Support for the monitoring of borrowings and for the optimisation of credit risk management

Substantiated figures are an important factor in sound decision making, given the current focus on creditworthiness and trans-parency as promoted by political/economic and supervisory developments such as Basel II.

Our Ratings product combines the data provided by the three leading agencies:

  • Fitch Ratings
  • Moody‘s Investors Service
  • Standard & Poor‘s.

WM Datenservice provides ratings on 2 mio securities, on a daily basis. The data can be easily integrated into customer processes, as they are transmitted in the usual formats. WM provides long /short term, local/foreign currency, issuer/instrument, and financial strength ratings.

Just as ratings open the capital markets to issuers, they also provide investors with a transparent assessment of issuer creditworthiness and securities quality.

The individual ratings capture the potential risk associated with the payment of interest and the repayment of principal by issuers of capital and money market securities.

The figures provided within the Ratings product contribute to market transparency as well as aiding in yield comparability.
