Credit Risk Course


All companies are exposed to credit risk. Financial firms are further exposed to credit risk as they actively take credit risk to generate income.

Effective credit risk management is key to reducing revenue costs. Our Credit Risk module covers the basics of credit risk management.

This course will help your employees to understand what credit risk is, its components and how to recognise credit events. It also covers the key markers of creditworthiness, as well as retail and corporate credit analysis.
