Counterparty risk assessment is an important tool in today’s challenged economic environment, where numerous counterparties are defaulting. Establishing a routine methodology is essential for companies to mitigate financial and performance default risk, particularly for key suppliers such as Engineering Procurement & Construction Management (EPCM) firms, who might not be able to deliver on their commitments.
This 1-day course offered in partnership with DC Corp provides a greater understanding of conducting counterparty risk assessment of a wide range of entities in the oil and gas sector. The course provides in-depth, hands-on analysis of various entities’ financial statements along with other important components that should be assessed when choosing partners and suppliers. It also helps with determining whether to do business on a secured or unsecured basis.
The course is designed for a wide range of individuals at different levels of seniority, including analysts, business and technical managers, executives and board members.
