Create a compelling story so you’re not at the losing end

With the rapid pace of development in the global capital markets, the number of companies trying to get themselves rated by the three global rating agencies (Moody’s, S&P and Fitch) has been increasing year after year. As majority of these companies are either partially aware or completely unaware of the rating process and the related methodology followed by the rating agency, so they hire the services of rating advisors who are domain experts.

In this whitepaper, we discuss the various steps involved in a typical credit rating process in a timeline format and how a rating advisor can help a company to get a better international credit rating.

Acuity Knowledge Partners is partnering with the rating advisory divisions of various investment banks and commercial banks, enabling them to reduce their time to market.

Key Takeaways

  • With credit ratings playing a significant role in attracting investors to the primary and secondary bond markets, the workloads of rating advisory firms have also increased exponentially in recent years
  • A typical rating process normally takes 10–12 weeks
  • Rating advisors can help companies get the best credit rating based on (a) their solid working relationships with key senior rating analysts, and (b) their demonstrated ability in anticipating rating considerations and providing precise analytical advice
  • Acuity Knowledge Partners can assist rating advisors in the preparation of rating questionnaires, industry research, spreading of financials, peer comparison, indicative rating analysis and rating presentations
