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.

The leading global rating agencies are Standard & Poor's, Moody's Investors Service and Fitch Ratings.

Bond-rating symbols
  • Group 1: AAA, AA (S&P, Fitch) / Aaa, Aa (Moody's)
    This group represents first-class industrial, bank or government organisations or fixed-income securities which offer the investor an almost risk-free investment.

  • Group 2: A, BBB (S&P, Fitch) / A, Baa (Moody's)
    These are companies with a good to average standing in the market. Their debt is considered a safe investment in a stable economic environment.

  • Group 3: BB, B, CCC, CC, (S&P, Fitch) / C (Moody's)
    These debt-products have an increased risk-profile. These Issuers have economic or financial difficulties and may have problems making timely interest-payments and/or repayment of principal after maturity.

  • Group 4: C, D (S&P, Fitch) / C (Moody's)
    These are insolvent or very problematic debt-products or issuers.
    In each of the groups above there are various gradations of credit-worthiness. In order to differentiate between these gradations, S&P and Fitch add a "plus" or a "minus" next to each rating and Moody's adds a number (1-3) next to each to its ratings.
