Credit Consensus Ratings

Credit Consensus Ratings provide a unique measure of creditworthiness on 80,000 counterparts and borrowers across emerging and developed markets, based on inputs from 40+ leading global financial institutions, almost half of which are GSIBs. 90% of the entities covered are otherwise unrated, providing a new, unique perspective of risk and liquidity.

Credit Consensus Ratings are supplemented by descriptive analytics that provide insights into the underlying credit views that make up the consensus.

The Watch List helps with portfolio monitoring, leveraging Credit Consensus Ratings and descriptive analytics to provide insights into entities that are experiencing credit deterioration.

They provide insights into the real-world risk views of the world’s most experienced risk takers.

LGD Data

Credit Benchmark also collects and aggregates Senior Unsecured Loss Given Default (LGD) views from leading global financial institutions and produces consensus analytics from these contributed views at both entity and sector aggregate levels.
