Example text

For long-term debt obligations, a credit rating is a forward-looking assessment of the probability of default and the relative magnitude of the loss should a default occur. For short-term debt obligations, a credit rating is a forward-looking assessment of the probability of default. Credit ratings are provided by specialist companies referred to as rating agencies. They include Moody’s Investors Service, Standard & Poor’s Corporation, and Fitch Ratings. On receipt of a formal request, the rating agencies will carry out a rating exercise on a specific issue of debt capital.

Types of Credit Risk 25 The rating systems of the rating agencies use similar symbols. Separate categories are used by each rating agency for short-term debt (with original maturity of 12 months or less) and long-term debt (over one year original maturity). 1 shows the long-term debt ratings. In all rating systems the term “high grade” means low credit risk or, conversely, high probability of future payments. The highest-grade bonds are designated by Moody’s by the letters Aaa, and by the others as AAA.

The first column shows the ratings at the start of the year and the first row shows the ratings at the end of the year. Let’s interpret one of the numbers. Look at the cell where the rating at the beginning of the year is AA and the rating at the end of the year is AA. This cell represents the percentage of issues rated AA at the beginning of the year that did not change their rating over the year. That is, there were no downgrades or upgrades. 75% of the issues rated AA at the start of the year were rated AA at the end of the year.
