Identify, monitor and control risks within your bank’s commercial loan portfolio
Credit decisions that are sound at the time of origination can be undermined over time by internal factors within the bank’s control and by external factors such as general or local economic or environmental conditions. Sheshunoff’s Commercial Loan Review and Audit Manual is designed to help you identify, monitor and control risks to reduce commercial loan losses and will allow you to take prompt corrective action before the safety and soundness of the loan portfolio becomes a serious issue.
This manual and CD help you develop and maintain a comprehensive loan review process, which is the most effective and reliable tool available for the early identification of risk. An effective loan review process helps you provide candid feedback on the loan portfolio and enables senior management and the board to act on corrective plans before the regulators examine the portfolio and point out exceptions, violations and other potential problems.
Sheshunoff’s Commercial Loan Review and Audit Manual guides you through the entire process for both commercial loan reviews and commercial loan compliance reviews, including:
