5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly helpful to gain qualitative credit understanding, 14 July 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Standard & Poor's Fundamentals of Corporate Credit Analysis (Hardcover)
I have read this book within a few days. It is very well written and takes you smoothly from one chapter to the next one. Apart from the general analysis framework S&P provides, you also learn quite a lot about specific industries and why one might be more favourable than the other which becomes clear as you understand the general credit analysis framework. If you are intersted in Leveraged Finance, Credits Funds, Hedge Fund positions or generally in credit analysis this is a must-have, highly recommended. The only thing I miss and which would have made the book perfect is the quantitative aspect of the cedit analysis, i.e. it's a bit weak on the credit ratios (debt/EBITDA, interest expense, DSCR) and covers them not very detailed. I found (only) this part better explained in the "A Pragmatist's Guide to Leveraged Finance: Credit Analysis for Bonds and Bank Debt". However, overall a great book worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful For All The Basics, 1 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Standard & Poor's Fundamentals of Corporate Credit Analysis (Hardcover)
All the basics you need to know for credit analysis: evaluating risks, interpreting docs, forecasting and modelling etc. Note, I said basics but this should be enough once mastered. As a credit analyst I found the book quite useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, 15 May 2011
By 
This review is from: Standard & Poor's Fundamentals of Corporate Credit Analysis (Hardcover)
This book provides a satisfactorily comprehensive overview of the qualitative techniques employed by credit analysts to perform credit analysis. This book is good for those who have a good understand of basic accounting/finance.

The best part of this book is the case studies which consolidate readers' understanding and demonstrate credit analysis in real life.
