This course is made for bank practitioners from front office, back office and central units who are confronted with credit risk. By attending this practical and informative course, you will be able to understand credit risk in all its facets, quantitative and qualitative ones. When assessing the credit risk of an SME you are overwhelmed with information. The course helps you to structure the information and focus on the crucial risk drivers, so you can develop an integrated strategy for the identification, analysis and mitigation of credit risks, both on client as well as portfolio level. In addition, the course develops an understanding for the organizational aspects of a bank’s credit business with regard to structures and processes. This enables financial institutions not only to manage credit risk, but to do it in an efficient cost saving manner.
Anybody in a corporate banking environment, including relationship managers and support staff who deal directly with customers in their roles. Additionally, staff in credit sanctioning or credit administration roles will benefit from attending. Ideally, attendees will not be new-to-role, as the training is not aimed at foundation level. However, if they have experience of working with financial statements, then exceptions can be made.
