Risk Insight Video & Blog Series: Credit Risk Assessment Using Bank Scorecards

We are pleased to announce that the S&P Global Market Intelligence Bank Scorecard is now combined with the power of SNL data. Next month, my colleagues and I will be hosting a video “mini-webinar” that will demonstrate how this new tool can be an essential resource for your bank credit analysis.

Watch Bob Durante’s 2 minute video version of this blog.

There is a natural synergy behind the combination of SNL data, with its broad and deep coverage of banks – approximately 26,000 banks (as of August 2016) across all regions, including listed, non-listed and subsidiary banks – and our Bank Credit Assessment Scorecard, with its ability to evaluate the risk position or adequacy of a bank’s risk framework through a process that considers a multitude of risk factors, weightings, benchmarks, and scoring algorithms.

In today’s complex credit markets, it is essential to have a tool that helps you confidently and consistently assess your risk, but it is also important to have a solution that makes it easy, fast, and convenient. Key features include the ability to automate the spreading of financial ratio data using the SNL Excel Add-in tool, a useful scoring convenience for clients. The transparent framework allows for replicability of credit scoring banks -- analyst-to-analyst and year-to-year.
