Key Features of Our Services
- Portfolio Specific Analytics: We work closely with each client throughout the life of the engagement to be responsive to their needs. No portfolio is too small; we regularly help clients analyze portfolios of several dozen to several thousand securities.
- Client Service: Client service is of paramount importance in advisory engagements, and is a hallmark of the Moody's Analytics brand. We utilize a variety of professionals - including financial engineers that tackle the most technical request and relationship managers that oversee all aspects of engagements - to ensure best-in-class service is always delivered. We engage senior professionals across Moody's Analytics (Economists and Quantitative Research Analysts) as needed to provide additional insight.
- Comprehensive Reporting: Increased reporting and demand for more transparency are new realities many industry participants are facing. The level of detail and the types and frequency of reporting required by board members may differ substantially from those required by investors or regulators. We appreciate this distinction and help clients determine the reporting that will most benefit their target audience. This may include several different types of analyses depending on the audience, as well as frequent monitoring or dashboard reports that can serve to update the client between milestone deliverables.
- Commentary: Numbers and data only tell part of the story - results without context can lack clarity or, worse, be misleading. Our robust and comprehensive commentary is produced by a team of industry veterans and ensures target audiences fully grasp the results of their implications. Commentary can span from a view on the health of a portfolio as a whole, to in-depth, bottom-up analysis of smaller portfolio subsections or individual securities that require more diligent monitoring. The frequency of commentary can also be customized across the portfolio to maximize its impact and ensure reporting deadlines are met.
