Through this partnership, corporations can receive for each of their clients a credit score from eCredit coupled with a Moody’s KMV EDF™ (Expected Default Frequency) credit measure, giving the corporation better insight into decisions on extending credit to clients. Moody’s KMV EDF credit measures assess probability of default over a specified period of time. The CreditEdge® integration furnishes EDF credit measures for a corporation’s public clients, based on market data. The RiskCalc™ integration provides EDF credit measures for a corporation’s nonpublic clients based on private firm financial statements that exist within eCredit.  For more information, please visit www.ecredit.com.
