Lending To Local Government Units

Webinar: ID# 1023502
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Most banks don't specialize in lending to municipalities and other governmental units. When the opportunity presents itself, those banks struggle to perform proper credit analysis to determine creditworthiness. Learn the major credit factors to examine to predict the repayment capability of a municipality or other governmental unit.

Some credit opportunities in this area can lead to lucrative fee-based business, such as cash management and investment management. Also, financial institutions with a relationship with local municipalities can create significant goodwill in the community, which can translate into more business.

Learn the major differences between credit analysis on local governments and commercial real estate / commercial and industrial type borrowers. Learn appropriate information to request and how to use financial data and other information to effectively underwrite this type of borrower. Also, learn how to identify opportunities to market the proper type of credit facilities to local governments.

Covered Topics:
  • Different types of local government structures in the U.S. in order to determine potential credit-worthy government structures
  • How to complete a review and financial analysis of a municipality's financial statement
