Lending Newsletter

This quarter we have been on our toes, collaborating with new clients on their lending transformation journey, relaunching our covenant monitoring and validation software and increasing support to trade finance businesses – all this even as we enhance support across the value chain to existing clients amid higher workloads and an ongoing staffing crunch.

Do read our CEO’s view on how we see front office, credit risk and credit admin teams grappling with attrition, making it incredibly difficult for banks to stay focused on their transformation agenda.
