Como, Zurich, July 22, 2013 – Ontonix and Wikirating have signed a collaboration agreement with the objective of providing jointly a new and strong message to investors and markets: in a turbulent and globalized economy, new models of rating, beyond the conventional albeit outdated approaches are necessary. "In a turbulent context, traditional ratings don't perform and, as the current crisis shows so eloquently, they can actually become a triggering factor" said Dr. J.Marczyk, the Founder and President of Ontonix. "We believe that in order to avoid the next, worse crisis, ratings must be democratized and turned into a commodity" he added. "Investors need a generally available and reliable rating system but also SMEs should be able to afford a rating in order to participate better in the global economy" he added. "The most important characteristic of such a rating system is that it should be independent, reliable and objective" said D. Credé, the Founder and President of Wikirating. "We believe that the ideal place for such a rating is the internet - the central nervous system of our planet". "Joining forces with Ontonix will be an important step in the direction of providing this new and attractive capability" he concluded.
Wikirating is a worldwide independent, transparent and collaborative rating organization. It offers an open, editable centralized place for all credit rating related topics, and credit ratings for countries, corporations and other financial products. Wikirating unites rating experts, economists and normal people, similar to Wikipedia, but with a stronger and stricter peer review concept.
