Trust Ratings

TGF Analytics produces Trust Ratings on more than 1,500 publicly traded companies in the U.S. Trust Ratings are based on an in-depth assessment of factors like financial governance, quality of earnings, Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors, relative risk, and our proprietary Market-Implied Governance Metric, which uses market-based assessments of a company to supplement these other analytics. 

Gain an insight that you can't find anywhere else to assist you in the assessment of your investment in, or relationship with, publicly traded companies. 

For Equity and Credit Portfolios

Our data is used to create equity portfolio benchmarks of only the most-trusted companies in the marketplace  —  to identfy those companies that are missing from your portfolio as well as those you might wish to remove.

As with equities, a better understanding of trust will improve on credit portfolio performance and standard credit risk measures, enhancing your analytic capabilities. 

For Custom Analysis and Risk Assessments

Trust is essential in mulitple business applications. You can engage us to provide custom trust analytics to fit your specific needs.
