Overview

The rating of banks and other financial institutions accounts for a significant portion of GCR’s business, as GCR rates more banks and other financial institutions in Africa than any other rating agency. GCR’s expertise in this market is widely recognised and highly regarded by investors, as we have an unparalleled track record for rating accuracy in Africa. GCR’s methodology for rating banks and other financial institutions covers commercial banks, merchant banks, building societies, discount houses, microfinance institutions, finance and leasing companies and other similar financial institutions. In addition, a methodology for according “quality” ratings (which differ from credit ratings) to funds and asset managers, is also presented.
