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.
Stock markets, systems of markets, indices
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 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.
Examples of Resistance to Shocks Ratings available in Bloomberg Terminals are illustrated below by typing <NH RTS> or via the Bloomberg Mobile App.
