Account Monitoring and Warning Signs Overview

Looking to explore a career as a credit analyst? The Account Monitoring and Warning Signs course will teach you the symptoms and causes of corporate decline, how to predict the default risk for a company, different methods to handling problematic accounts (clients who are struggling to repay loans), and more.

This course starts with the warning signs for a company that is experiencing financial difficulties, as well as the typical symptoms and causes of corporate decline. It then dives into Altman’s Z-score and how it can be used to assess the credit risk of a company.

Afterwards, the default risk of a firm is predicted through different methods including options theory and the Expected Default Frequency (EDF) model. After assessing the likelihood of default, the course explores different strategies and tactics used to deal with deteriorating accounts, including the steps for developing an action plan and turning around a declining business.

This course is great for someone looking to enhance their ability to anticipate corporate decline, assess the credit risk of current companies, and understand how to implement strategies to improve a company’s weakening performance.
