Sovereign Credit Ratings

A sovereign credit rating is issued by a credit rating agency after evaluating the country’s economic and political conditions.

Sovereign credit ratings provide investors with an indication of the level of risk associated with investing in a particular country while taking into account the Financial, Economic and Political factors.

The credit rating of a country plays a crucial role when it is issuing debt on the international bond markets – the better the rating, the lower the interest rate investors will be willing to accept on the debt.

Below is a global summary of the latest long-term foreign-currency ratings issued by the largest credit agencies.
