GCD COVID-19 Crisis Benchmarking Platform

The global effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 has had a profound effect on the world economy. Credit risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic are yet to be fully understood.

To support the industry in understanding the impact of these events on credit risk profiles, GCD has developed a COVID-19 Crisis Benchmarking Platform.


To help banks' credit risk teams understand how the risk profiles of critical industries and obligors are being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, on an ongoing basis.    

How to participate:

  1. Contact Hale Tatar to register
  2. Submit monthly updates of risk estimates (both PD and LGD) for named obligors. GCD's data template is easy to use and ensures complete data security, quality and anonymity.

What you get in return:

Participating banks will receive confidential, high-quality, granular and anonymous output data with a strong validation process that will allow them to:

  • Directly benchmark risk estimates (PD, LGD, and CCF) on specific names with peers 
  • Follow changes in risk estimates over time
