Risikovorsorge

Für alle erkennbaren Risiken wurde ausreichend Vorsorge getroffen. Für zukünftige Zinsunterdeckungen aus zinsverbilligten Darlehen der Bank wurde die Rückstellung aufgestockt.

Many thanks.

English translation:shortage of cover in [projected] interest
Explanation:
(Zahn:) Unterdeckung=shortage of cover etc.

This answer assumes that the subject is the bank issuing the loans from which the reduced interest income accrues [is it?]: The context (zinsverbilligte) suggests a potential shortfall in interest income (which might incidentally make it difficult for the bank to meets its own interest payments).

I have been trying to grade this question for some time now and it appears that the system will not accept my login name etc. I have also received several emails urging me to grade this question despite my attempts to do so and my email to proz explaining why I had not done so already. This very frustrasting since I appreciate the help I have been given but it appears as if I don't and as if nobody is reading the emails I have sent to Proz. Pleae sort this out!
