Program Overview

Cash repays loans--not collateral, not capital, not deposit. Getting a handle on the cash flow that your bank generates and understanding where the cash is going is critical to fully analyzing a loan request.

This course starts by looking at the cash impact linkage between the income statement and balance sheet. The seven core cash drivers of any borrower are detailed, as well as expectations for various industries to assure your borrower is within a norm. A global cash flow model is presented, going through each document where cash can be sourced from. Traditional cash flow analysis is presented with reflections on its shortcomings, as well as when it should not be used. Lastly, UCA cash flow is detailed with the attendees understanding the embedded relationships, the powerful information it provides, as well as how it is used and what can impact it both positively and negatively. Participants will be asked to build a UCA cash flow based on a case study within a group.
