GCD's Mission is to help banks understand and model credit risks. The comprehensive data pools are collected over a decade and distributed back to members for their own research and modelling.

Global Credit Data collects raw data from its members and distributes it back to them for use in their own analysis and modelling. GCD supports its members by providing a flexible high-end tool on the data pool: the GCD Visual Analyzer. Member banks can create dynamic Reference Data Sets and generate instant views on the data.

GCD's committees & working groups

Members' needs for discussion of best practice in data, modelling and risk measurement is well served by ad hoc working groups.


Often the key benefit of these groups is the discussion and cross information about best practices, while some will also produce an output paper.

Working Groups

GCD's working groups are created to further the impact of the data collected and are key to validating the publications that are created.
