Read our latest case study which discusses how S&P Global Market Intelligence was able to help a large American multinational energy company, active in more than 65 countries around the world and with thousands of customers, suppliers, buyers, and other counterparties stay on top of potential credit risk.
Using the S&P Capital IQ platform to Mitigate Risk
In order to manage the firm’s diverse range of counterparties, S&P Global Market Intelligence was able to help the firm's Credit Group manage the risk of:
- Rated entities with access to an extensive universe of credit ratings and associated research from S&P Global Ratings. Including coverage for global issuers, public finance and government entities as well as structured finance transactions.
- Unrated public companies with access to the S&P Capital IQ platform’s standardized financial statements covering over 99% of the global market capitalization, spanning more than 130 countries and 100 currencies. The information can be put into S&P Global Market Intelligence’s proprietary Credit Analytics suite of statistical models to quantitatively derive credit scores that align with the performance of credit ratings from S&P Global Ratings.
- Private companies with financial statement data for counterparties who provide their financial information, this is entered into an Excel spreadsheet and—with a click of a button—uploaded to the S&P Capital IQ platform to be stored alongside other relevant data needed for in-depth risk assessments. These private counterparty financials are automatically “pushed” to the Credit Analytic suite of models to derive credit scores.
- Private companies without financials with proxy measures of risk at the industry level generated by a second S&P Global Market Intelligence proprietary model that uses fundamental data to score approximately 150 industries for detailed 8-digit GICS codes.
