Nonrated

A bond that has not been rated by a large rating agency, usually because the issue is too small.

Nonrated Bonds

Bonds with issuers that have not received a credit rating from one or more of the major credit rating agencies. A bond may be nonrated for a number of reasons, including simply not wishing to pay the fee to the credit rating agency. A nonrated bond is not necessarily risky, but they cannot be investment-grade.
