Guided by RAM’s methodologies, publicly available information and independent research, CreditSCAN consolidate industry, business and financial risks into risk grades that are already industry standard. At a glance, users will also be able to view peer benchmarking and forecast scenarios of companies’ future performance.
Thirdly, LECA™ Ratings is a bespoke rating service for licensed entities in the Labuan International Business and Financial Centre (IBFC). Developed in consultation with Labuan FSA, Labuan IBFC Inc and Labuan industry association groups, LECA™ enhances the transparency and resilience of Labuan IBFC as a premier mid-shore jurisdiction in Asia.
“The launch of RAM Analytics is timely as digitalisation and data analytics are driving the way we consume information and do business. We want to be at the forefront of this pivotal transition – to not only help users better manage their risk, but also drive data democratisation in the digital age,” said Chris Lee, RAM’s Group Chief Executive Officer.
“RAM Analytics is powered by RAM’s proprietary tools and expertise in research, credit and ESG. The platform is thoughtfully designed so that anyone can quickly access information they need as well as purview our analytical insights.
