Recent market conditions have forced banks to tighten its lending which is counterproductive as there is a need to lend smarter with a lower level of risk, rather than reducing lending altogether.
The BIBF’s Head of Banking and Accounting Mr. Burhan Deen Jayah stated, “This advanced two day course organised by the BIBF in cooperation with Fitch Learning is designed to enhance the skill levels of senior credit professionals in structuring a healthy credit portfolio for their institution by analyzing client cash flow drivers, liquidity and sector analysis. The course provide credit professionals with training methodologies and effective tools to enhance their experience ultimately making them more dynamic in their roles”
Participants will use a structured and systematic approach to evaluate the credit standing of a company and assess the relative attractiveness of the risk-return profile of the lending/investing proposition. The course is delivered through case studies tailored to the local market allowing participants to apply the concepts acquired during the workshop to a real-life scenario.
