Topics discussed include:
- Defining the business cycle and its four phases
- Understanding how borrowers’ credit needs change over four phases of business cycle
- Identifying industries most vulnerable to recession and those industries less susceptible to recession
- Offering portfolio and credit management techniques and lending options over the business cycle
- Reviewing recession checklist to diagnose and improve commercial loan portfolio management over the business cycle
