In this lecture we discuss credit ratings and credit rating agencies, particularly as they relate to bond sales, credit risk, and default risk.
We explain what credit risk is and what the ratings actually mean in terms of the risk of an organisation failing to meet its bond payment obligations.
Along the way, we briefly mention commercial paper, liquidation rankings, the relationship of preference shares to bonds, and several more jargon terms used in the credit ratings arena.
