About This Webinar

In August, 2007, Arnold Ziegel, the author of “Fundamentals of Credit and Credit Analysis” was told by the head of Citi’s corporate loan syndications activity that Citi was highly exposed to the failing residential loan market.  He said that “it’s not a problem in the consumer bank, which wasn’t making sub prime residential mortgage loans,  it’s a problem in the investment banking portfolio”.  It subsequently turned out that Citi lost close to $100 billion in the process of underwriting Collateralized Mortgage Obligations (CMO’s).  The underlying mortgages turned out to have huge credit losses and little value.

The financial crisis that began in 2007 had a primary underlying cause – flawed credit analysis.

The purpose of credit analysis is to establish the degree of risk that a credit obligation will be repaid in accordance with it terms. How this assessment is accomplished, cash flow forecasting and/or collateral valuation,  is the art of credit analysis.
