Lending money is a risky business and sometimes lending decisions, with hindsight, can prove wrong. No lender should be criticized if their original judgement was based on thorough reasoned analysis of all the facts available at the time of lending. However, criticism is justified if a lending goes wrong because of a failure to spot obvious warning signs, because of poor monitoring and control, and/or any delay in taking prompt remedial action. As Covid-19 impacts on our lives it brings unprecedented factors in how we monitor our loan portfolios and how bankers and our customers manage their businesses.
