S&P Capital IQ announced the launch of a new suite of credit solutions designed to help assess both rated and unrated public and private companies globally with both “point-in-time” and “through-the-cycle” assessments.

These solutions offer a wide range of capabilities to support comprehensive peer analytics, portfolio reviews and counterparty credit assessments as well as assist a wide variety of research, evaluation and management tasks.

Credit solutions on the S&P Capital IQ Platform includes:  A) Market Signals Probability of Default (PD): measures daily early-warning signals of credit deterioration for effective risk monitoring. B) CreditModel Scores: quantitatively-derived credit scores to measure and benchmark credit risk, and determine risk based pricing, limit setting and other credit sensitive strategic decisions. C) Customizable analysis templates, including the credit surveillance template: utilizes an Excel plug-in to bring together company fundamental data and credit indicators from the desktop platform into a single Excel interface.

S&P Capital IQ’s credit solutions have been developed to enhance supply-chain management, provide access to loan origination and transfer pricing data and, through additional credit solutions and other rich content and functionality on the platform, help users evaluate, monitor and mitigate potential credit risks. S&P Capital IQ will continue to add new credit features and workflow solutions to its platform throughout 2013, including a large suite of models built to enable peer comparison, credit scoring and probability of default analysis.
