Determining When to Term Out a Line of Credit

Credit & Lending

A line of credit (LOC) is a valuable lending tool for a borrower that needs working capital. However, if a client’s situation changes and long term repayment will be affected, the bank needs to assess when and how to term out their loan. This session will provide guidance on what to do–before the line goes bad and after the borrower has defaulted. The emphasis will be on the former because if the problem can be identified beforehand, mitigating the risk can be done by terminating the line and terming the balance out.

Who Should Attend: Credit Analysts, Credit Specialists, Junior & Senior Lenders, Underwriters, Relationship Managers, Business Bankers, Commercial Lenders, Business Development Officers

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the purpose of line of credit–what should it be funding and how should it get repaid
  • Understand underwriting the line of credit-purpose, amount, tenor, collateral, guarantees, covenants and conditions
  • Discuss red flags of line of credit problems
  • Understand solutions for problem line of credits–calling the line and terming it out
