The first four C’s—capacity, conditions, collateral, and character-- evaluate a borrower’s ability to repay, but character forces the lender to examine closely the borrower’s willingness to repay. 


Areas to be discussed include:

  • capacity measured by the ability to repay from cash flow
  • conditions evaluated in terms of how borrowing needs change over the business cycle and what makes some industries more vulnerable to downturns than others
  • collateral analyzed in terms of relative liquidation values
  • capacity considered in terms of the borrower’s equity cushion and the degree of relative leverage possible
  • character assessed in terms of willingness to repay as evidenced by payment history as well as tips for fraud prevention

Bankers have relied on the 5 C’s of credit—capacity, conditions, collateral, capital, and character for many years, but what do these terms really mean, and how do lenders use them to determine whether a potential borrower is creditworthy?  This credit model is simple to understand and easy to use.  Attend the session to C for yourselves.
