CovenantPulse

Covenant performance trends are a key indicator of changing credit risk. Most of the banks today have a decentralized system of monitoring covenants leading to a fragmented and non-standardized process. Very few banks actually validate the covenant performance and ensure the covenant backstop is valid.

Introducing COVENANTPULSE, an automated covenant monitoring managed service solution, to streamline and uplift your current monitoring process. Gain an in-depth understanding of covenant trends through dashboard reporting and stay ahead of possible deterioration in credit quality in your bank’s lending portfolio.
