Moody's places Brookfield's ratings on review for upgrade

Moody's placed Brookfield Asset Management Inc.'s and its financing units' ratings on review for possible upgrade, following the company's announcement that it will acquire roughly 62% of Oaktree Capital Group LLC.

The ratings include Brookfield's Baa2 senior unsecured (Foreign) rating, Baa2 senior unsecured (Domestic) rating, and (P)Baa2 senior unsecured shelf (Foreign) rating.

The review is based on the positive effects the acquisition of Oaktree should have on the Brookfield's credit profile, which includes, among other things, diversification into new alternative asset classes, and the benefits of affiliating with one of the global leading fixed-income managers.
