Topic An Innovative Approach to Analyzing Corporate Credit and Bankruptcy Risk
Date Tuesday, December 2, 2014
Time 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Location UT Club
Speaker Tim Gaumer, CFA – Thomson Reuters


Topic Description:
In this presentation, Mr. Gaumer will discuss the innovative research behind the new StarMine Credit Risk Model, a robust, multi-factor predictor of financial distress. This timely, quant-driven approach incorporates a Structural (Merton) framework, forward-looking financial Ratios Analysis and an innovative unstructured Text Mining approach from sources such as news, footnotes and transcripts to provide a more predictive measure of credit risk. Fixed income investors will learn how this research applies to their default and credit risk analysis, while equity managers will learn how this approach is superior to the widely used Altman Z-Score as a measure of bankruptcy risk.
