Additional information is provided for significant changes of 0.8 or more to a subscore.

When it comes to loans from the lending companies from Russia and Ukraine, their status remains unchanged since the last update, with Mintos Risk Score and subscores withdrawn for these companies.

Mintos Risk Score methodology

The Mintos Risk Score is an aggregate of four subscores that are assigned to four different aspects of particular loans underlying a Set of Notes. These subscores rate:

  • loan portfolio performance (the portfolio health and historical performance of the loan book),
  • loan servicer efficiency (the capabilities of the loan servicer when it comes to the collection of borrowers’ payments),
  • buyback strength (the buyback obligor’s ability to fulfill contractual obligations, meet liquidity needs, and capital sufficiency), and
  • cooperation structure (the legal setup between the loan issuing company and Mintos).

According to the significance we see in each subscore, the weights of the subscores are loan portfolio performance 40%, loan servicer efficiency 25%, buyback strength 25%, and legal structure 10%.

The Mintos Risk Score rates the risk level of a particular Note on a scale from 10.0 (low risk) to 1.0 (high risk). The calculated score is rounded to 1 decimal place. The Mintos Risk Score can be withdrawn if one or more of the subscores is not available or simply when there are no loans available for investment from a specific lending company, and this is expressed with the value “Score Withdrawn” or (SW).
