Euromoney Bank Risk methodology

Post-global financial crisis, understanding the financial performance of banks remains difficult for investors. Due to the complex nature of bank reporting, both equity and credit analysts are extremely influential in how banks are viewed by investors. Euromoney Bank Risk has therefore been created to capture, interrogate and distil the opinions of influential analysts. By aggregating the granular qualitative opinions of analysts, we are able to track various indicators.
