Join the Global Interdependence Center for this half day conference as we explore the role, influence and evolution of rating agencies as they pertain to capital debt markets.
Debt ratings agencies are instrumental to the debt capital markets. Firms such as S&P, Moody's and Egan Jones commit considerable resources in assessing the creditworthiness of borrowers, enabling investors and lenders to make informed credit decisions.
However, with the onset of the global financial crisis, there are many questions. Does the present debt rating system actually work? Is it proactive, or reactive? How was the present system created? Are there conflicts of interest? What impact does "politics" have with respect to rating determinations? Most importantly, does the present system & Process serve investors adequately by providing independent information?
Please join us on February 29th at the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia as we address these questions.
