What is covered?

The principles, theory and practice of corporate credit analysis. We start by looking at credit risk quantification along with mitigation techniques and move on to both traditional and sophisticated methods to analyse performance from a credit perspective.  The course culminates in a case study where delegates will be led through the process of analysing a real company and drawing their own conclusions on debt valuation.
