Focus your attention where and when it matters most with access to the largest and most timely source of credit risk data globally.
Credit Benchmark provides a data-driven view of credit risk, offering coverage, detail, and collective insight available nowhere else. First, we collect the entity-level credit risk views of the world’s leading financial institutions. Next, we map, cleanse, anonymize and aggregate these raw contributions to create a ‘credit consensus’, delivered to our clients every two weeks.
The resulting Credit Consensus Ratings, Indices & Analytics are an entirely unique product backed by real-world market sentiment. Rather than the 'issuer pay model', it represents the views of those with 'skin in the game'.
