09/06/2016 - Study on the State of the Credit Rating Market

Europe Economics’ study on the state of the credit rating market has been published by DG FISMA. The report describes the current extent of competition and of competitiveness in the different segments of the credit rating market (such as sovereigns, corporate and covered bonds, structured finance instruments). We also assessed the current and anticipated impact of the Regulation on credit rating agencies (CRAR3) on competition. We identified and assessed the feasibility of potential additional measures to further promote competition and quality in credit rating. We worked with three academic collaborators: Dr Dion Bongaerts, Dr Nelson Camanho and Dr Sandra Einig. The project was led by Ross Dawkins.
