What is SmartConsensus? SmartConsensus is a rating based on a universe of companies covered by a team of research providers known as “Constituents” – Thomson Reuters, Standard & Poor’s and MarketEdge. Detailed analysis is performed on each constituent’s own ratings, historical track records and methodologies to identify the areas of strength for each constituent. These strengths are then factored into the ratings generation process to create an overall team rating (“SmartConsensus”) for each company covered.
