Why Credit Benchmark?
Understanding the optimal industry and rating can help benchmark portfolio-wide RWA optimization to drive the most capital-efficient business. The ability to understand what others think can help inform and support decisions to revise classifications that are detrimental.
Access to Credit Consensus Ratings on 100,000+ legal entities, including banks, subsidiaries, CCPs, members, asset managers, and their underlying funds, helps clients measure, manage, and monitor counterparty risk on all sides more quickly. Alerting and monitoring capabilities track any portfolio credit risk movements.
Getting permission to do business with unfamiliar or unrated counterparts is a significant challenge for any business and an obstacle for peer-to-peer flow. Credit Benchmark facilitates and speeds up approval of new types of counterparts.
Consensus data seamlessly integrates into agent reporting systems, providing borrower and beneficial owner information. This data helps fill the data gaps and speeds up counterparty trading approvals.
Credit Benchmark’s coverage of 38,000 funds can help improve the understanding and decision-making process by providing transparency and the ability to focus, prioritize and optimize management of capital and RWAs to do more business.
Credit Benchmark data expands collateral eligibility by combining entity-level ratings with open-source notching to the security level, offering benefits across the market and to its participants.
