Lodz is First City to Receive a Resistance-to-Shocks Rating

Singapore, December 7-th, 2017. The City of Lodz, Poland, has received a Resistance to Shocks Rating, which measures the capacity to absorb sudden destabilizing events. The result is a high rating of 86%, corresponding to a four-star rating on a scale from one to five stars. In addition, the rating provides a ranking of all parameters used in the analysis, indicating which ones, and in what measure, constitute sources of resilience or fragility.

"This is the first time that a systemic Resistance to Shocks Rating has been computed for a city. We are thankful to the authorities of Lodz for allowing us to perform this pioneering analysis", said Dr. J. Marczyk, the Chairman of Universal Ratings. "Cities are large and highly complex systems of infrastructures and processes which possess their own specific dynamics and which interact with a rapidly changing society and economy. Such interactions can be non-intuitive and difficult to grasp. However, it is important for the authorities to comprehend the said dynamics, in order to better govern the city and to plan its development on more systemic and scientific grounds",  he concluded.

The data which has been used to compute the systemic Resistance to Shocks (RtS) rating of the city spanned the following dimensions:

  • Labor market 
  • Construction and Real Estate 
  • Budget 
  • Central Statistics Office, GUS

The data covers the period 2002-2006 for a total of 364 parameters. Collaboration is continuing to extend the scope of the analysis, embracing such dimensions as energy and transportation.

Łódź is a vibrant city in central Poland, known as a former textile-manufacturing hub. It has over 750 000 inhabitants, making it Poland's third largest city. For more information see here.

Universal Rating Launches Portfolio Rating Robot

Singapore, 4-th July, 2017. Universal Ratings launches a Portfolio Rating Robot which allows users to obtain a Resistance to Shocks (RtS) rating of their portfolios. The tool, in its present version, is available at no cost.

"High portfolio complexity and low Resistance to Shocks means that it is not easy to understand, to forecast and, most importantly, to understand the dynamics of a portfolio. For this reason, it is useful to know the complexity breakdown of a portfolio and to pinpoint its components that influence its Resistance to Shocks", said Dr. J. Marczyk, the Founder and Executive Chairman of Universal Ratings. "The tool may be very easily connected to any data source, such as Bloomberg or Thomson Reuters and enables to measure the complexity and Resistance to Shocks of user-defined portfolios" he added. "An RtS rating is a useful piece of information in addition to the classical buy/sell advice provided to traders, especially in a turbulent and complex economy" he concluded.

The tool is available at no charge and may be accessed at http://www.assetdynex.com/

More information is available on Universal Rating's website.

Universal Ratings Launches online Tool for Complexity Rating of Securities

Singapore, 21-st April, 2017. Universal Ratings launches an online tool which allows users to obtain a complexity rating of over five thousand publicly traded securities. Universal Ratings believes that a complexity rating of traded securities is a new, natural and necessary indicator which reflects, in a unique manner, the key characteristic of our times - complexity.

"Highly complex price dynamics means that it is not easy to understand, to forecast and, most importantly, that it can deliver surprises. For this reason, it is useful to know how complex are the components of an investment portfolio", said Dr. J. Marczyk, the Founder and Executive Chairman of Universal Ratings. "The tool may be very easily connected to any data source, such as Bloomberg or Thomson Reuters and enables to measure the complexity of user-defined portfolios" he added. "A complexity rating is a useful piece of information in addition to the classical buy/sell advice provided to traders, especially in a turbulent and complex economy" he concluded.

The tool is available at no charge and may be accessed at http://www.assetdynex.com/

Universal Ratings Launches Novel B2B Rating System

Singapore, 12-th June 2016. Universal Ratings launches a novel Rating System. Aimed at global and institutional investors, the system is an objective, independent and transparent rating platform.

Engineered specifically for a turbulent and complex economy, the system rates the Resistance to Shocks (RtS) of a company, an investment portfolio or generic financial products. An RtS rating quantifies the ability to absorb shocks, contagion and destabilising events and is paramount towards sustainability and wealth conservation.

Universal Ratings offers RtS ratings for:

  • Stocks, ETFs, funds, bonds, futures, options, etc.
  • Portfolios
  • Stock markets, systems of markets, indices
  • Single corporations
  • Systems of corporations
  • National economies, macro-regions
  • The global financial system

"Resistance to shocks is the foundation of sustainability. Our ratings have the objective of aiding investors in incorporating a science-based approach to sustainability, asset allocation, portfolio design and strategic decision-making" said Dr. Marczyk, Executive Chairman of Universal Ratings. "The key feature of our rating system is that it is objective. We have eliminated the so-called expert opinion from our ratings” he added. “Transparency is guaranteed by the fact that our rating engine may be accessed by anyone as a B2B service.” he concluded.

The rating system is delivered in as B2B context, whereby clients submit their data to UR's server via a web-service. The service is based on SOAP specifications (Simple Object Access Protocol) and communicates via the http protocol. A near real-time solution is also offered whereby the rating engine is licensed and runs directly on the client's servers.
