Why Credit Benchmark?

Better manage your clearing member network risk exposure

High standards of risk management are integral to the smooth functioning of a CCP.

A lack of reliable credit intelligence on CCP member and member client credit risk at the exact legal entity level can make challenging internal models difficult.

Credit consensus data helps to fill in these gaps on CCP member and member client risk.

Case Study

  The Client
A leading global derivatives clearing house.

 The Challenge
The credit analyst team was spending days inefficiently analysing unrated companies to determine their membership eligibility or when refreshing the house view of existing members. On top of this, the client was concerned about being indirectly exposed to significant second order risk through members’ weaker end clients, and didn’t have the internal resources to assess the credit risk of the 2,000+ entities that made up this second order risk.

 The Solution
The client was able to save time by beginning their analysis of potential new members by checking the entity’s Credit Consensus Rating, making the membership process quicker and easier. The breadth of the consensus dataset, including publicly unrated buy-side names, also allowed the client to better monitor the credit of their members’ clients, and monitor key markets with Credit Benchmark industry, sector, and geography indices.
