About Sigma Ratings

Who We Are

Sigma Ratings (“Sigma”) is an award winning start-up born at MIT in 2016 that uses AI and machine learning to assess company-level non-credit financial crime (e.g., money laundering, corruption and terrorist financing) and governance risk. Our mission is to help make the world more open and transparent by incentivizing and highlighting good corporate behavior.

The leadership team includes professionals with more than 30 years of combined experience in government, finance, law and emerging markets – including deep domain expertise on counter illicit finance-related matters. Our team is supported by dedicated technology experts with experience working in top data analytics firms.

What We're Building

Utilizing both public and private data, Sigma Ratings dynamically tracks company-level non-credit risks across multiple jurisdictions. In generating its scores and ratings, Sigma is solving a number of hard technology problems related to emerging market data collection, analysis and display that are valuable to global financial institutions, investors and governments.
