This book should enable the reader to learn how to make a good decision on lending to a corporate customer. Corporate strategy and the canons of lending form the basis of this book. Students will need a more complete corporate picture using financial and non-financial information so that they can understand the security, product, and pricing considerations. The book also examines the particular relationship between the lending bank and different corporate customers, including, of course, companies but also partnerships, Limited Liability Partnerships, trusts, non-profit-making bodies and other non-standard/non-personal customers.
Peter Lyons runs his own consultancy practice having spent fifteen years as a banker in corporate lending.
