As rating agencies currently lack sufficient historical data on defaults, comparison of credit ratings is possible based on the defined rating categories of Russian rating scales of rating agencies, and also on the basis of the practice of assigning credit ratings to individuals or bonds by Russian Credit Rating Agencies.

Credit rating represents the opinion of a credit rating agency on the ability of a rated entity to meet its financial obligations and assess the level of credit risk of the issuer in general or for its individual obligations. At the same time, a credit rating cannot and should not be the only way to assess credit risk. However, while there is no possibility to independently analyze the creditworthiness of a borrower or an issuer, a credit rating is an impartial judgment that can help the investor or lender make a decision.

The comparison of rating scales of Russian credit agencies allows you to compare rated entities that have ratings from different credit rating agencies.
