Global Cash Flow Analysis

Is your customer capable of repaying global debt? That’s the purpose of the joint government regulation requiring credit analysis be performed by an independent party.  That also means independence of the loan decision itself including an independent grading of loans which cannot be achieved if officers are involved in the loan decision.

Analysis creates greater efficiencies and profitability over time in the loan portfolio.

McSwain fills that role and develops a credit memorandum with global cash flow analysis for each bank customer. We provide an upfront standardized checklist for the required information and develop the credit memorandum from the information provided. Upon completion, McSwain submits the package in a PDF format.
