The performance of LSEG StarMine Credit Risk Models

We present an update on the performance of StarMine’s suite of credit risk models

The StarMine Credit Risk Models significantly outperform the Altman Z-Score in predicting the probability of default or bankruptcy globally within one year.

StarMine’s suite of credit risk models is a valuable tool for financial professionals in the assessment of credit and counterparty risk; for fixed income security selection and valuation; and for equity selection and risk management. The suite includes:

  • StarMine Structural Credit Risk Model
  • StarMine SmartRatios Credit Risk Model
  • StarMine Text Mining Credit Risk Model
  • StarMine Combined Credit Risk Model
Given the uncertainty in today's markets, we're pleased to find that the StarMine corporate credit models continue to be highly predictive and responsive tools to assess the health of companies and their risk of default.
