Fitch Ratings

A credit rating by Fitch. As with other credit ratings, a Fitch rating measures the level of risk associated with a particular issuer of debt securities. Credit ratings are extremely important to some issuers, as banks are only allowed to invest in low-risk debt securities. Fitch is one of only 10 firms the SEC recognizes as a credit rating agency, and, along with S&P and Moody's, it is one of the three most prominent. However, the methods of credit ratings agencies have been subject to criticism. For example, most agencies gave high-risk mortgage-backed securities top ratings until they defaulted.
