Industry and Management Evaluation for Lenders

Credit & Lending

Before an institution reviews a borrower’s financials, an evaluation of the industry and management structure needs to be conducted to ensure long term repayment success. This webinar will show how various industries tend to create an economic bubble within and how their management is tasked with strategizing growth and being profitable. Even in troubled industries, there are always a few firms, e.g., Southwest Airlines and Jet Blue in the airline industry, who have been successful.  This session will show how to analyze the borrower’s industry and its impact on management’s ability to repay.
