Categoria — Rating del credito

DBRS Limited is an international rating agency founded in 1976. The agency is headquartered in Toronto (Canada). DBRS is a major rating agency, fourth after the Big Three (Moody’s, S&P, and Fitch).

DBRS assigns credit ratings both to companies and to the bonds issued by them. The Cbonds database contains about 670 ratings from this agency. Of these, around 500 are active (not withdrawn).

Currently, DBRS assigns credit ratings to issuers and issues on 11 scales, namely:

2. Issuer Rating – Examples include Brookfield Corporation, British Columbia, and Walmart

The table below shows the correspondence between the rating scales of the Big Three and DBRS agencies.

It should be noted that the DBRS agency uses high or low marks instead of +/- symbols next to the letter value of the credit rating. For example, a BB- rating from Fitch would correspond to a BB (low) from DBRS.
