  • Credit Analysis - Part I

    Credit analysis is the process of determining whether a counterparty will honour its obligations in a transaction. It involves balancing what is gained if they meet their obligation against how much is lost if they do not. To make these assessments, there are a plethora of factors to be taken into account. In this first video of the series, Nick specifically covers three accounts - The Balance Sheet, the Profit and Loss and Cashflow - as factors of a credit analysis.
