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.
