    Client Profile

    Momentum Metropolitan Holdings (MMH) is a South-African based financial services group with a market capitalization of $1.47 billion. The group remains one of the largest insurers and integrated financial services company in South Africa. 


    MMH required a robust risk management solution for credit portfolio management. The specific needs were:

    1) Transitioning to a cloud-based solution to replace on-premises solution
    2) Incorporating credit risk limit modeling capabilities
    3) Providing a friendly interface for business users to enhance analytical capabilities


    As a result, Momentum Metropolitan chose PortfolioStudio™, Moody's Analytics' cloud-based solution that combines portfolio analytics and decision enabling tools to effectively identify, measure, and manage risk. This decision was driven by the need for an agile and scalable platform, enhanced data insights, and seamless credit risk limit modeling within the tool. The intuitive interface and cloud-based infrastructure of PortfolioStudio™ also aligned perfectly with Momentum Metropolitan's objectives.
