Loan, Recovery and CLO Ratings

A Loan Rating is the issue-specific rating assigned to a borrower's syndicated loan. 

Loan Ratings are performed on syndicated loans comprised of bank lenders and institutional investors. In the Loan Rating process, we review Revolving Lines of Credit, First Lien Term Loans, Second Lien Term Loans and Mezzanine Debt. Our Loan Ratings are widely used in the loan market for credit risk assessment, pricing and structuring of syndicated loans.

We have assigned ratings on syndicated loans since 1996 across different sectors and borrower types, including investment grade, speculative grade, infrastructure, and project finance loans.  We currently rate syndicated loans of over 1,400 borrowers totaling more than USD 2.1 trillion.
