NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- New Constructs (NC), the leading provider of fundamental research on private and public businesses, announced today that it provides Credit Ratings for 2,750+ companies.
New Constructs' Credit Ratings differ from traditional ratings because they are based on proprietary Adjusted Fundamentals, proven superior to traditional unscrubbed data by a paper forthcoming in The Journal of Financial Economics. Accordingly, these new Credit Ratings more accurately measure a firm's leverage, liquidity, interest coverage, and overall creditworthiness.
New Constructs' Credit Ratings also differ from legacy providers' ratings as follows:
More coverage: credit ratings for 2750+ companies.
Daily updates: all ratings reviewed daily based on market events and new financial data.
Unbiased: New Constructs is 100% independent and has no conflicts of interest with research clients and is not paid by companies or bankers for credit or equity ratings.
"Better data drives better models, especially for Credit Ratings. Most investors are unaware of the problems with legacy data and ratings," said David Trainer, CEO of New Constructs. "Our new Credit Ratings reveal the magnitude of the problems and the benefits of fixing them."
All members of New Constructs can access Credit Ratings on the Portfolios, Ratings, or Screeners pages of the website. Details on how to access Credit Ratings are here. Get a free copy of one of our Credit Rating reports here.
