The Plimsoll Rating enables you to identify 9 out of 10 failing companies 2 years in advance


Choose the relevant Plimsoll Analysis for your industry and you will get an instant, constantly updated opinion on the health and prospects of every company. From the largest player down to the smallest start up, each company will have been rated as Strong, Good, Mediocre, Caution or Danger. These rating will let you quickly see who is strong, who is heading for failure, what the strong are doing differently and much more.

No company escapes the Plimsoll Rating - 9 out of 10 companies currently in administration were rated "Danger" by Plimsoll up to 2 years prior to their demise.

The Plimsoll Chart is a very accurate way to measure overall financial strength. I use it to identify distressed and poorly run companies. quote
