Course Background

It Since 2007, the global banking sector has experienced unprecedented levels of stress. From historic lows in mid-2007, corporate default rates have hit record highs and would have been even higher but for the large number of “covenant-lite” facilities which became too prevalent at the peak of the credit bubble. Many such facilities are only now beginning to mature, meaning that further stress is likely. With the banking itself facing credit and liquidity constraints, exacerbated by the mooted “Basel III”, the imperatives for bankers are: (i) to be able to identify creditworthy corporates; (ii) to structure risk appropriately (with relevant financial covenants set with appropriate levels of “headroom”); (iii) to obtain sufficient support in terms of collateral, and (iv) to price credits according to their risk. This programme has been designed to guide bankers through this difficult process and to give practical advice on what to do if problems occur.

Taught by Adrian Grant, a leading trainer with Euromoney.

Course Methodology

The course is built around a series of lectures followed by group discussions on the topics covered in each lecture. Numerous real life case studies are used to illustrate key points and delegates will be expected to work in small groups analysing many real examples. All sessions are interactive with the course director inviting questions and ideas from the delegates. He is able to apply his wide experience in responding to such questions in a way that expands the boundaries of the course so as to reinforce the core concepts.
