Broadly speaking, a rating is an assessment, for a given time horizon, of an obligor’s ability to honor its contractual obligations. External agency ratings, as well as banks’ judgmental rating grades, are usually ordinal measures of credit risk (as opposed to, for example, KMV Moody’s ‘expected default frequencies’ — EDFs), which have been determined by taking into account all relevant available information (both quantitative and qualitative). The ordinality allows for the ranking of obligors in terms of relative riskiness. To quantify obligors’ credit risk, probabilities of default are estimated for each rating category; the riskier a rating category is, the higher its PD estimate should be.
