Credit Rating

A professional and independent view on credit ratings of firms and official entities are of great importance in international financial markets. Such a credit rating done by accepted rating-firms makes borrowing easier, more efficient and will benefit the borrower in paying interest rates suitable to the credit rating.

Three credit rating companies give the Icelandic government a credit rating, both as a borrower abroad and domestically. These firms are Moody´s Investor Service, Standard & Poor´s and Fitch.
