David Keisman is a senior vice president in the corporate finance group at Moody’s Investors Service.  His responsibilities included forming the data and research necessary to support the creation and implementation of Moody’s LGD Ratings. He currently maintains the Moody’s Ultimate LGD database which captures credit loss information on more than 4,500 defaulted corporate bank loans and high-yield corporate bonds, as well as on other debt instruments.

Prior to joining Moody’s Investors Service in 2005, David managed Standard and Poor’s Recovery Analysis group and the Facility Risk Rating group.  David co-founded Portfolio Management Data, a provider of data and analytic services to the leveraged finance and commercial lending community.  Standard and Poor’s acquired PMD in May 2000.

He has also worked at Chase Manhattan in its credit risk policy area; while at Chase he created the banking industry’s first comprehensive, centralized loan-loss database.  That database tracked thousands of loans that defaulted over a 10-year period from Chase, Chemical Bank, Manufacturer’s Hanover and Texas Commerce Bank.  He also managed the team that reconciled the Facility Risk Grading Systems of Chase and Chemical Bank and of Manufacturers Hanover and Chemical Bank when those banks merged.
