Abstract

There are two fundamental philosophies of credit rating: the point-in-time and the through-the-cycle approaches. This survey consider the explanations of the three main rating agencies, Standard&Poor’s, Moody’s and Fitch, and compare them with the various quantitative models proposed in the scientific literature by researchers, consultants and regulators. Some common frameworks characterizing these models are identified and evaluated.

Keywords: Credit Rating, Probability of Default, Rating Agency, Point-in-Time, Through-the-Cycle.
