Credit plays an important role in the lives of many individuals; it’s also a key source of funding for businesses making capital expenditures (CAPEX). In this course we discuss important lending topics like the difference between traditional loans and trade credit, different types of interest, different types of loans, where collateral security fits in, and how to build an amortization schedule for reducing term debt. We cover an overview of the 5 Cs of Credit framework and how it may influence different loan characteristics, before diving into some qualitative assessment tools and a list of the key financial ratios that an analyst would look at when evaluating a company’s creditworthiness. We also take a step back to look at the credit landscape in order to help learners understand what kinds of career opportunities exist for aspiring credit professionals.
