About CCP Exam

INTRODUCTION:

The world is increasingly getting inter connected and complex. Bank credit mechanism has also undergone phenomenal changes in recent years. Few years ago, credit meant only Cash Credit, Overdraft and Loan. Today quasi credit facilities like Letters of Credit, Bank Guarantees, Co acceptances, Buyer’s Credit and Supplier’s Credit are gaining predominance. The bank officer dealing with such products should possess a good knowledge of the product itself to assess the risk involved and judge the repayment capacity of the borrower to honour the liabilities within the agreed timeframe. Credit Appraisal and Risk Appraisal can be considered as two sides of the same coin. Hence, when appraisal aspects are being discussed, be it concerning domestic finance or trade finance for international trade, risk aspects are considered so that the credit officer does not lose sight of the same. The course provides a holistic insight into the various dimensions in bank credit management.
