A European perspective in a global market

Scope Ratings' methodology reflects a truly European approach to assessing underlying rating drivers. Compared to the larger credit rating agencies, we do not try to shoehorn regional differences into a global product. We are contributing to a greater diversity of opinions among rating agencies in today's capital markets to help investors and issuers make the best investment decisions possible.

Obtain the essential insights needed to support you in your credit risk assessments. With Credit Sphere, what you see is what you get. Our pricing structure is fair and predictable. We do not charge for ratings already paid for by the issuer. We make it easier for clients to use our credit ratings across their organisation and for any purpose.
