Our Risk Assessment
Process incorporates these important elements:
As a foundation to our research process, we assess
each bond's fundamental ability and likelihood
of repayment using conventional and unique methods
of analyses. We weigh heavily on appraising a
credit's leverage and cash flow as well its economic
basis for growing its revenue and net income coverage.
We seek to achieve consistent, above average benchmark
performance through our inspection and recognition
of tangible and intangible changes in credit direction
or momentum. Analysts make a scoring judgment
relative to their confidence in the credit direction
of individual credits and industries relative
to short and long term horizon.
on our view of a credit's fundamental quality and
credit momentum, we assess historical and current
pricing to determine whether the bonds fit our
criteria for performance.
