Rating Agency Advice
We emphasize a disciplined, three-step approach to advising and assisting you through the rating agency process.
- Rating Assessment – Considering available rating criteria, the characteristics and profile of similar credits, and quantitative analysis of the issuer or financial program, we objectively assess the highest, realistically achievable rating target.
- Issue Resolution – We determine the specific strengths and weaknesses of the credit that must be addressed and resolved in the rating process and program documentation.
- Presentation – We document the credit in a presentation describing the issuer's plan of financing; its financial condition, management strengths and economic attributes. The presentation provides the quantitative analysis required to adequately support the desired rating outcome.
