Our Credit Team - Renovo Financial





Managing Risk is the Nature of Lending

In order to properly manage credit risk over time, it is essential that a sound credit process be in place, which has as its foundation a clear, well-understood credit philosophy. Renovo’s Credit Committee provides a layer of internal controls, having the responsibility for approving or disapproving all requests for loans.
