Credit Risk Management Solutions

Rapid Ratings provides comprehensive solutions to help businesses not only manage risks but also enhance opportunities. Rapid Ratings provides clarity of analysis and predictive insights that enable credit professionals to understand the financial viability of their customers, trading counterparties, suppliers and vendors in order to facilitate commercial activity while managing risks and avoiding losses.

Incorporate Company Financial Health in Credit Decisions

Our quantitative Financial Health Rating (FHR®) is calibrated to predict a company’s risk of bankruptcy or default over the next 12 months.  We enable credit teams to extend and price credit, avoid the impact of company deterioration or default, and identify potential opportunities for new or expanded business. Rapid Ratings’ scalable solution adds efficiency to your credit team’s process and workflow.
With global reach, Rapid Ratings provides an FHR on thousands of public and private companies in over 100 countries on behalf of our clients.  Our proprietary technology and methodology is proven to be far more accurate and forward-looking than traditional risk and ratings tools that rely on qualitative judgments, payment history, or market pricing inputs.
