Get prepared before any rating process starts


Is it a good idea to go unprepared for an exam? Whether university examinations, applicant selection, pitches of start-ups, initial public offerings or bond issues – in each one, good preparation pays off. Good preparation is not only for the applicant who wants to get a job, loan or capital or other resources, but also the organization that has to make the assessment. Random results are avoided and misunderstandings are eliminated.

RATING EVIDENCE supports ownership positions in companies involved in rating activities, working with the boards and management teams of those institutions to maintain sustainable growth and increase their long-term competitiveness, thereby creating real value for all stakeholders. RATING EVIDENCE generally looks for sound business models in the rating industry that either promise to maintain clear market leadership positions or are overlooked, misunderstood, or in its early stages. It works in a hands-on and constructive manner to realize value-enhancement potential in operations, institutional strategy, organizational structure, corporate governance, focused marketing and professional communication. Rating advisory, rating agency, rating technology and rating repair are tagging our interests. Contact us if you are working on any of these or related topics.

Our vision is to have assets and the reputation of counterparties rated by easily understandable, clear and objective classifications on rating scales.

What RATING EVIDENCE stands for: It is our aspiration to create value by devising, attaining and preserving the sustainable benefits of calibrated rating scales. The mission is to help individuals and organizations to make better informed investment and finance decisions by evidence-based ratings.
