Fitch Investors Service

A financial services company that primarily offers credit ratings for different kinds of bonds. That is, it serves as a credit ratings agency (CRA) and a research firm. It is one of only ten firms the SEC recognizes as a credit rating agency, though, like other CRAs, its methods have been subject to criticism. For example, it gave the nation of Iceland a near top rating until the nation's bankruptcy in 2008. It is based in New York and was established in 1909.
