Data consortium members can access robust data on private firm credit risk
NEWS | For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, March 13, 2018 – Moody’s Analytics today launched its new Data Alliance Portal. Members of Moody’s Analytics data consortium can use the portal to contribute data to the consortium and collect credit risk benchmarking information in return.
The Moody’s Analytics Data Alliance is one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive data consortia, covering a range of asset classes including commercial and industrial (C&I), commercial real estate (CRE), project and infrastructure finance, and asset finance. Previously known as the Credit Research Database (CRD™) consortium, the Data Alliance is a collaborative effort between Moody’s Analytics and over 90 leading financial institutions globally.
Data Alliance members contribute private firm data such as financial statement, loan, and default metrics. Moody’s Analytics aggregates, anonymizes, and analyzes the data to create industry benchmarking data and analytical tools for consortium members.
“Our mission is to enable financial institutions to manage their credit risk better through improved standards, data quality, transparency, and models,” said Cayetano Gea-Carrasco, Managing Director at Moody’s Analytics. “The Data Alliance Portal provides our members with a seamless data contribution process and robust reporting framework for actionable portfolio insights, all while ensuring a secure data infrastructure.”
Data Alliance members can gain insight by comparing their portfolio risk to that of their peers as well as consortium benchmarks. This insight can augment internal data sourced directly from market participants. The new portal will make consortium data easily accessible to members, enhancing their experience and streamlining their data submission cycles. The portal will also allow members to gain actionable insights on their portfolios and lending strategies.
Additionally, the Data Alliance Portal will provide ongoing data review and monitoring of credit portfolio trends against benchmarks and facilitate quality assurance. Consortium members will be able to run self-service data benchmarking analyses against peers, customize their data experience, and access premium Moody’s Analytics tools such as the RiskBench™ platform. Using the portal will contribute to faster turnaround of benchmarking analytics and the realization of value through the submission cycle.
