This guide contains resources and guidance to help students find company, industry & country information.

Credit rating agencies


Credit rating agencies assess the creditworthiness of companies, institutions and sovereign nations.

The three major credit rating agencies are: S&P, Moody's, and Fitch. You can create free accounts with each of them, which will allow you to:

  • view their rating on companies, industries and countries,
  • stay on top of their rating updates,
  • access some (not all) of their rating reports for free.
