Professional credit assessment

As an independent European rating agency, we offer our clients a portfolio of services encompassing rating, risk analysis, scoring and benchmarking. Our credit assessments focus on banks, building societies and leasing companies.



And why?

Life is change and we are changing ourselves along with it.

Of course, this is not an objective in itself, but an expression of our association-wide commitment to continue to support risk management for deposit protection and financial market stability with modern approaches in the sense of an early warning system.

Current topics such as crypto assets, ESG or global risks, require new perspectives and expanded assessment approaches.

We are facing up to these challenges and are demonstrating this also in our external appearance.

Stay tuned!
