We capture and treat private company information for better decision making and increased efficiency, so we’re ideally suited to help corporate credit professionals. 

Orbis, our global company database, has information on over 280 million companies and offers:

  • Standardised financials so you can assess companies globally
  • Financial strength metrics using a range of models and including a qualitative score for when detailed financials aren’t available 
  • Projected financials
  • Extensive corporate structure so you can assess the complete group – or take the financial stability of the parent into account 

Credit Catalyst is a platform where you can combine information from Orbis with your own knowledge of your customers and get dashboard views of your portfolio.

How we help

 We’re here to help you work more efficiently

  • Optimise your information resources by blending your experience of your counterparties with our company information
  • Benefit from data that’s centralised, stored in the cloud and easily accessible
  • View information in dashboards that illustrate complex data in simple charts and graphs to give you an immediate understanding
  • Look at your portfolio, or individual counterparties, from different perspectives with our range of ‘views’
  • Create tailored scorecards to automatically rate companies - choose how to weight different elements, set conditional parameters and include both quantitative and qualitative data to help you score and set credit limits
  • Tailor your own alerts to monitor specific changes and trigger workflow actions
  • Reduce data input to a minimum and cut out human error

We help you monitor your portfolio

Using Credit Catalyst you can see your portfolio in tailored dashboards so your risk landscape is easy to understand. You can also set tailored alerts to monitor your data for changes – such as new financial data available, or a change to one of our financial strength scores. And these alerts can trigger actions or reviews.

We improve accuracy

The information on Orbis comes from more than 160 partners and we treat and append this data to enrich it.

We also run lots of quality checks and tests. Our background is in information consultancy so data really is in our DNA. We are passionate about data quality and rigour. So, you can be confident that we’re doing all we can to provide you with the best data source – and we also help you reduce human error by automating and centralising your data in our platform – there’s no need for manual data and processes. 

We help you automate your processes including:

  • Confirming a company’s legal identity 
  • Assessing their financial risk
  • Setting credit limits and payment terms

We help you spot risk quickly

Our dashboards give you an instant view of your portfolio, highlighting where your risk is. So you can focus your resources appropriately.

Can you help me...

Analyse private companies?

We have the most comprehensive information on private companies available. In many countries, financials for private companies are readily available. For other countries, we can usually provide financial summaries or other information to help you confirm a company exists.

We complement financial data with other information that can help you assess credit risk. This includes a qualitative score that evaluates companies on non-financial data and peer performance. We also provide ownership information so you can assess the holding company.

We have very detailed financial data for companies across the globe, and reports for over 280 million. We’re completely transparent about our coverage and you can trial our data to check it out for yourself.

Use my own internal models to analyse companies?

Credit Catalyst allows you to create your own models so your assessment is completely determined by you, your risk appetite and internal definitions.

Integrate information from Bureau van Dijk into my own systems?

Credit Catalyst makes it simple to blend your data with ours. You can also take data directly from Orbis into your in-house systems using web services. We have pre-existing Apps for many credit systems already. You can also take the analysis from Credit Catalyst into your own systems, and use your own Excel templates via our Excel Add-In.

Contact us to find out more or visit the developers’ tools area of our site.

Access probability of default?

Our financial strength models include probability of default and a confidence level.

Analyse small companies?

Depending on the filing requirements for a country we can have financial data even for small companies. Our range of complementary data will also help you assess a company – as will our qualitative score that uses non-financial and peer data to score a company. We recommend a free trial so you can test the data for yourselves.

Analyse banks?

We have a whole range of data and software solutions for bank credit analysis. Orbis Bank Focus is a bank data tool, we have a specific Credit Catalyst for Banks and we also have customised analysis via our Fact Framework. If this is your area of interest, you ‘ve come to the right place.
