A critical part of any lender’s or credit analyst’s job is analyzing a borrower’s financial condition. The analysis provides perspective on the borrower’s historical performance and provides the foundation for projecting future performance. The analysis should also become a tool to add value to the customer relationship. The lender or analyst can use his or her expertise combined with insight gained from the financial analysis to better focus bank products and services to meet customer needs.
