Crowd-Sourced Credit Transitions


Transition matrices can provide considerable insight into the likely pattern of losses over various time horizons (see summary below) – providing support for compliance with the CECL and IFRS9 accounting rules that require banks and corporates to estimate potential downgrades over the entire life of a loan.

The research, Crowd-Sourced Credit Transition Matrices, is available for instant download here.
