Fund Credit Quality Ratings

A Fund Credit Quality Rating is our forward-looking opinions about the overall credit quality of a fund's portfolio.

Fund Credit Quality Ratings

We assign Fund Credit Quality Ratings to bond funds and other managed pools of fixed-income assets, including cash-enhanced funds, fixed-income hedge funds, local government investment pools, unit investment trusts, and preferred shares trusts.

  • We consider the following as part of the management assessment:

    Experience and track record, credibility and commitment to policies, operating policies and risk preferences, effectiveness of internal controls.

  • Surveillance

    We perform monthly surveillance of the fund to form a view on whether any changes in the portfolio and management operating policies may alter the fund's credit or market risk and, therefore, the rating. Standard & Poor's Ratings Services also conducts an annual management review to identify any changes in management, policy, strategy, and operations.
