NEW YORK, December 11, 2018 – Moody’s Analytics, a global provider of financial intelligence, has won Best Risk Data Aggregation Platform at the Data Management Awards 2018. Bureau van Dijk, a Moody’s Analytics company, won the award for Best Entity Data Solution.
We earned the prize for Best Risk Data Aggregation Platform for the breadth and strength of Moody’s Analytics risk data aggregation capabilities. Our CreditEdge™ platform provides early warning of credit deterioration of public entities and sovereigns globally, while members of the Moody’s Analytics Data Alliance can access one of the world’s largest collections of private credit risk data. Our RiskFoundation™ platform consolidates data from these and other sources to create a financial and risk datamart from which to view and measure enterprise risk across your portfolio.
“We’re honored to be recognized in the Data Management Awards,” said Dan Russell, Executive Director. “Our customers’ portfolios are increasingly diverse. They need to manage their risk more efficiently, on more entities, across more asset classes. Our award-winning risk data aggregation tools allow them to do that.”
The CreditEdge platform combines the industry-leading Moody’s Analytics EDF™ (Expected Default Frequency) model, a forward-looking probability of default measure, with cutting-edge analytics and more than 250 entity and industry data points. Customers can use the CreditEdge tool to measure the credit risk of public firms and sovereigns with advance early warning. More than 300 institutions (financial firms, asset managers, and regulatory and governmental agencies) across the globe use metrics from the CreditEdge platform.
The Moody’s Analytics Data Alliance is one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive data consortia. Member firms contribute and aggregate their data and collect credit risk benchmarking insight in return, drawn from a global database that includes more than 100 million financial statements representing more than 20 million private firms. The award-winning Data Alliance Portal allows member firms to securely upload data for all its asset classes, including Commercial & Industrial, Project Finance, Asset Finance, and Commercial Real Estate.
The Moody’s Analytics RiskFoundation data platform supplies the infrastructure for an exceptional risk management system. It brings together risk and finance data from different source systems into one common system of record – a “single source of truth” that lets customers examine their enterprise risk holistically. The RiskFoundation platform is a key component of numerous Moody’s Analytics solutions that support compliance with regulatory guidelines.
Bureau van Dijk took the prize for Best Entity Data Solution for the Orbis database.
