S&P Capital IQ expands credit solutions suite
S&P Capital IQ has launched a new suite of credit solutions designed to help assess both rated and unrated public and private companies globally with both “point-in-time” and “through-the-cycle” assessments.
Beginning on April 29, this solution will offer a wide range of capabilities to support comprehensive peer analytics, portfolio reviews and counterparty credit assessments as well as assist a wide variety of research, evaluation and management tasks.
S&P Capital IQ’s credit solutions have been developed to enhance supply-chain management, provide access to loan origination and transfer pricing data and, through additional credit solutions and other rich content and functionality on the platform, help users evaluate, monitor and mitigate potential credit risks.
A key component of credit solutions is the Credit Health Panel, which provides a quick and transparent way to analyze the credit quality of an entity relative to its peers.
Using fundamental financial metrics, pre-calculated credit risk measures are available for over 33,000 rated and unrated corporate entities, tracking relative credit health in terms of operational, solvency and liquidity strength. Users can create and track custom groups of listed companies on a worldwide basis.
An advanced search process screens by geography, sector, proprietary S&P CIQ credit scores and Standard & Poor’s credit rating, in addition to twenty-four financial metrics.
Credit solutions on the S&P Capital IQ Platform includes:
– Market Signals Probability of Default (PD): measures daily early-warning signals of credit deterioration for effective risk monitoring.
– CreditModel Scores: quantitatively-derived credit scores to measure and benchmark credit risk, and determine risk based pricing, limit setting and other credit sensitive strategic decisions.
– Customizable analysis templates, including the credit surveillance template: utilizes an Excel plug-in to bring together company fundamental data and credit indicators from the desktop platform into a single Excel interface.
