  • Credit Assessment Scorecards
  • Loss Given Default Scorecards
  • ESG Enhanced Scorecards

Assess credit risk with confidence and consistency.

Identify potential default risks of private, publicly traded, rated, and unrated companies and government entities—including “Low Default” portfolios lacking the extensive default data needed to construct, calibrate and validate statistical models.

Gain confidence in your decision-making, and the reliability of your internal risk rating systems with 70 Scorecards for all major asset classes, and leading benchmarks, including 140 Industry and Country Risk scores.

Follow a roadmap to consistently assess creditworthiness, focusing on the key risk factors most predictive of default risk, aiding replicability year-to-year, analyst-to-analyst. Outputs are broadly aligned with S&P Global Ratings’ criteria, and supported by default data dating back to 1981.

What is your potential loss position in the current volatile environment?

Refine the assessment of your potential exposure to defaults with our Loss Given Default (LGD) models and scorecards for low default asset classes.

Evaluate potential economic losses on a continuous scale with models that employ S&P Global Ratings’ analytical methodologies, proprietary research, and historical data. By incorporating qualitative and quantitative factors, our models and scorecards focus on sectors where default, and therefore recovery data, is scarce. This allows you to:

  • Meet Basel regulatory requirements by implementing LGD methodologies.
  • Validate and benchmark existing models and methodologies with LGD client data pooling and collection exercises. 
  • Produce facility-specific estimates of LGD in the low default environment with internal ratings-based methodology.

Factor ESG in Credit Risk Analysis

Our ESG Enhanced Credit Assessment Scorecards can help analysts evaluate the credit impact of the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors on the creditworthiness of their portfolios.

Our Scorecards are enhanced to include visualized ESG analysis, which is part of a holistic approach to assessing credit risk.

ESG factors are considered in detail alongside the traditional credit analysis formalized in the Scorecards, enabling you to estimate the impact of ESG factors on credit risk while working through the regular credit assessment process.

The scorecard provides analytical flexibility to assess a variety of ESG factors in terms of their impact on relevant credit risk factors – in a bottom-up analytical process.

This provides valuable information on individual credit risk aspects’ sensitivity to ESG factors which may be used for stress-testing, financial projections, and advanced risk appraisal.
