Back in 2016, Morningstar, which is best known for its reviews on mutual funds, obtained approval from the US securities regulators to offer credit ratings on companies and financial institutions, an activity that has long been dominated by a few big firms such as S&P Global Ratings, Moody’s and Fitch.
DealView CMBS Monitoring is focused on displaying the key credit risks in a CMBS transaction using graphics that identify performance trends, Morningstar projected losses and their impact on the transaction’s bond classes, as well as potential credit events that could affect future performance. The new visual format and navigation eliminates the noise found in industry reports and other third-party services.
Joe Petro, COO at Morningstar Credit Ratings, commented: “We’re excited to present CMBS portfolio managers, traders, and surveillance analysts with this next generation of Morningstar’s DealView CMBS Monitoring service. We developed our analysis with CMBS investors to ensure that its content and presentation efficiently address the credit issues most important to investors.”
