CBIZ provides credit analysis outsourcing services.Issue

A nationally chartered bank that serves urban and underserved communities had a high amount of staff turnover that affected its capacity to perform annual reviews of its commercial lending and leasing borrowers on a timely basis. Delays in the credit review process made it more challenging for the bank to identify issues with the assets involved in the bank’s loans, complicating its ability to manage its credit risks.

Solution

Our team outsourced the bank’s credit analysis services to complete the annual reviews in a timely manner. We customized a spreading and analysis service solution to meet the bank’s specific needs. The bank did not have the staffing resources to integrate our standard credit analysis format into the bank’s existing credit memo template, so we reviewed the bank’s template and worked within it to satisfy the bank’s needs.

Outcome

With the help of CBIZ’s experienced staff, the bank had the staffing capacity to complete 45 annual reviews for its commercial borrowers within its mandated time frame. Outsourcing the credit analysis function allowed the bank to more effectively monitor its risks and meet its compliance requirements. Additionally, the master agreement allowed the bank to pay only for the reviews completed with no obligation to continue using CBIZ outside of the engagement, which helped the bank manage its designated project expenses.
