Credit ratings are a critical measure used extensively in commercial, financial and capital markets to support key business decisions. As one of our strongest skills, we provide you with any number of services you may need to get rated by an internationally/nationally recognized organization. Our partners in this area include the most well-known credit rating companies all around the globe.
Credit ratings provide an Agency's opinion as to the capacity, viability and willingness of an entity, issuer, or counterparty to meet their respective financial commitments. An Investment Grade classification is attributed to those credits that exhibit a lower probability of default, and are assigned a rating of BBB- and above. A Sub-Prime classification is assigned to those credits with a higher risk profile, being rated BB+ and below, and having a greater expectancy of default. Our partners in corporate rating services assign credit ratings based on the credit worthiness of an entity, commitment or product, and provide probabilistic assessments of default over the short, medium and long-term.
Based on your needs we can provide credit ratings on government and commercial agencies, international conglomerates, infrastructure consortia, financial institutions, publicly listed entities, private corporations and small-to-medium sized enterprises across a range of industry sectors both domestically and internationally. As such, our partners are also able to provide detailed industry intelligence, benchmarking reports and analysis across a wide range of sectors.
