Improving Credit Surveillance Using a Spectrum of Approaches
Rising credit volatility over the last two decades has heightened the need for improved credit surveillance by financial institutions, non-financial corporations and investment firms.
Firms are increasingly aware that another wave of default might be triggered by various “sleeping volcanoes of credit risk”, including the potential impact of sovereign defaults, geopolitical events such as the Ukraine crisis and instability in the Middle East, the withdrawal of quantitative easing, and slow-downs in developing economies.
As credit surveillance becomes more critical, it is also becoming more complex. Finding a way to conduct fast, accurate and scalable credit analysis is thus a priority for all firms with credit exposures.
In this report, discover how to understand the pros and cons of the two principal families of credit measures – those based on market signals and those based on more fundamental credit factors – so you can be built into a systematic “multi-horizon” credit surveillance approach.
