GEMS helps international financial institutions to measure and manage credit risk in the emerging markets business

The Global Emerging Markets (“GEMs”) Risk Database Consortium is the world’s largest default and loss database for the emerging markets business of International Financial Institutions (“IFIs”).

Its primary purpose is to provide pooled data on credit default rates from customers funded by the contributing IFIs, their rating migration and the recovery rates of defaulted projects.

As of the end of 2017, the GEMs Risk Database is composed of approximately 9,000 counterparts and provides unique credit risk information for IFIs. This represents a real alternative to the more general statistics published by rating agencies and conforms with Risk Management best practices and Basel regulation.
