External Rating Models

Powerful scorecards and rating models to perform risk assessments across your C&I lending portfolio

Identifying and managing default risks in a credit portfolio requires sophisticated analytical tools and consistent frameworks for risk analysis. Internal risk rating systems are often costly to develop and maintain. Leveraging external credit assessment scorecards helps ensuring a consistent, standardized approach to credit analysis, improves the evaluation of credit risks, and supports the fulfillment of regulatory requirements.

ACTICO provides credit and risk management professionals access to a sophisticated and comprehensive set of pre-configured scorecards for credit risk assessment. The scorecards can be used standalone or in combination with an organization’s internal risk rating methodologies. This consistent framework for analysis offers shorter delivery times, lower costs, and improved risk assessment quality.

Integration Scenarios

We have two flexible integration scenarios: Either use an out-of-the-box, comprehensive, web-based solution or invoke the Scorecards from existing workflows and systems.

Web-based risk assessment platform

The Scorecards are integrated with a flexible, secure, cloud-based web-application. The workflow enabled solution covers the end-to-end risk assessment process including data input of qualitative and quantitative risk factors, analyst adjustments and multi-stage, role-based approval processes.

API-based integration

All Scorecards are exposed via powerful standard APIs (Web Services). This approach is ideally suited for clients that want to embed the Scorecard logic within existing internal or third-party systems.
