Description

Underwriting is far more than gathering data and calculating ratios. You need to make judgments about how to manage risk, and these are best when based in experience. Underwriting Level One will help the underwriter hone his/her skills in setting up lending parameters on prospective deals by underwriting how all the pieces fit together. Learn how industry leaders think through credit issues and manage risk.

Topics include...

  • A thorough and systematic overview of the key aspects of underwriting
  • How to deepen awareness and understanding of assessing risks
  • How to develop deeper questioning skills to identify inconsistencies and potential fraud
  • How to develop a stronger ability to propose strategies to minimize the key risks for that client and report effectively to a credit committee
