Standard & Poor’s launches Mid-Market Evaluation

Medium-sized European companies – accounting for around one third of the region’s economy and employment – are likely to struggle to meet their multi-billion financing needs in the next few years, as banks reduce their lending to the sector. To help this, Standard & Poor’s recently launched Europe’s first credit benchmark aimed specifically at helping increase the transparency and comparability of mid-sized companies from a credit perspective, which may help facilitate access to new sources of capital market funding.

Following news outreach and a round of interviews, the launch saw significant coverage in the investor and corporate treasury trade press, as well as in a number of regional newspapers.
