Credit scoring, made for SMEs. Gain access to our proprietary metrics to understand your risk exposure in the fastest, simplest form.
SME Z-Score and Bond Rating Equivalent
Cut through the complexity of risk reporting with a single, comprehensive metric based on all 3 modules of our risk engine. Each business receives a risk rating from 0 to 1,000 alongside industry and geography benchmarks, so you know exactly how your risk profile stacks up. Communicate risk using a scale your investors already understand. Our BRE translates the SME Z-Score into the S&P’s bond rating scale based on a sample of 100,000+ global corporate bonds issued in the last 4 decades.
Probability of Default and Loss Given Default
Generate a reliable Probability of Default for your reporting and financial modelling. We calculate a 1-year PD by transforming the SME Z-Score using exponential formulas, calibrated by country and industry. Understand exactly how much is at stake in a worst-case scenario. We derive an unsecured LGD for each company using balance sheet ratios and macroeconomic benchmarks in similar industries and countries.

Risk models

SMEs are a special breed that can’t be assessed using consumer or corporate tools. We’ve developed an archive of models tailored to companies from £500k to £500mn in annual turnover.
Industry and country-specific
One size doesn’t fit all for credit risk. Our archive of 76 risk models are individually calibrated by sector and geography using an SME dataset covering 20+ years. We build benchmarks directly into the platform to give you the precise context you need to make decisions confidently.
Latest and greatest
We’ve built 76 risk models so far, but we’re not stopping there. We’re constantly sourcing new data from new geographies to widen our coverage. Each model gets routinely refreshed with the latest data, so your insights are always fresh without needing to invest in model maintenance.

Bespoke builds
Need to update your in-house models or cover a new niche? We’ll collaborate with your team to modify, codify, and scale risk models that capture your unique risk profile and target market. Our experts are at your disposal to combine our expertise with your experience.
Academic expertise
Our risk models are based on over 5 decades of academic research pioneered by our founder – the godfather of credit risk – Professor Ed Altman. The SME Z-Score is trained using over millions of data points from 20+ years of real-world experience.

Data sources

Company accounts are just the beginning. We supplement core financials with unstructured, qualitative, and macroeconomic data so you have full access to all the information that matters.
Financial statements, without the hassle. Access the freshest filings and calculate a full suite of financial ratios at the click of a button, cleaned and synthesised for easy use.
Money matters, but context is king. We pull corporate governance, legal events, press coverage, and social media data to build a rich company portrait beyond the numbers.
No business is an island. Our research shows that macroeconomic variables like defaults, GDP growth, inflation, unemployment and interest rates all have material implications for risk. We built them into our platform so you never miss the big picture.

Innovative data sourcing
We combine financial history with the widest range of structured and unstructured data. Our API and portal provide automated access through a single point of entry, so your data is always one click away.
Artificial intelligence
AI is in our DNA. From data extraction to advanced analytics, each layer of our platform leverages artificial intelligence to improve speed and predictive accuracy. Unstructured data, machine learning, and bespoke modelling are all working on your behalf.
Non-public data
Our models aren’t limited by our data sources, so you can leverage any additional information you have at your disposal. Upload any non-public data you have, and we’ll run it through our models to assess the impact it has on your risk exposure.
