Omega Performance成立于1976年，总部位于弗吉尼亚州阿灵顿，是TwentyEighty Inc.的业务部门，为全球客户提供多种在线信用培训课程。目前，该公司共有300多家客户，范围从大型全球银行到当地贷款机构，同时涵盖消费贷款和企业贷款产品。
穆迪公司的Credit Coach平台通过提供定制学习体验，使金融专业人士能够做出更好的贷款决策。比如在该平台的帮助下，用户可以使用复杂的算法跟踪受访者在研究现实生活中的业绩时。由于新增了Omega平台的大量案例研究和内容，Credit Coach有望在未来为贷款和投资专业人士提供更丰富的信贷和风险情景。
Moody’s Corporation announced today that it has entered a definitive agreement to acquire Omega Performance, a leading provider of online credit training.
Founded in 1976 and based in Arlington, Virginia, Omega Performance is a business unit of TwentyEighty Inc. It offers a wide range of online credit training courses to clients worldwide and serves more than 300 customers, ranging from large global banks to local lending institutions.
“Omega Performance is widely recognized for its robust credit training capabilities, which complement the industry-leading learning solutions offered by Moody’s Analytics,” said Ari Lehavi, Executive Director, Learning Solutions at Moody’s Analytics. “Adding Omega’s offerings reinforces Moody’s Analytics as a market standard in credit proficiency for financial institutions worldwide spanning the full spectrum of consumer, small business and corporate lending.”
Omega’s rich repository of lending case studies will significantly enhance the highly-regarded Moody’s Analytics online Credit Coach learning platform, which empowers financial professionals to make better lending decisions by providing a learning experience that is customized to each user’s specific analytical needs. Using sophisticated algorithms that track respondents’ performance as they study real-life business scenarios, Credit Coach guides each learner through targeted coursework designed to remediate indicated areas of weakness. With the addition of Omega’s case studies and content, Credit Coach will provide an even broader range of credit and risk scenarios facing today’s lending and investment professionals.
Both Moody’s clients and Omega’s clients will greatly benefit from the synergies of the combined organization. By using a consistent framework across the institution, banks can systematically and efficiently train their staff, certify their proficiency, and benchmark the performance of both individuals and business units.
“This acquisition is an important development for financial institutions in search of a modern and comprehensive learning platform with a globally recognized credit certification to help elevate lending and risk management practices to compete and navigate more effectively in a rapidly evolving marketplace. The combined capabilities of Moody’s Analytics and Omega Performance offers a best-in-class, cost-effective solution to these challenges,” said Lehavi.
The acquisition is expected to close within 30 days and is not expected to have a material impact on Moody’s 2018 financial results.
