A credit rating is an assessment of the solvency or credit-worthiness of debitors and/or bond-issuers according to established credit review procedures. These ratings and associated research help investors analyse the credit risks associated with fixed-income securities by providing detailed information of the ability of issuers to meet their obligations. For the issuers of fixed income securities, credit ratings can provide greater market liquidity for their securities and reduced transaction costs. A rating is being continuously monitored. It enables investors to measure their investment risk.
