Until today, rating has not been a science. In fact, rating agencies themselves claim that ratings are opinions. When all calculations are done, it is always down to the subjective judgement of an expert. Our ratings are science, not opinions. Numbers, not sensations. Our ratings are fully automatic. And fast.

In a turbulent economy, resistance to shocks is the new key reflection of the sustainability of a corporation or an investment portfolio.  In fact our ratings go beyond the concept of Probability of Default (PoD) - we measure the so-called shock-worthiness: the ability to absorb and withstand shocks and volatility. Basically, UR computes a Resistance to Shocks Rating (RtS) Rating.

Since the global economy changes quickly, our rating goes beyond the concept of a 'static rating', computed, say, on an annual basis. We offer dynamic ratings which track the evolution of markets. Since in a turbulent and shock-dominated economy a static rating becomes obsolete very quickly, we focus on identifying rating gradients and trends, which reflect the involved and complex dynamics of the global financial system.

Universal Ratings also offers innovative ratings of systemic risks. In fact, we rate systems of thousands of stocks, portfolios, funds, corporations, banks. We use supercomputers to take the concept of systemic risk rating to a totally new level, providing truly holistic and strategic information to the global investor.

Universal Ratings provides an independent, transparent and objective rating system which has been engineered specifically for a complex economy. Our goal is to help global and institutional investors seek sustainability and preserve wealth in a highly turbulent and uncertain context. Science, not opinions.
