Gyaan Ki Baat

A credit rating refers to an unbiased evaluation of the creditworthiness of a company or government entity, either in a broad sense or specifically in relation to a particular debt or financial responsibility. The credit rating essentially involves predicting a company’s capacity to repay its debt and implicitly forecasting the probability of the debtor defaulting.

A strong credit rating signifies that, according to the evaluation of the rating agency, a bond issuer will most likely meet its financial obligations to investors with ease. Conversely, a low credit rating suggests that the issuer may face challenges in fulfilling its payments or potentially default on them.

If a company possesses higher credit ratings, the interest payments on the bonds issued by that company will be lower. Conversely, if a company has lower credit ratings, the interest payments on its bonds will be higher. Credit ratings are provided by Credit Rating Agencies (CRAs) like Fitch, Moody’s, S&P, CRISIL, and others. Credit ratings are represented as letter grades, with AAA being the highest and D being the lowest.
