Our forward-looking credit rating process sets us apart from the agencies.

Mentioned: , , , , , , , , ,

Morningstar initially launched credit ratings on 100 issuers in December 2009. Since then, our credit coverage has expanded to over 650 firms, including banks and insurers, for which we developed separate methodologies along the way.

Across our coverage universe, our fresh, unique approach has unveiled a number of bond investment opportunities and variant credit perspectives relative to the agencies. These views are backed by an issuer credit rating methodology, whose components have demonstrated a solid track record in predicting defaults during the past year.
