Borrower Risk Rating Models

Project Title: Borrower Risk Rating Models for corporate and SME borrowers
Problem: The existing rating models of the bank were not adequate to properly assess the credit risk of borrowers. The Regulators had conveyed their displeasure.

Solution: It involved the following-

  • Study of the bank’s credit portfolio, existing products and in house expertise
  • Developing and designing rating models and supporting manuals for corporate and SME borrowers.
  • Development of excel based macros to support the designed models
  • Corporate rating models were customized for manufacturing, services and trading sectors.
  • Back testing of the models
  • Conducting workshops for concerned credit officers/managers explaining the process and ensuring uniform implementation
