Course description

Analysis, modelling, and management of credit risk are no longer just for banks and other financial institutions. Small businesses and individuals can also use them. However, growing competition and statutory/legislation requirements will hurt any organisation that doesn’t pay attention to risk management. All firms need a strong credit assessment, modelling, and management system to manage credit risk. Risk management efficiently identifies, measures, manages and implements a risk management model. Most risk management strategies have greatly boosted consumer credit growth if done effectively. Most organisations cannot grant clients credit without models, new tools, and procedures. The need for a risk management model is now universally acknowledged by all parties involved in a company.

What is credit risk analysis?

Credit risk analysis evaluates the likelihood of default by aborrower and the potential loss to a lender or creditor if a default occurs. This involves analysing various financial and non-financial factors, such as the borrower’s credit history, income, and debt-to-income ratio, to determine therisk associated with lending money to them. Credit risk analysis aims to minimise potential losses to the lender while also providing credit to those who need it. The outcome of credit risk analysis is usually expressed as a credit score or a rating that indicates the borrower’s creditworthiness.
