The purpose of TICS is to provoke and support due diligence

Our Scorecards are NOT about the rankings per se. All of the issuers / counterparties (with one or two exceptions) are strong banks, in the top percentile (based on criteria we assess) of the banking universe.

Our Scorecards are designed to provoke and support analysis and assessment of the data, including comparison and consideration, leading to better understanding of prospective issuers and counterparties.
