Presenter: Richard Hamm, Advantage Consulting & Training

This seminar is designed to strengthen your ability to analyze personal financial statements and loan applications within a simple, logical and consistent framework.  It provides the tools needed to build an assessment of an individual’s financial strength as a direct borrower, or as a guarantor of a business loan.  This assessment provides the foundation for further cash flow analysis, generally from personal tax returns.  Understanding that many banks use an automated process for consumer lending, this program will help participants understand what is happening in the background.
