Underwriting is far more than gathering data and calculating ratios. You need to make judgments about how to manage risk, and these are best when based in experience. Join the CFA Underwriting Fundamentals program from your desk and learn how industry leaders think through credit issues and manage risk.
Highlights of the program include senior ABL executives taking you through credit committee reports and explaining their thought processes. If you are just starting in Underwriting, or if you interested in learning from the best, now is the time!
