The best time to identify potential credit problems is before a loan is made. Loan officers and credit analysts must be able to identify viable loans based on business and borrower information provided by the applicant. Identifying and mitigating potential weaknesses sooner means less time spent pursuing loans that are outside of a financial institution’s acceptable risk.

This webinar will review key indicators used by industry experts to predict a borrower’s strengths and weaknesses. Once a decision is made to move forward, regulatory guidance requires a comprehensive review of the borrower’s financial condition, including the long-term viability of the business. This webinar will focus on potential loan weaknesses to be aware of during the interview and underwriting processes.
