Cognitive Credit, an enterprise software company focused on the global corporate credit market, has launched its data-driven analytics application custom-designed for institutional credit investors. Corporate credit is one of the world’s largest investment markets, at over USD10 trillion, yet has seen limited technological innovation over the past decade compared to other asset classes.
Cognitive Credit offers institutional investors a modern and intuitive web-based application that delivers the most accurate fundamental data in the market and a suite of advanced features that enable more insightful and efficient analysis.
All fundamental data in the application is generated by Cognitive Credit’s proprietary machine reading technology. Web-hosted financial spreadsheet models provide years of annual and interim financial data, supplemented with derived credit metrics, forecasting functionality, data visualisation tools, text search capabilities, and auto-generated credit memos. Data is always a single click away from its source, ensuring that it is of the highest integrity and easily auditable.
By simplifying the time-consuming and expensive process of data management, credit investors can now prioritise more advanced analysis and respond to new information more quickly. Other features in the application support improved communication and collaboration across the entire investment team, and mobile accessibility means clients are now never separated from their most important information.
Developed by technology and finance experts and backed by a group of leading industry executives
To drive innovation in the industry, Cognitive Credit assembled its team two years ago by bringing together finance experts with backgrounds in accounting, market analysis, and asset management and technology experts coming from the fields of machine learning, document analysis, high frequency electronic markets, and cloud computing.
Robert Slater, CEO and Founder of Cognitive Credit said, “We are thrilled to launch our application to the institutional market today. Corporate credit investors have long been frustrated by the lack of technological innovation in their asset class. Over the years I’ve had countless conversations with credit professionals disappointed by poorly designed tools and frustrated with the inefficiency of manual, repetitive processes in their industry.
Cognitive Credit was established to empower credit investors to be more insightful and efficient through advanced technology and thoughtful product design. In developing this application, our team has received ongoing feedback from a wide range of market participants, and this tremendous support has resulted in a product that we see as a game changer for global credit investors.”
