Fitch Solutions today announced a number of powerful enhancements to its Counterparty Risk Solutions, each designed to help risk professionals make faster and more insightful decisions. The Counterparty Risk Solution now includes a curated news monitoring service, Country Risk Data from BMI Research, and Bank Rankings – all delivered through the Fitch Connect platform.

Fitch Connect News: This innovative offering uses machine learning and text mining technologies to gauge news sentiment on user-defined portfolio of banks, curated from thousands of global sources. This unique service applies a ‘negativity algorithm’ against entity and portfolio content, learning to deliver increasingly relevant content based on user behavior and delivered within his or her credit risk workflow.

Country Risk Data: This qualitative view of BMI Research’s macroeconomic data, forecasts and risk indices features macroeconomic and political risk analysis for 163 countries globally, and covering 99.9% of global GDP. BMI’s macroeconomic and political risk content is combined with Fitch’s proprietary content and relevant financial data.

Bank Rankings: Leveraging its extensive Fundamental Financial Data, Fitch Solutions has developed a Bank Ranking methodology to offer insight into banks’ positioning on a global and country basis. Bank Rankings provide a clear indication of a bank’s relative standing compared to peers, both current and historic. Bank Rankings are available based on Total Assets, Risk Weighted Assets, Tier 1 Capital and Operating Profit.

Brian Filanowski, Global Head of Product, Fitch Solutions, commented: “By listening to our users, we continue to offer differentiated solutions targeted at helping relieve some of the pain-points in their workflow. The release of the curated news monitoring service is a great example of a differentiated solution.
