Moody’s Analytics: Understanding our Products & Services

Moody's Investors Service

The publicly disseminated credit ratings provided by Moody's Investors Service play an essential role in financial markets and deliver value to a broad range of market participants.


Our ratings contribute to fixed income investors' assessment of risk by providing well-known standards to describe credit quality across debt sectors and regions. Moody's opinions are anchored in rigorous analysis of credit quality through the economic cycle. Ratings also provide an independent perspective on credit risk that can be utilized for portfolio management and counterparty risk measurement.


We help broaden borrowers' access to global capital markets. The relevance and widespread use of our ratings in the investor community enable Moody's-rated issuers to access a deeper pool of potential investors.

Other stakeholders

Ratings are used by a broad range of other stakeholders, including regulators, legislators and academic researchers. The transparency of our ratings process is supported by relevant and timely communication, including in-depth reports on rating methodologies and analytical practices.
