Bank Rating

Bank Rating

A measure of a bank's likelihood of remaining solvent. Credit ratings agencies conduct analysis in order to determine bank ratings; the criteria and the ratings themselves may change from time to time. Bank ratings are important to investors as they make certain investment decisions, such as whether to buy stock in a bank or in another company heavily exposed to the banking system. A bank rating should not be confused with an investment grade rating, though the concepts are somewhat similar.
