Webinar: Writing Effective Credit Memos & Loan Narratives



Wednesday, September 10, 2014

2:00 - 3:30 pm CST


Speaker: Lisa Zigo, Brode Consulting Services, Inc.


About the Program

Credit memos are generally associated with commercial lending and are used for new loan requests or renewals, periodic financial reviews, and documenting the file for workout situations and associated action plans. The key to writing effective credit memos and loan narratives is to develop consistently detailed presentations that help decision makers fully understand the nature of the borrower/business, as well as the credit relationship and/or the project being financed. It should identify the risks and explain financial data in terms of key line items, material funds flows, trends, and variances in order to paint the picture of the borrower’s financial condition, ongoing viability, and capacity to meet obligations and projections. The level of detail and analysis should be appropriate to the complexity and size of the relationship, and should always focus on assessing the overall credit risk to ensure the lender has enough information to make sound credit decisions. This webinar will look at how to develop meaningful write-ups and avoid getting caught in the “form-over-function” trap.
