NEW YORK, July 14, 2020 ... Oliver Wyman and S&P Global Market Intelligence announced today a collaboration to create a climate-linked credit analytics model suite. This breakthrough risk and scenario analysis capability will provide credit risk assessments of companies under a range of climate scenarios.

"Oliver Wyman's deep expertise in assessing climate risk scenarios and overall risk management complements S&P Global Market Intelligence's comprehensive differentiated data and credit risk analytics offerings," said Whit McGraw, Managing Director and Global Head of Credit Risk Solutions at S&P Global Market Intelligence. "These intuitive models will provide an in-depth view of the drivers that will impact credit risk, giving our clients a new layer of climate-related assessment tools that help them form a holistic approach to assess credit risk."
"S&P Global has a wealth of strategic assets that provide essential intelligence to key decision makers. We are excited to combine their unique databases and analytics with our counterparty level, driver-based methodologies," said Ilya Khaykin, Partner and Head of Climate Risk for the Americas at Oliver Wyman.
The multi-sector climate-linked credit analytics models will become available on a rolling basis throughout 2020 and 2021.
