Zusammenfassung

Ratingagenturen beurteilen die Kreditwürdigkeit (Bonität) von Kreditnehmern und reduzieren dadurch die risikobehaftete Informationsasymmetrie zwischen Kreditgebern und -nehmern auf dem Finanzmarkt. Potenzielle Investoren werden von drei, den Markt mit 97 Prozent Marktanteil dominierenden Ratingagenturen über die relative Kreditausfallwahrscheinlichkeit potenzieller Schuldner informiert: Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s und Fitch. Obwohl die drei großen Ratingagenturen bereits seit mittlerweile rund 100 Jahren existieren, gerieten sie erst in den letzten 20 Jahren zunehmend in die Kritik.
