Credit Benchmark Named In FinTech50 For Third Year Running

Credit Benchmark has been recognized in the FinTech50 list for the third year running. The annual list published by FinTechCity showcases the 50 European FinTech firms doing the most to transform the financial services industry. The 50 companies on the list were chosen from a longlist of more than 1,500 and were announced at a ceremony in the City of London on June 6.

FinTech City launched the FinTech 50 back in 2012 as “a guide to a then emerging landscape,” and has evolved to become “a guide to quality in a very crowded one.”

Founded in 2012, Credit Benchmark delivers greater visibility into credit risk via an entirely new source of wholesale credit risk data. Using an innovative crowd-sourced approach, the company publishes monthly consensus credit indicators on Sovereigns, Financial Institutions, Corporates and SMEs by aggregating and anonymizing the internal credit risk assessments of the world’s leading banks. Practitioners in the capital markets benefit from greater transparency with unique credit indicators generated from actual risk takers in the marketplace, as well as access to otherwise unrated entities, including a large number of operating subsidiary companies.

Credit Benchmark currently publishes data on more than 8,400 separate legal entities using credit views sourced from 13 contributor banks.
