        Analyzing Personal Financial Statements & Tax Returns >

        One of the more challenging aspects of lending is analyzing personal financial statements and tax returns. Assessing the borrower’s ability to convert assets to cash to pay short-term debt or honor a guaranty often requires significant adjustments to the borrower’s reported net worth. Adjusted gross income on Form 1040 bears no relationship at all to cash available to pay personal living expenses and debt service. To determine cash available, the lender must construct a personal cash flow using information contained in the personal financial statement and schedules of the tax return. Lenders recognize that the business and personal financial affairs of small business borrowers are closely intertwined necessitating the integration of business and personal cash flow to determine global cash flow.

        Training the Credit Analyst - 2 day seminar >

        This two day program is designed to provide lenders and analyst the tools required to understand and use financial information provided by borrowers. The key to producing high quality analysis is being able to understand the actions or inactions of your borrower’s management team. We then must be able to ask the borrowers the “Right” questions. The goal is to measure risk, develop loan structure, and the capacity to repay the loan. The Loan Officer/Analyst must be able to communicate that information to Loan Committee and the customer. Ultimately, good Loan Officers are able to provide value-added information that allows their borrowers to make better business decisions. More >
