Relying on an independent review firm may be attractive to a bank in its effort to eliminate the politics that can accompany the grading process.



Loan Review

CEIS loan review programs are implemented by experienced senior lenders who often have senior or executive level management experience. The professionals who deliver the CEIS product were associated with money market, regional banks, community banks, and commercial finance companies.

CEIS' loan review programs are customized to the client's needs and are software assisted. The programs typically review over a twelve month period as much as 75% of the client's average outstanding loans and letters of credit. The loan reviews are conducted at specified intervals during the engagement period and address, at each visit, a sufficient sample to satisfy the twelve-month target. At each regularly scheduled review, we update the data and remarks regarding the previously criticized and classified loans.



Further, we review newly criticized or classified loans, delinquencies, non-accruals, restructured transactions, new and renewed commitments since the prior review visit, and when relevant, other borrower related credit exposures. We test the adequacy of the allowance for loan and lease losses as well as critique the organization's lending policies and procedures and overall lending process.



Loan Loss Reserve

CEIS analyzes and tests the methodology underlying the specific and general allocations that are applied in the client's periodic assessment of loan loss reserves. CEIS analyzes the portfolio experience of the last five to ten years including the migration of loan grades, loss experience, reliability of loan grading system, changes in portfolio mix, trends in portfolio risk in view of concentrations such as large loan exposures, loan types, collateral types, industry and loan gradesm, delinquency and non-accrual trends, off balance sheet commitments, the loss experience of its "peers", and other factors relevant to the client portfolio profile. After the "base report", CEIS periodically updates the data, observations and conclusions.
