Credit Risk

Credit risk is the risk arising from the uncertainty of an obligor’s ability to perform its contractual obligations. Credit risk could stem from both on- and off-balance sheet transactions. An institution is also exposed to credit risk from diverse financial instruments such as trade finance products and acceptances, foreign exchange, financial futures, swaps, bonds, options, commitments and guarantees.
