% less than the cost of the same apartment in August. The reasons include recent layoffs, rent prices forcing some to live with family and finally, the biggest delivery of new supply in over twenty years. Rohan Ganduri, assistant professor of Finance at Goizueta Business School, explains why now is the time to negotiate renewals and while the decline is nice for renters, overall prices are still much higher than they were prior to the pandemic.
