Ratings
RECOGNIZING AND REWARDING BUSINESS INTEGRITY

  • Sigma Ratings evaluates compliance-related risk

    Our model evaluates an entity by comparing its inherent risk against its control effectiveness to produce a letter grade. Our ratings represent a new standard that creates transparency, builds trust, and attracts investment.

    Join a growing number of innovative entities around the world who are already benefiting from the rating process.

  • Certified Ratings
    Without private internal data, Sigma Ratings cannot be confident enough to assign the highest rating grades.

    By certifying a rating, Sigma Ratings will vouch for an entity’s Business Integrity around good governance and financial crime compliance effectiveness.

Why Certify?
Certified Ratings™ come with a full Rating Report that can be shared with investors, regulators, and counterparties.

Build trust, differentiate and gain a competitive advantage through Sigma's Certified Ratings™.
