The volatile nature of the global economy has made it imperative for financial institutions to have robust credit risk management strategies in place. Covid -19 has brought in further challenges to these existing risk management frameworks due to the sudden halt in supply chains and economic activities affecting the borrower’s capacity to meet their debt obligations.

Legislative interventions via stimulus packages and guidance on providing borrower relief has added to the strain. These have led financial institutions and other organisations to review and focus on their risk function more than ever.

This collaborative webinar organised by CIMA and SLICM will discuss on managing credit risk in current conditions. The webinar will feature industry experts as Aby Eapen -Director Financial Services Advisory – Deloitte India , Krishan Thilakaratne-Director/CEO -Commercial Leasing and Finance PLC, Damith Pallewatte, ACMA, CGMA – Deputy General Manager,Wholesale Banking Group Hatton National Bank Plc, Jithendra Gunatilake, FCMA, CGMA, Head of Compliance LOLC Finance PLC ,Brandon Morris- Group Managing Director -Associated Motorways Private Limited and Mrs.Shiranthi Gunawardene- Attorney-at-law.
