In the latest ACMA Community Blog post, Fellow Ken Miller describes the impact of the imposition and escalation of tariffs, the uncertainty surrounding possible future tariffs, and actions that construction lenders can take to mitigate risks related to those tariffs.

Miller summarizes a variety of ways in which lenders can counter the risk of rising material costs, and also ways by which lenders can anticipate and analyze the future impact of increased material costs on the completion of projects.
