A Century of Bond Ratings as a Business
No 2009-47, EconomiX Working Papers from University of Paris Nanterre, EconomiX
Historical accounting datasets about a leader of the bond rating industry have been gathered in order to provide an unprecedented long term view on this business. To better judge of the dynamics at play, similar data for representatives of older and broader business fields is also introduced. Overall, this empirical discussion plays down the importance of regulatory « licenses » given to bond rating firms and puts forward the coming of a « modern » business model where issuers pay for ratings.
