Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) November 6, 2006
Omega Performance announced today the availability of Advanced Credit Analysis—a series of half-day, highly interactive clinics for experienced commercial lenders. The Advanced Credit Analysis clinics build upon the foundational knowledge and skills imparted in the company's Commercial Loans to Business training program by focusing on more complicated credit issues. Omega Performance's expert credit risk specialists will coach lenders to employ advanced analytical techniques that speed analysis, improve accuracy, and minimize portfolio risk enabling them to recommend loan structures appropriate to the conditions.
"Experienced risk managers and commercial lenders need advanced analytical skills and knowledge to effectively evaluate complex commercial lending opportunities," said Vicki Martell, Omega Performance vice president-product manager, credit and commercial sales. "Our Advanced Credit Analysis clinics deliver high-impact risk analysis techniques, and the interactive format of the clinics gives experienced lending professionals the opportunity to share knowledge. This powerful combination enhances participants' skills in financial accounting, analysis, and credit structuring."
Advanced Credit Analysis clinics are led by an expert facilitator trained in both adult education as well commercial credit, and feature case studies that each focus on a unique set of commercial risk management issues. The cases challenge participants to perform an intensive financial analysis to identify and mitigate the business and financial risks to both the prospective borrower and the lending institution, and structure appropriate credit solutions. Participants leave the clinic equipped to make better commercial credit decisions, thus reducing the risk of non-performing loans that could erode the institution's credit quality and profitability.
This week, Omega Performance also launched its "Accelerate Your Lending Performance" campaign which promotes the many complimentary tools and resources available for download on the company's website, including an eBook on analyzing business borrowing cases, and an online demonstration of the Commercial Loans to Business training program.
Through the company's 30+ years of successfully training credit professionals around the globe, it has discovered the importance of a financial institution's commercial lending and training functions working collaboratively to ensure its commercial lenders continuously improve their credit underwriting skills. Consequently, Omega Performance has enabled a unique online mechanism for the Accelerate Your Lending Performance campaign that allows these two important functions to share the company's tools and resources.
