About the Webinar

Credit enhancements have always been a good backstop to maximize your company’s ability to get paid. In light of the current economy, credit enhancements are an even more important tool to maximize recovery when dealing with less creditworthy customers. But just because you have a credit enhancement in place does not mean that it is enforceable or collectible. A credit enhancement that is done wrong means that you might not have the credit enhancement that you think you have, and could strip away your opportunity to maximize recovery from a distressed customer.

In this session, our speakers will explore:

  • Various forms of credit enhancements that can be useful.
  • How you can utilize the credit enhancement you obtain in order to collect in the event of a customer default. 
  • How to ensure that that your guaranty is enforceable.
  • How to perfect your purchase money security interest in order to jump ahead of the line when it comes time to collect.
