Our Issuer & Counterparty Scorecards: developed for internal use
As an independent plan manager, we are able to select issuers and counterparties without bias. We therefore seek to identify and deal with strong issuers and counterparties.
- The FT Banker Database identifies approximately 3,400 banks globally. As a first step, we deal predominantly with banking groups that are defined for regulatory purposes as ‘Global Systemically Important Banks’ (G-SIBs) and / or, as a minimum, ‘Domestic Systemically Important Banks (D-SIBs).
- As a second step, we have developed a suite of proprietary Scorecards, which compile multiple factors and use a robust methodology, including a score system, to help us more objectively analyse, assess, compare, consider and understand prospective issuers and counterparties.
