Regulatory Compliance

As an independent and recognised Swiss credit rating agency, all our activities are consistently and permanently oriented towards nationally and internationally relevant compliance standards. These explicitly include the regulatory criteria according to FINMA Circular 2012/1 on Credit Rating Agencies.

As part of our disclosure obligations, we publish the operational implementation of the various regulatory requirements:

For a credit rating agency, the continuous review and development of the rating models it uses is of central importance. The suitability of a rating model for rating purposes is measured both by its consistency with current findings in the economic literature and by the results of statistical model validation. We use a range of test procedures to validate the forecasting quality, calibration quality, and discriminatory power of our rating models.
