Moody’s Analytics has won Wholesale credit modelling software of the year at the Risk Technology Awards 2023 thanks to its excellent credit scoring models and solutions that address the diverse requirements of the wholesale market.

One of Moody’s Analytics key offerings is the EDF-X solution, which combines time-tested risk models with one of the largest company databases in the world. The integration of multiple views of credit risks and opportunities into a single web platform and application programming interface (API) enables users to assess credit risks for 450 million rated and unrated companies worldwide with greater speed and accuracy. It provides actionable insights throughout the entire credit lifecycle, including market analysis, new business prospecting, origination and risk rating, reporting, portfolio monitoring and regulatory applications. The flexibility of the EDF-X solution allows users to create custom dashboards and incorporate their own data, automating and streamlining the credit assessment process.

Judges said:

  • “Strong wholesale modelling product.”

Moody’s Analytics also offers its CAP solution, a cloud‑based model lifecycle management platform that allows clients to customise Moody’s Analytics data and modelling frameworks to suit their needs. CAP enables fast deployment of models as APIs, which can be used for risk rating; stress‑testing; environmental, social and governance (ESG) analysis; and current expected credit losses calculation.
