What is a Moody’s Local Credit Rating? 

Credit Ratings are forward-looking opinions about credit risk. They assess the credit quality of individual obligations or of an issuer’s general creditworthiness. Ratings assigned by Moody’s Local are opinions that reflect the relative credit risk of local credits or entities within a certain jurisdiction.
