The paper is aimed at comparing the divergence of existing credit risk models and creating a synergic model with superior forecasting power based on a rating model and probability of default model of Russian banks. The paper demonstrates that rating models, if applied alone, tend to overestimate credit risk of a bank, whereas probability of default models give underestimated results. As a result of the assignment of optimal weights and monotonic transformations to these models, the new synergic model of banks’ credit risks with higher forecasting power was obtained. Moreover, the output of the synergic model was calibrated into probability of default using the dynamic historic default frequencies in order to obtain a quantitative measure of credit risk. The construction of a dynamic rating scale also allowed us to develop an investment strategy: the most stable period of Russian banks with the highest ratings is the first two years after the rating assignment, while investing in highly speculative banks, on the contrary, is advisable after two years from the moment of a rating assignment.

National Rating Agency (NRA) and National research university Higher School of Economics (HSE) agreed on full-scale cooperation and collaboration in preparing analytic materials and shared participation in developing risk assessment models.
The aim of the agreement is realization of principles of openness and transparency in the financial market, as well as the improvement of theoretical and practical ways of risk assessment involving postgraduates and students in the project process.
Further cooperation of NRA and HSE, represented by the faculty of economics, supposes:
“It is important for us to develop cooperation with leading universities in order to base on academic approaches and competencies accumulated by the faculty, as well as to jointly prepare analytic researches and develop new risk assessment models in our methodological work. Among the first projects with the HSE Faculty of Economics, we plan to participate jointly in the development of methodology for project evaluation and project companies. The work is planned to start in autumn of this year.” - Victor Chetverikov, Managing Director for NRA development projects.
