A Balanced Approach to Credit Analysis

A recent webinar with Moody's Analytics set an attendance record at over 1300 lender participants. The follow up response was tremendous, including a large array of topics. In fact, if I addressed each one, I would be busy well into next year! However, the follow up questions provided valuable insight into the evolving approach to credit. Agriculture is a cyclical industry; and one that is currently in an elongated downturn. Thus, the best approach to credit and customers is one of balance. Actually, a balanced approach is necessary to maintain the stability of credit in agriculture.
