Why Credit Benchmark?

Navigate the credit risk of customers, supply chains, financial counterparts, and investments

Corporate treasury departments often have numerous customers, partners, and suppliers around the world. They also tend to have complex supply chains with hard to identify second and third order risks.

Credit Benchmark’s unique coverage of 100,000 legal entities around the world, the majority of which are unrated by major rating agencies, can help corporate treasurers better understand and manage these risks.

How we can help your business

Case Study

  The Client
The accounts receivable team at a large FTSE 250 company needed a better understanding of their revenue vulnerability amidst the COVID-19 crisis.

The Challenge
The client’s main points of concern were to understand their customers’ credit risk, and to seek additional intelligence for their contract review and negotiation processes. The vast majority of their customers were publicly unrated and their existing external credit reference sources were sometimes a year out of date.

The Solution
After running a comprehensive mapping and coverage exercise on their largest exposures, the client was satisfied that Credit Benchmark would provide them with a valuable source of credit risk information enormously additive to their existing workflows. They were also happy that Credit Benchmark was able to do the heavy lifting of mapping to their internal database and customising the data to fit seamlessly into their own internal systems and dashboards. We were also able to provide the client with their own credit tear sheets to use for accounts payable negotiations.
