Credit reports and ratings

Historically credit ratings have been used to measure a financial institution's capacity to meet its financial commitments.

In recent years Credit Default Swap (‘CDS’) rates have become an additional indicator of the financial strength of a company to meet its obligations and are now often utilised alongside the ratings.

We supply our advisers and investors with an appropriate level of information regarding both CDS updates and up-to-date credit ratings from credit rating agencies, including Standard & Poor's, Moody's and Fitch.

Detailed information on weekly CDS updates and also Quarterly Reporting on Investment Banks is included in this section. There is also the opportunity to subscribe to a weekly CDS update.
