Credit Risk Management

Reduce bad debt, improve cash flow and safeguard against risk.

To manage credit effectively it helps to have the necessary tools to help you stay proactive, evaluating & monitoring potential clients to see if their circumstances improve, as well as existing clients, to ensure their credit limit is still accurate.  Besides protecting against bad debt, you also need to improve cash flow and encourage growth, ensuring the right amount of credit is given to the right clients.

The H-Score® is derived from a company’s published financial results and quantifies how closely the accounts resemble those of companies which subsequently failed.

The PoD® is the probability that a Distress Event will occur within either 1 year (1 year PoD) or 3 years (3 year PoD).

The Risk Rating places a company into one of ten risk categories. Level 1 indicates the lowest risk, level 10 the highest.

The Credit Limit is a measure derived by Company Watch and is calculated giving consideration to the company’s size, level of trading activity, the degree to which it is already exposed in the short term to its creditors, its ability to repay them and its working capital position.
