modeFinance becomes a rating agency

The Trieste-based company that has dealt with online financial advice since last July has been authorised by Esma (the authority for the supervision of the European financial market) to carry out the activity of credit rating agency. This means that modeFinance has become a true rating agency, so it will be able to grade non-financial corporations; the assessments will be issued through a subscription model paid by those who are interested in learning about the evaluations and not by whom is evaluated. The go-ahead came after intensive checking and transparency activities carried out by the European Authority through the recognition of different requirements on governance, conflict of interest and methodological aspects. Here the founder, Mattia Ciprian, explains why for them receiving this authorisation was like winning a marathon.

Sardex seduces the Financial Times

The Sardinian flagship ends up on the home page of the Financial Times and makes a certain impression, especially when it comes to Sardex as the possibility of giving “a real help during the financial crisis.” And then suddenly the founders themselves play centre stage in a long article, which tells the story, the idea, and the development of the virtual currency created by them. It talks about the “Sardex factor“, and how its chain represents in a certain sense the very fabric of the Sardinian community.
