We use ratings to evaluate your credit rating. We estimate the probability that a particular customer will fulfill his contractual payment obligations. The calculation may include, for example, income levels, costs, and expenses existing occupations, occupation, working time, experience from the previous business relationship, repayment of previous loans in accordance with the contract and information from credit services. Grading is based on a mathematically and statistically recognized and proven process. The calculated score values help us to make decisions and integrate into our current risk management.
