Gr8 An excellent book The book is very good It covered almost all the topics related to Credit Bond market, CDS, Financial analysis in the perspective of credit analyst This book is very useful for a starter as well a professional in Credit market The topics were also structured in a very perfect manner The author with all his experience has given all the relevant example were ever required The case studies will give the real case scenarios, that will give both the practical and theoretical knowledge A perfect book to read if you want a career in Credit markets A very interesting and informative book on corporate credit analysis, which stresses the importance of a comprehensive borrower analysis external and internal factors, financial and descriptive facts, etc for a balanced and realistic judgment of the borrower s creditworthiness Praiseworthy is i.a the clear writing style and combination of theory with examples I also liked the chapter on working capital management, however, in order to avoid potential misunderstanding of the notion of net working capital, which is used by finance people to denote different concepts, two different terms could be used like e.g working capital needs or net working assets on the one hand and net working capital as long term financing source of working capital needs on the other hand I wished a in depth discussion of the proper category of cash flow to be used as cash flow available for debt service before or after capex, before or after working capital changes, and for 2 cases when we have only historical financials and try to extract from them a CF that can be deemed sustainable, i.e likely to be repeated in similar amount in the future years, and when we have financial projections All in all I find it a sound and recommendable book on credit analysis both for novice analysts despite the word advanced in the title given the clear language and explanations and for seasoned bankers to refresh and enrich their knowledge given the good quality of the topic treatment. Excellent practical insight and enlightening case studies applying the theories Explore various scenarios with real life examples relevant to practitioners The coverage is both broad and in depth Will certainly enjoy this one.
