Consensus Ratings

Consensus Ratings provide a unique measure of creditworthiness on 50,000+ counterparts and borrowers across emerging and developed markets, based on inputs from 40+ leading global financial institutions. 75% of the entities covered are otherwise unrated, providing a new, unique perspective of risk and liquidity.

Consensus Ratings are supplemented by descriptive analytics that provide insights into the consensus. Important trends, signals, and early warnings can be uncovered from the descriptive analytics of each Consensus Rating.

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