Australian problem loan specialists, building on the lessons learned from the failures of the 1980s and early 1990s, have been at the forefront of problem loan management work across Asia.

This course has been presented in ten countries in Asia, in South Africa and in Netherlands over the past few years. It is successful because it provides a combination of Australian problem loan experience and very deep practical experience derived from managing problem loans in countries as diverse as Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka Nepal, Bangladesh, Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand.
The course makes extensive use of case study materials based on cases in several of these countries. The case studies are presented in a variety of ways, to maintain participant interest.
