              In the course of the rating process, a Moody’s analyst:

              • Gathers information sufficient to evaluate risk to investors who might own or buy a given security,

              • Develops a conclusion in committee on the appropriate rating,

              • Monitors the security on an ongoing basis to determine whether the rating should be changed, and

              • Informs the marketplace of Moody's actions.


              The rating process involves an active, ongoing dialogue between the issuer and Moody's analysts. Once published, Moody's ratings are continuously monitored and updated through dialogues and regular meetings, during which issuers are encouraged to raise any concerns and present all materials that are pertinent to the analysis.

               

              If an issuer is new to Moody's, the rating process begins with an introductory meeting or teleconference call. The purpose of this initial discussion is to introduce Moody's rating process and methodology, and to provide additional information regarding the specific sorts of data that will be most useful in developing an understanding of the organization. Our goal is to be as transparent as possible, and to ensure that issuers understand Moody's rating methodology and process.
