RapidRatings Launches New APIs for Risk Management


The enhanced suite of APIs includes new offerings focused on data

RapidRatings, the leader in financial health analytics, today announced
the release of a new application programming interface (API) suite
providing automated, secure financial risk analysis for clients and
partners that can be seamlessly integrated into existing in-house or
third-party platforms. The Risk Management API allows businesses to
increase productivity and risk transparency, scale credit and risk
management processes, and develop advanced custom insights and analysis

Businesses today demand high volumes of financial ratings insight and
more sophisticated analysis scenarios to manage constantly changing risk
profiles for tens to hundreds of thousands of third parties. The Risk
Management API suite automates the traditional data entry and data
extraction processes to support a new level of automation, ratings
insight, and financial analysis capability. Clients and partners looking
to integrate Financial Health Ratings analysis within their
in-house systems or other risk management systems will be able to
automate workflow and run increasingly complex risk management scenarios
for their counterparties.

"Secure, instant, and efficient access to financial health data is a key
requirement for our clients," said Douglas Cameron, President and Head
of Product. "As our clients' risk management processes become more
mature, we're focused on helping them achieve accuracy and scale by
embedding the Financial Health System seamlessly into their current
systems and workflows. We're providing instant access to the analysis
and tools our client and partners need to gain new insights into their
relationships with their vendors and suppliers."

The RapidRatings Risk Management API suite includes:

  • FHR® Generator API - Seamlessly
    communicate high volumes of counterparty data from in-house spreading
    and origination systems to the Financial Health System and instantly
    generate FHRs and other financial health indicators.
  • Portfolio Health API - Access current and historical FHR data
    and other key financial performance indicators for public and private
    companies. Integrate financial health indicators with internal risk
    management processes, systems, and dashboards for access to critical
    financial health information in real-time.
  • Financial Analysis API - Access the underlying, historical
    financial data (balance sheet, income statement and cashflow
    statement) for public and private companies. Detailed financial
    analysis, spend concentration, advanced ratio analysis, and other
    custom scenarios can be automated to enhance risk-based decisions
