NEWS | For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, November 1, 2018 – Moody’s Analytics, a global provider of financial intelligence, has expanded the Data Alliance so that members can now securely upload data for all accepted asset classes and all regions through the Data Alliance Portal (“the Portal”).
It is now more convenient and more secure for Data Alliance members to contribute data and collect credit risk benchmarking insights in return. The Data Alliance’s global database continues to grow and now includes 100 million Commercial & Industrial (C&I) private firm financial statements, $398 billion in Commercial Real Estate (CRE) loan balances covering 354 MSAs, and 63% of all Project Finance loans originated since 1983.
Protecting the confidentiality of member data is paramount. With all data submissions now made exclusively through the Portal, we have strengthened the program’s data security.
“Our members look to the Data Alliance for meaningful insight into their portfolio risk,” said Jean Liu, Senior Director at Moody’s Analytics. “Being able to use the Portal for all their submissions makes getting those insights faster, easier, and more secure.”
Adding to our CRE release earlier this year, Project Finance, Asset Finance, C&I, and Agriculture are among the asset classes for which members can now contribute data and receive insight through the Portal. The Data Alliance also continues to expand globally, including a focus on European CRE and African C&I.
“We’re pleased that Data Alliance members can now contribute data and collect insight for all Portal asset classes,” said Doug Johnson, Director at Moody’s Analytics. “In particular, agricultural lenders will welcome the availability of agriculture lending data and best practices.”
We are also continually looking at other Moody’s Analytics solutions for ways to enhance the Data Alliance. For example, a recent initiative to deepen portfolio analysis builds on our RiskFrontier™ solution and gives Data Alliance members and clients of the RiskFrontier solution the ability to compare their lending profile to peer group benchmarks for economic capital and profitability.
The Data Alliance earned Moody’s Analytics the award for Credit Data Provider of the Year in the 2018 Risk Technology Awards. This win added to the growing list of awards for Moody’s Analytics, including Technology Vendor of the Year in the 2018 Risk Awards.
