Understanding Cash Flow, Global, Traditional and UCA focuses on the analysis of the borrower’s cash flow by comparing the core cash flow analysis tools. The goal is to understand the mechanics as well as the key analysis required to make the most of the information the financial statements provide. The course begins with understanding what is causing a borrower’s cash shortfall. By understanding why the borrower is short of funds, the banker is directed to the correct analysis for meeting the borrower’s need.

The course will include a global cash flow model encompassing the personal financial statement, taxes as well as the income statement and balance sheet to fully assess all the cash flow sources that are available. Traditional cash flow options are presented as ways to do a quick analysis, however their shortfalls are clearly presented. Most importantly, the UCA or “Bankers Cash Flow” is detailed through the relationships it presents as well as building a UCA Cash Statement from given information. Building upon the analysis the banker will be able to develop the right questions for the borrower as to the “why” behind the numbers that the borrower has presented to the banker for the credit request. By using the analysis tools presented correctly, a determination can be made about the creditworthiness of the borrower and the pitfalls that may exist that will jeopardize the repayment.

Course Goal: To prepare attendees to accurately assess the borrower to provide an increased probability of successful repayment as well as a satisfied client.
