How do I find credit ratings?
Current fixed income information including credit ratings can be found in many of our financial databases by searching for a company and then looking for the ratings or at individual bonds for the rating. For example:
- Bloomberg enter [company ticker]<EQUITY>CRPR<GO> to find ratings from the major rating companies or go enter [company ticker]<CORP><GO> and select a specific bond to view the rating.
- In Workspace bring up your company. From there, view the Debt and Credit section to get credit ratings or dig into individual instruments to get details on maturity, coupon, covenants, and other information.
- In Capital IQ Pro (formerly SNL) bring up the company and go to Finacials to view debt amount, composition, ratios, and covenants.
- In Capital IQ bring up the company and go to the Fixed Income section to get ratings.
