The banking profession today is a nice career for all students from the commerce, economics, and accounts domains. Internal Credit Risk Rating System (ICRR) is nowadays one of the most spoken topics in the banking sector. This training on Internal Credit Risk Rating System (ICRR) is designed in such a way for the business graduates who are interested to start their careers in banks and other financial institutions and also existing bankers.The aim of credit risk management is to maximize a bank’s risk-adjusted rate of return by maintaining credit risk exposure within acceptable levels. Banks need to manage the credit risk inherent in the entire portfolio as well as the risk in individual borrower transactions. The effective management of credit risk is a critical component of a comprehensive approach to risk management and is essential to the long-term success of any banking organization. Since exposure to credit risk continues to be the leading source of problems in banks, banks should have a keen awareness of the need to identify, measure, monitor, and control credit risk as well as to determine that they hold adequate capital against these risks and they are adequately compensated for risks incurred. The Internal Credit Risk Rating System describes the creditworthiness of the borrower of a particular sector based on the assessment criteria set for that sector. Since the leverage, liquidity, profitability, as well as other quantitative and qualitative indicators, vary significantly from sector to sector, the ICRRS is developed to calibrate such diversities into the rating system.ICRR refers to the system to analyze a borrower’s repayment ability based on information about a customer’s financial condition including their liquidity, cash flow, profitability, debt profile, market indicators, industry and operational background, management capabilities, and other indicators.
