KDP Research Site

KDP provides clients with access to its web-based, fixed income research service KDP Advisor, providing fundamental credit analysis and proprietary Default Risk Rankings and recommendations on below-investment-grade companies.


Forward-Looking Proprietary Default Risk Rankings (DRR)

The cornerstone of KDP's research process, and a more effective gauge of credit risk than similar metrics offered by competing services, DRRs assess a company's probability of default and credit quality.

Access to KDP Analysts

For the most up-to-date credit and industry analysis, each KDP Asset Management client has full telephone and email access to the research team.

The core research product consists of written "Comments", analyzing significant corporate developments, as well as in-depth analyses published in the form of "Credit Critiques, Updates, and Credit Views." The latter includes historical and projected financial data, capitalization analysis, business summaries and segment analysis.
