Subscription Rating Service

An impartial and innovative leader in providing financial strength ratings.

Independent, Unbiased

KBRA's Subscription Rating Service (SRS) is an impartial and innovative leader in providing financial strength ratings. Unlike other rating agencies, SRS uses a subscription-based business model, which results in independent, unbiased financial strength ratings published quarterly.

Proven Track Record

Our financial strength ratings are used by finance, risk and treasury professionals to monitor the credit worthiness and financial soundness of institutions with whom they do business. Our record speaks for itself: Of the 92 banks and S&Ls that failed in 2011, 88 held the lowest "E" rating from SRS as of January 1, 2011. Similarly, of the 155 banks and S&Ls that failed in 2010, 146 were rated "E" at the start of the year.

Data and Analytics

The SRS product line leverages our investment in large volumes of structured and unstructured data to extract valuable insights for our clients. Our web-based interface provides easy access to our data, allowing users to easily visualize and download data.

Products & Services

SRS offers a portfolio of products and services that analyze the financial soundness of various types of institutions.

  • KBRA Monitor System

    The KBRA Monitor System data is a customizable database that provides access to KBRA ratings and financial information about companies in our ratings universe. Clients have access to expert financial strength ratings on nearly 17,000 institutions, including:

    • ALL US Commercial Banks
    • ALL Savings & Loans
    • ALL Credit Unions (non-corporate)
    • Bank Holding Companies
    • Non-US Banks

  • Troubled Bank List

    The KBRA Troubled Bank List is a quarterly update on the institutions we believe have a higher than normal probability of failure. The report covers banks and S&Ls with poor financial condition, historical ratings and financial information about each institution, and identifies institutions in exceptionally poor financial condition.

  • Title Insurance

    KBRA offers two products to evaluate title insurance companies: Claims-Paying Ability Ratings and Commercial Capacity Limits. We deliver electronic quarterly reports and comprehensive year-end reviews that provide a detailed analysis of an underwriter’s financial condition.

  • Data

    We can deliver your ratings subscription information electronically as a data file. Standard data files include fields such as the latest financial strength rating and key financial ratios. Custom files can also be built for clients interested in receiving additional data.

  • Specialty Analysis

    KBRA prepares special reports at the request of subscribers to supplement their ratings reports. Our deep knowledge base includes coverage of specific institutions, industry trends, quarterly earnings analysis, troubled institutions, and financial regulation.
