FHR Methodology and Calculation

Other financial risk providers use broad estimations and qualitative assessments, like trade payment data, which produce unreliable and deceptive risk insights. The RapidRatings methodology is based on actual financial statements, resulting in fewer false alarms and more accurate risk indicators. By combining near- and medium-term resilience and efficiency indicators, we produce the industry’s most reliable rating for financial health.
Core Health Score
The CHS measures the medium-term viability of a company, using 62 ratios.
Resilience Indicators
We then dynamically overlay resilience ratios, which focus on short-term default risk.
The resulting FHR measures a company's near-term risk with over 90% accuracy.

Unmatched accuracy and predictive power. The industry standard for financial health.
