The Cerved SME Report illustrates the financial well-being of Italy’s small and medium-sized companies, thanks to Cerved’s vast databases and outstanding analytical skills.
Now in its fourth edition, the Report examines the financial statements, demographic trends, trade payment patterns and default risk of SMEs. Proprietary archives are combined with scoring, rating and forecasting models that Cerved has developed over more than forty years of experience in corporate credit risk analysis.
For the 2017 edition, using a database that combines Cerved and Italian National Social Security Institute (INPS) data, special attention is devoted to the topic of Italy’s Industry 4.0 plan and, more broadly, to the potential impact of investing in innovation on both businesses and workers.
