Ratio Analysis to Determine Financial Strength
Credit (Risk) Analysis is one of the most important functions performed by financial institutions.

Because interest and fee income from loans represent the largest source of revenue for financial institutions, thorough credit analysis must be performed before loans are approved and funded.

Credit Analysis starts with spreading historical financial statements and then calculating key ratios to determine the financial health of an organization. This webinar will teach the five vital signs of any organization and the ratios required to identify the signs. A detailed identification and definition of ratios will be included.
