Credit Benchmark delivers greater visibility into credit risk via an entirely new source of wholesale credit risk data. Using an innovative crowd-sourced approach, the company publishes monthly consensus credit indicators on Sovereigns, Financial Institutions, Corporates and SMEs by aggregating and anonymizing the internal credit risk assessments of the world’s leading banks. Practitioners in the capital markets benefit from greater transparency with unique credit indicators generated from actual risk takers in the marketplace, as well as access to otherwise unrated entities, including a large number of operating subsidiary companies.
