Increasingly the financial performance by companies is being evaluated by external market players such as rating agencies, banks, credit insurers, etc. Their rating processes follow their own rules, regulations and systems which are often considered by corporates and sub-sovereigns to be a “black box”.
Therefore it becomes ever more important to present a company’s business model as well as its creditworthiness in a way to be clearly understood by those external market players, in order to achieve a maximum positive score in their evaluations.
Through its detailed know-how of a company’s needs and expectations as well as the internal processes and external regulations governing such evaluations Independent Capital bridges the gap between both parties and ensures that all information presented is clearly understood to the benefit of its clients.
Independent Capital advises its clients in all aspects of the rating process, from bank ratings to company ratings (“issuer-rating”) as well as financial instrument ratings (“issue-rating”) by one or more international rating agencies. Subsequently the firm supports the client over time at its regular annual reviews. Also already existing ratings can be improved by closely cooperating with all external market players involved.
