We developed a scoring system to align our investments’ scoring to a more global and neutral rating system.
Who determine the scoring of the investments?
With the objective of making our scoring system more transparent and neutral in mind, we asked an external company to do so. We decided to seek the services of professionals on farm investment risk analysis, with many years of experience in Nigeria.
These are individuals that works to deliver financial and strategic analysis and it is composed of a professional team with many years of experience in the field and which aim is to guarantee a high-quality analysis to small-medium sized company.
How does the new scoring system work?
With the implementation of the new scoring system, we want to deliver a more objective risk evaluation. In order to do so, we elaborate analysis below into two segments:
1. Static analysis: it consists in the analysis of data taken in a specific moment of time. The data refer to the investment developer as well as to the insurance. In particular, they are:
- Crop Type
- Farming Season
- Farm Location
- Company Existence
- CAC Registration
- Company Location
- Insurance Type
- Insurance Credibility
- Customer Support
- Website Flexibility
- Mobile Application
- Listed Farms Physical check
2. Dynamic analysis: it consists in the analysis of data that may occur during the whole life of the project. Therefore, the data are about the investment itself.
- Returns on investment
- Risk Factor(s)
The scoring changes in terms of valuation, becoming the least risk A and the highest risk D.
Here’s how it represents the new scoring system, in alphabetical order:
- 90 – 100: A+
- 70 – 89: A
- 41 – 69: B
- 21 – 40: C
- 0 – 20: D
