TE* S&P Moody's Fitch      
100 AAA Aaa AAA Prime    
95 AA+ Aa1 AA+ High grade  
The TE credit rating is driven by a model created at Trading Economics. We take into account the average grade given by credit rating agencies plus multiple economic indicators, exchange rates, government bond yields, stock indexes, commodity prices and very little discretion. Unlike the ratings provided by the major credit agencies, our index is numerical because we believe it is easier to understand and visualize on historical data charts and more insightful when comparing multiple countries. Our ratings are also more quantitative and more independent because they are less likely to be manipulated by a single credit rating agency. Please note this is still a beta model with lots of work in progress. If you have any question please email us at contact@tradingeconomics.com
