Why have we changed our ratings & limits?

With access to more detailed information and historical trend data than ever before we are continuously investing in and enhancing our credit risk methology. This means that we can adapt our risk analysis models to consider significant predictive factors in even more detail.

We've adapted our model to factor in even more detailed information and analysis to provide you with an even clearer picture of a business's performance, putting greater emphasis on a company’s financials, payment data, key risk information and trend analysis.

How will this affect you?

Combining additional credit risk factors with what we already know means that we can continue to provide you with the most predictive, credible and reliable business credit insights available.



Recommended credit limits may increase

Depending on existing and historic financial performance, payment behaviour and key credit risk data your clients and suppliers credit rating & limit may increase.
