Capital Intelligence Ratings Ltd has been providing credit analysis and ratings since 1982, and now rates over 300 Banks, Corporates and Financial Instruments (Bonds & Sukuk) in 39 countries. A specialist in emerging markets, CI Ratings geographical coverage includes the Middle East, the wider Mediterranean region, Central and Eastern Europe, South Asia, South-East Asia, the Far East, and North and South Africa.
Having established a strong reputation in the area of bank analysis, CI's range of services has expanded over time to include corporate credit ratings and the rating of bonds and other financial obligations. CI also provides analysis and rating services for Islamic institutions, including non-bank financial institutions. In addition, to meet the requirements of capital market participants in countries with low or sub-investment grade sovereign ratings, CI has adopted National Ratings, which provide country-specific rather than internationally comparable credit assessments.
The credibility of CI's rating process and credit opinions is underpinned by the principles of independence, objectivity and analytical consistency. CI is a privately owned agency with no financial institutions or corporations among its shareholders. Rating procedures are documented and strictly followed and credit analysis is based on detailed, sector-specific (eg, bank or corporate) methodologies. Rating decisions are made not by one analyst but by a committee of analysts.
CI offers risk managers timely, impartial and forward looking analysis of counterparty credit risk ratings and credit trends. CI's clients and subscribers include the world's leading commercial and investment banks, investors, central banks and regulators, international financial institutions, local banks and market participants, Islamic financial institutions, export credit agencies and government agencies.
The Company's head office is in Limassol, Cyprus with additional analysts based in Hong Kong and New Delhi, India.
