Our Approach

      Scope’s general and asset-class-specific methodologies set out the principles that Scope applies for rating and monitoring all types of structured-finance instruments, generally issued through bankruptcy-remote special purpose vehicles and secured by one or more cash-flow generating assets.

      We take the context of the originator and the relevant jurisdiction into account. We analyse securitisations from a European perspective, applying our deep knowledge of local markets.

      We do not mechanistically limit the maximum achievable rating of a securitisation because of the credit quality of the country of the issuer or the securitised assets.

      We place high value on transparency in our rating reports, highlighting key rating drivers and underlying assumptions in a clear and concise manner to the benefit of investors and arrangers.

      Flexibility is also assured as we can provide arrangers with standard data templates relevant for securitisation analysis. We can also adapt and use third-party templates. Scope is equally committed to excellence in ratings delivery, working to speedy and bespoke timelines to suit client needs
