Our Background

Back in 2015 the book ‘Credit Risk Management – Code of Best Practice’ was published, originally in German. Because of positive feedback It was launged in English two years later. Importantly the book describes how to setup a state of the art credit management in a company. It includes a standard credit policy and procedures, standard agreements, key performance indicators, credit risk scoring models, reporting instruments, sources of information, and definitions.

The book and content has since become the standard teaching reference of the Association of Credit Management Switzerland. In the meantime the book is recognized as one of the “must read” publications in this global field. Elements of the books sections, and further research, are the foundation of the Emerald Rating methodology.

Credit Risk Management - Code of Best Practice

 

The book describes a credit risk scoring model in particular, which is the fundamental basis for the scoring model used by Emerald Rating. The idea now from an efficiency gain perspective is to let the business partner who is requesting a credit limit for being served by its supplier or receiving money from a lender, entering it’s financial information into the scoring model without entering the name and address of the company.

The scoring output together with the financial statement information is then given to the supplier’s/ lender’s credit decision maker for review of correctness and finally making the credit decision.
