The article focuses on the scrutiny of banks in Northeast Ohio and their future prospects. Several banks have caught the attention of regulators for bad loans, low capital levels or management blunders. According to analysts, banks with issues likely will not mean failure of all the banks or any of them. Banking executive Allen Lencioni Sr. says that banks that must shrink their loan-to-asset ratios or raise their Tier 1 capital are less likely to bring in new business and make new loans.
