Use of credit rating to facilitate credit transactions in both private and public sectors has remained low, and misunderstood, amidst claims of bias against African Sovereign borrowers. Low sovereign ratings result in low corporate ratings.
The Africa Ratings Summit explores the purposes of, and value adding use, of credit ratings. It brings together practitioners, regulators, borrowers and credit providers in one professional platform for the first time.
This first summit will explore:
Adoption of Risk Based Pricing
Working with Regulators to get licensees [banks, insurance companies, listed companies, bond issuers] rated so that investors and other players can have a way of pricing their risk.
Speed up Issuing and Investment Processes
As a tool that Market Regulators use to speed up approvals of Issues and Listings, investors use in appraisal, and both use to bring down transaction costs.
Empowering investors, including bank depositors, to make informed decisions and enhance investor protection.
Metropol Corporgiton has set up a virtual summit to address these major subjects. Attendees are required to register in advance for the webinar
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
Join fellow practitioners and policymakers in discussing the current state of play in Credit Rating on the continent.
