Who are Credit Analysts?

Credit analysts are professionals who are assigned the job of analyzing and concluding the creditworthiness of various customers and businesses. Most of their job includes examining the applications of credit and deciding if a particular person is worthy of the lenders’ money and can pay them back with other costs.

They also analyze various financial information like income and expense statements, profit and loss statements, cash flow statements, etc. One of the most important jobs of a credit analyst is to ascertain the creditworthiness of a person based on his or her salary or business income and then assign him a credit limit i.e. how much credit can a person take at a given time.
Credit analysts also decide on the rate of interest to be paid by the borrower on the amount of loan taken by him frequently. Credit analysts also conduct credit reviews of the current customer base and also resolve any credit-related issues their customers face. Risk analysis and trend pattern tracking are also very important functions of a credit analyst.
