Mag. Ron Slomovits has established Rating Advisory after twelve years of professional experience in the financial and consulting industry. He supports capital markets participants on credit rating related matters, specialising on regional government ratings, as well as bank ratings. The company offers a broad variety of products, that all have one thing in common: to deepen market participants’ knowledge in credit ratings, which finally puts them in the driver’s seat when it comes down to assessing creditworthiness of international entities.
The basis for that knowledge, Mr. Slomovits gained at the international rating agency Standard & Poor’s, at the department for Sovereigns/International Public Finance. He covered ratings on states and municipalities as well as government-related entities in Austria and Germany, and worked closely with the Financial Institutions team on bank ratings.
In this role he lead annual personal meetings with high-placed government officials in order to analyse creditworthiness of states and municipalities. Mr. Slomovits was also engaged in various sovereign and bank ratings in order to assess and quantify the interrelationship between the entities.
Prior to joining Standard and Poor’s Mr. Slomovits worked as a credit analyst with an Austrian bank, where he gained many years of professional experience in the field of European banking analysis/stress testing and prepared investment decisions by analysing financial robustness of 57 worldwide major banks.
Mag. Slomovits holds a Master’s Degree from Vienna University of Economics and Business.
