Financial Rating

Your tool for financial negotiations of any kind!

A rating is an absolutely convincing financial instrument for every active entrepreneur.
Companies listed on the stock exchange are classified within the framework of so-called "investment grades" and the probability of default will be published.
For small and medium-sized companies, no publication is required. However, a rating is essential for any form of sustainable and successful financial communication with a thirdpartie.

After the introduction of Basel II - III, banks are forced to make their own internal ratings of their corporate customers. The type, content and focus of the rating are mostly kept nebulous and entrepreneurs are confronted with faits accomplis. The result is no objective analysis and evaluation of the probability of default and the potential of your company.
Whether credit lines, mortgages, loans, investments...In the end you are at the mercy of your house bank.

Since December 2019 (The Basel Framework SCO30) there is good news for you!
With the introduction of the new standardization by the Basel Committee for Banks, your bank can no longer ignore an external rating you bring in.

You mandate us, we issue the rating assessment, you get your financing commitment.
Impartial, transparent, sustainable, professional and cost-efficient - your CFE-Rating!
