Learn how and when to use global cash flow
Global Cash Flow provides financial professionals like you with a commercial lending risk assessment tool to 1) estimate the probability of loan repayment from a business and its owners as borrowers or guarantors and 2) make an informed credit decision by combining the information in the business and personal cash flow statements to determine whether the combined global cash flow is sufficient to service the debt of the business, its owners, and its guarantors.
Learning how to use the global cash flow (GCF) tool will require you to know the components of GCF, the resources needed to construct a GCF, and to differentiate book income from cash flow in judging repayment ability.
Global Cash Flow includes large and small group activities (based on a case study) that are woven through the course and poses questions to enhance your understanding of global cash flow and its impact on the case company. You will learn by practice, which in turn increases retention. Further, practice facilitates your ability to apply the course’s content when you return to your job.
