We can provide end-to-end project implementation, through to specialist project resources and subject matter experts to support and deliver your data and EIM projects.

Today’s environment requires providers of credit to significantly enhance their ability to understand the risks associated with their portfolio. Management is increasingly being asked by stakeholders, regulators and accounting bodies to provide more sophisticated reporting on their exposure to credit risk. These requirements are not always possible with the firms existing infrastructure and technology.

Anchor Point has developed a proprietary model which will utilize our client’s existing counter-party data and rate it to industry-wide acknowledged benchmarks to deliver risk rating analysis for a portfolio of financial instruments and is capable of being generated across currencies and jurisdictions under multiple scenarios.
