After a detailed credit analysis of a loan request has been performed, it's now time to communicate your findings in writing. Credit memoranda are a primary means of communication within the banking industry. When writing effective credit memoranda, it's not what you say that commands attention, but how you say it. Credit memoranda serve three functions: 1) they provide information on the condition and status of a customer relationship; 2) they provide a record of thoughts and actions; and 3) they support or recommend action.
This course teaches skills required to write an effective credit memorandum. Learn to emphasize important factors and trends without stating the obvious. In short, your credit memoranda should present relevant, material facts, along with your thoughts and opinions. Remember, anything you write in a credit memorandum will become public record if you find yourself in court with a borrower.
