S&P Acquires Charter Research

Purchase enables S&P to provide credit risk management services to commercial mortgage market

February 15, 2001


Standard & Poor's, part of McGraw-Hill Companies, (NYSE:MHP) announced today that it has acquired Charter Research. The purchase of the Boston company will enable S&P to provide risk management tools to the commercial mortgage market.

Charter Research's flagship product, Conquest, is an analysis and pricing product for the commercial mortgage-backed securities market. The Conquest software program is used to forecast commercial mortgage behaviors and, ultimately, bond behavior. In its press release, S&P said that Conquest is used by several hundred investors and traders at more than 100 institutional investment firms and broker-dealers.

Charter, which employs approximately 25 people, will soon launch a new product, currently known as Liquid, which has been in beta testing for two years. Users will include banks and insurance companies, which originate and hold the majority of commercial loans.

S&P is capitalizing on the global risk management market, which is expected to grow to $3.4 billion within five years.

"There is a tremendous need for effective credit risk management solutions in the commercial mortgage community," said Gale C. Scott, managing director of Standard & Poor's Real Estate Finance Group. "With its acquisition of Charter Research, Standard & Poor's is taking an active role in the transformation of the commercial mortgage industry through actionable analytical risk management tools and services, which will foster the development of a more efficient, transparent, and connected high-value and real-time information delivery system."

Sam Garcia has been in mortgage lending since 1980, and is managing editor of MortgageDaily.com. He also owns and operates CloseNow.com, a real estate portal site.
