No loan is a good loan if it’s not paid back. Whether a loan is being approved through an automated credit scoring system, individual and concurring authorities, or loan committee, the lender MUST conduct an analysis to help identify the risks involved, and then determine whether or not the approval of that loan is a risk which should be taken.

No one wants to make a loan that does not get repaid.  The purpose of the loan analysis is to look at both the past performance and anticipated future events to determine:

  • Is the purpose one that is stand-alone or one that will change the risk profile?
  • What must happen for the successful repayment? 

While different types of loans present different challenges and underwriting needs, a brief overview of the 5 Cs of credit will lead into the different components and risk factors among the 3 primary loan types, as well as learning WHY you need to look at more than meets the eye.
