Portfolio Review

Efficient management of the loan portfolio and the credit function is critical to the well-being and soundness of a bank’s business. Reviewing the risks associated with your existing portfolio of customers enables better account and risk management, and improved trend monitoring.

Portfolio Review is the process by which risks that are intrinsic in the credit process can be overseen and controlled. The Portfolio Review Report, also termed as off-line batch monitoring, provides a comprehensive view of borrowers’ credit relationships across multiple lenders. This provides you with an opportunity to deepen your portfolio execution, extend relationships with key clients and improve business returns.

Historically, Portfolio Review has also been used to understand the institution’s aggregate credit risk, improve returns on those risks and identify cross-sell and up-sell opportunities through an off-us and on-us analysis.
