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 operational efficiency of the loan servicer evaluated through its procedures and controls during loan issuance and collection processes),
  • 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).

The Mintos Risk Score rates the risk level of a particular Set of Notes 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 The Mintos Risk Score can be withdrawn if one or more of the subscores is not available or simply when there are no loans available for investment from a specific lending company, and this is expressed with the value “Score Withdrawn” or (SW).
