The MSI 20000 standard was officially created in 2008, between New York and Paris, driven by researchers and financial professionals, after the “subprime” crisis. Initially and following the bankruptcy of the American bank Lehman Brothers, on September 15, 2008, it was a question of identifying the soundest listed financial institutions, in order to avoid by construction and contagion effect, to reproduce the crash of 2008. But very quickly, given demand, the standard has been rolled out to all types of companies, listed or not, all sectors of activity combined. In 2017, the MSI 20000 standard became the international standard for financial quality; following a period of 100 months of experimentation, within a strictly supervised scope. In 2018, the standard was taken up and distributed by the world leaders in certification.
