This course, the first in the Moody’s Analytics credit series, provides a solid foundation of best practice tools and techniques for fundamental credit analysis.
This four-day course concentrates on single obligor analysis, both qualitative and quantitative. The topics covered enable credit practitioners to review real market situations and assess cash flow and credit implications.
Where applicable, we draw on the research and publicly available rating methodologies of our sister company, Moody's Investors Service. Credit issues are analyzed from theoretical and practical perspectives, using recent market examples. We provide a set of “tools” which are practical aids and complement those of other seminars.
