Our History

Mòrgij Analytics was founded to exploit analytic technology and systems that were initially developed by Graham Andersen (Founder and Executive Director) that measures the risks and values of residential mortgages.

In the aftermath of the Financial Crisis and the failure of the sub-prime mortgage market (as highlighted in the book and movie, “The Big Short”), Graham set about understanding how the traditional credit agency ratings methodology produced ‘AAA’ ratings on securities that ultimately suffered loss. His analysis identified a number of inconsistencies and omissions as well as a glaring lack of model detail and loan data transparency. From this analysis emerged an analytic methodology, that is more granular and consistent than traditional rating agency or regulatory methods that is called the Risk Quantification Methodology (RQM).

In 2012, Perpetual Corporate Trust and Oliver Wyman became shareholders to enable the launch of MARQ in to the Australian financial markets. The strength and gravitas of Australia’s largest corporate trustee and a world leading financial services advisory firm as partners has helped bring MARQ to the attention of Australian ADIs and RMBS market participants.
