Credit Ratings

Credit rating is an analysis of the credit risks associated with a financial instrument or a financial entity. Credit ratings can explain to the credit quality of an individual debt issue, such as a corporate note, a municipal bond or a mortgage-backed security, and the relative likelihood that the issue may default. Each agency applies its own methodology in measuring creditworthiness and uses a specific rating scale to publish its ratings opinions. Typically, ratings are expressed as letter grades that range, for example, from ‘AAA’ to ‘D’ to communicate the agency’s opinion of relative level of credit risk. Hence to invest in any financial instrument of the company it is important to understand the risk attached to the company and ratings given by the agencies to the Company/Instrument.
