This book is a must-read for wholesale bankers and other professionals dealing with companies in financial distress.

Heavy Weather Banking provides a structured approach to the various lending mistakes and lessons learned from actual banking practice, and a relevant toolbox on restructuring do's and don'ts, both in terms of content and effective behaviour.

Quickly following the dotcom bubble burst of 2000, and the financial-economic crisis that started in 2008, we are currently experiencing the third major credit crisis of this century. The outcome remains uncertain, but it seems likely that many corporates will struggle to survive.

This textbook on distressed corporate debt restructuring is written from the bank's viewpoint, and concentrates on how the bank should best manage problematic loans, causing as little as possible financial and reputation damage to the bank.

Heavy Weather Banking is not an academic finance book, but rather a practical, easily accessible textbook that provides a comprehensive overview of the many topics, from early warning signals and lessons learned, to reaching a successful restructuring. The book includes many real-life examples.


'This is a valuable addition to the literature on distressed debt and one which I shall be recommending to all of my bank clients and trainees in this space.'
Adrian Grant, Consultant and Trainer on loan origination & restructuring 

'Valuable lessons and tips and tricks both for young professionals as well as more senior specialists.'
Jan Adriaanse, PhD, full professor of turnaround management

Heavy Weather Banking: Corporate Debt Restructuring in Times of Crisis

The COVID-19 crisis is creating big financial problems for many corporates, particularly when current government support comes to an end. The banks are insufficiently prepared to deal with those problems, as former banker and restructuring consultant Rob Wijman writes in his book Heavy Weather Banking. ‘Just like a hospital, a bank needs an Intensive Care department with sufficiently skilled staff.’

Leerzame stof

Heavy Weather Banking is een boek dat niet geschreven is vanuit een wetenschappelijke invalshoek, maar ‘gewoon’ vanuit de praktijk, door een ervaren bankier die jarenlang bij ING Bank gewerkt heeft, voornamelijk in het buitenland.

Zijn boek is in het Engels en vlot geschreven.

Kortom meer dan 270 pagina’s nuttige en leerzame stof voor een ieder die het vak van kredietverlening serieus neemt.
