What is a Limit Review?

What Happens When You Go Over Your Credit Limit?

A limit review is an activity where the credit officer reviews the limit performance of a customer like their linked accounts, collaterals, customer characteristics etc. and decides on a limit status like Status Quo, Renew, Freeze or Terminate. The review also involves activities like facility migration, credit rating migration, exposure analysis and external credit rating.

The process is initiated either through an automated alert mechanism available in ELCM or by manually invoking the limit review screen through ‘Credit Desktop’. Once the limit review is initiated the system updates the relevant details in the ‘Limit Review Initiation’ screen. This screen displays the list of limits that require a review along with their details like limit type, base date and expiry date. The list can be further narrowed down to a specific facility or line of credit by selecting the respective options.

At this stage you can select the ‘Additional Information’ option to generate a letter asking for additional information from the customer. Similarly, you can click ‘Additional Collateral’ to send the customer a request for depositing more collateral or ‘Limit Freeze’ to block the limit temporarily. You can also select the ‘Remarks History’ option to view the remarks that were updated in previous stages. You can then proceed to the ‘Limit Revision’ page to update the decision of the credit user. This decision is then sent to the approver who can either ‘Approve’ or ‘Reject’ the task.

Why Should I Have a Limit Review?

When a limit review is initiated the officers can decide to freeze, renew or terminate the limit facility. The decision made depends on the officer’s view of the limit performance, the covenant breach or other irregularities like frequent excess utilization so on. In such cases the officer may choose to freeze the limit for external review and/or request collateral from the credit user. The credit user can also select to not accept the freeze of the limit.

How Can I Have a Limit Review?

The limit review process can be initiated in three ways. One way is through an automated alert system available in ELCM. Another way is through the ‘Limits for review’ page in the dashboard. Another way is by launching the initiation screen through BPEL and BPMN models. At each stage, the corresponding tasks need to be executed and web services called in order to complete the transaction.

At ‘Limits for review’, the credit officer reviews the limit performance based on details like linked accounts, collaterals, customer characteristics and utilization trends and other relevant information. This includes a comparison of the current limit with previous limits. If satisfied with the existing limit arrangement, the officer can select a decision option such as Status Quo, Renew, Freeze or Terminate.

The credit officer also revalues collateral details submitted by the customer and conducts exposure analysis. He/she can also upload additional information, including documents and external rating, for this specific limit. The list of ‘checklist items’ updated based on the maintenances in Documents and Facility sub screens are displayed on the ‘Limits for review’ screen. Refer to ‘Processing Limit Review’ in Enterprise Limits and Collateral Management user manual for more details on the limit review process.

What Should I Do if I Have a Limit Review?

The system displays limit review alerts in the ‘Alerts’ section of the dashboard based on the limit review rule maintained in ELCM. If you select the ‘Review’ button on an alert the system initiates a limit review task from the ‘Limit Review Initiation’ screen. Click ‘Freeze’ to freeze the limit facility (similar to a credit block). Click ‘Renew’ to renew the limit if it is about to expire. Click ‘Terminate’ to cancel the limit facility if you have reason to believe there are covenant breaches or irregularities like frequent excess utilization etc. Refer ‘Limit Review Initiation’ and ‘Collateral and Covenant Maintenance’ screens in ‘Enterprise Limits and Collateral Management’ user manual for details on the limit review work flow.

The primary goal of off-page SEO is to build your domain authority (DA) so that you can rank higher in search results. The best way to think about DA is like a bathtub filled with rubber duckies (websites): each additional ducky adds to your domain’s ability to rank, so the more you have in the bath, the higher you will float.

While there are many off-page SEO factors, one of the most important is getting reputable websites to link to your website. This is because links act as a vote of confidence, indicating to search engines that your site is relevant and authoritative. In fact, our 2020 search engine ranking factors study found a strong correlation between total number of backlinks and Google rankings.

There are many strategies for obtaining backlinks, but it’s important to remember that quality over quantity is always the key. Avoid spammy techniques such as purchasing links or submitting your site to unrelated link directories. Instead, focus on acquiring links from reputable sources in your industry. For example, writing a guest post for a well-known blog in your niche is a great way to get high-quality backlinks.

Another off-page SEO tactic is to participate in relevant forum discussions. By commenting on these forums and providing helpful advice and suggestions, you can help other users and build your brand reputation. It’s also important to ensure that all of your off-page SEO efforts are aligned with your overall marketing strategy. This will help you maximize the value of your investment and achieve better search engine rankings.

Off-page SEO tactics can take some time to produce results, so it’s important to get your on-page optimization ducks in a row before investing much time into off-page SEO. However, once you’ve optimized your pages, off-page optimization can provide a significant boost to your rankings.

Link building is a critical aspect of search engine optimization (SEO) and has long been seen as one of the most effective ways to achieve top rankings. Search engines look at the number and quality of backlinks a page has to determine its popularity and relevance. The more popular and relevant a site is, the higher it will rank in searches.

To build links, you need to create content that others will want to share. This could be in the form of blog posts, infographics, videos, podcasts, or other types of content. Then, you need to reach out to other websites and blogs and ask for a link to your content. This is known as link outreach.

In addition, you can also use tools like Moz’s Link Explorer to track the growth of your link profile. Just enter a URL into the tool, and you’ll be able to see the total number of links that resource has earned over time, along with a breakdown by type of link (followed, nofollow, and redirect).

You can also use Link Explorer to identify competitors’ link profiles and assess the health of their websites. For example, you can see the total number of links a competitor has and their average domain authority to find out how much their website is ranking for certain keywords. You can then use this information to improve your own SEO efforts.

However, it’s important to understand that spammy links can hurt your rankings. Avoid using old-school techniques like buying links and participating in link exchanges, which can be seen as manipulative by search engines. Instead, focus on creating high-quality content and pursuing natural backlinks from authoritative sites in your niche.

Link building is not easy, but it’s necessary if you want to increase the visibility of your website and boost your search engine rankings. By following the tips in this article, you can develop a solid foundation for your website’s SEO and start seeing results in no time.
