Euler Hermes Rating GmbH » OUR STRATEGY

OUR STRATEGY

Euler Hermes Rating is committed to credible, objective and reliable ratings. We place the quality of our rating analyses at the core of all our activities

THE FOUR OBJECTIVES OF OUR STRATEGY

  • To be the preferred rating partner for upper mid-size companies
  • To enhance our good reputation with investors in Europe
  • To be the quality leader in analyses and processes
  • To boost human capital

TO BE THE PREFERRED RATING PARTNER FOR UPPER MID-SIZE COMPANIES

We particularly address companies which wish to raise a greater volume of finance in the capital markets in the future and have previously not been rated or whose current rating does not sufficiently factor in the specific nature of their business. The Euler Hermes Group has been analysing the creditworthiness of companies from a wide range of different sectors all around the world for more than 100 years. We understand the specific nature of individual business models and describe this in our rating reports in a readily understandable and objective manner. Our goal is to be the preferred rating agency for upper mid-size companies in Europe.

TO ENHANCE OUR GOOD REPUTATION WITH INVESTORS IN EUROPE

The name “Euler Hermes” is synonymous with quality. In 2010, we were the first rating agency to be accredited by the European financial supervisor and are able to provide proof of the high reliability of our ratings over the last few years. We are continuously enhancing our rating methods and always put ourselves in the creditor’s shoes. Thanks to the validity of our ratings, we have been able to consistently raise their acceptance by investors. Looking forward, we plan to resolutely continue on this course. Our goal is to be recommended by investors as the rating agency of their choice.

TO BE THE QUALITY LEADER IN ANALYSES AND PROCESSES

Ever since our incorporation, we have been committed to ensuring the highest standards of quality. Not least of all, we owe this to our strong name. Moving forward, we want to continue setting standards with our high level of quality. We tap group synergies arising from our strong brand, our knowledge lead and group-wide best practices. At the same time, we preserve our own identity to act independently, objectively and impartially.

TO BOOST HUMAN CAPITAL

The quality of our ratings hinges materially on the quality of our staff. As employees of an Europe-wide acknowledged rating agency they have a particular responsibility. Our employees are our most valuable assets. We are aware of the importance of our staff and offer them the possibility of achieving a viable work-life balance. Our goal is to gain the best employees and analysts and to retain them in the long term.
