AAA credit rating

AAA credit rating

What is an AAA credit rating?

There are companies and governments which need to borrow money. Special agencies assign credit ratings to them to assess their ability to repay the debt. The AAA is the top score, highlighting that the risk to invest in this company or government is relatively low.

AAA credit rating companies

The companies with a triple-A credit rating are less likely to miss their payments to investors, meaning the risk of default is negligible. Thus, they attract a lot of investors willing to lend them money. However, AAA-rated companies tend to offer investors lower yields than others as the risk is lower. You might be surprised, but only two companies in the United States have an AAA credit rating: Microsoft and Johnson & Johnson.

Which countries have the AAA credit rating?

Standard & Poor’s, an international rating agency, awarded 11 countries with AAA credit ratings.  

  • Germany
  • Australia
  • Canada
  • Switzerland
  • Denmark
  • Liechtenstein
  • Luxembourg
  • Netherlands

This list contains countries with exceptional stability of the economy and the highest level of creditworthiness.

Overall, credit ratings play an essential role in the financial world, showing how risky an investment is. The rating can be not only upgraded but also downgraded. Indeed, there were cases when countries and companies lost their AAA ratings. For example, Standard & Poor’s lowered the rating of the United States from AAA to AA+ level in 2011.
