Risk Library provides a number of credit risk white papers, industry reports and opinions, which can be used to aid the decision making process and to reduce your organisations credit risk exposure.

Credit risk is the type of risk that a lender assumes. As a form of compensation for taking on the risk, a lender receives interest repayments at an agreed upon rate. However, if a borrower defaults on agreed repayments, lenders may lose the partial or full sum and interest of the loan. This could result in the lender incurring further costs such as collection of debt owed and disruption to cash flow.
