Morningstar Corporate Credit Ratings

Our forward-looking credit rating methodology is underpinned by our equity analysts' fundamental research, expectations of future cash flows, and robust financial risk measures. Four key scores roll up into each company's rating: business risk, cash-flow cushion, solvency score, and distance to default.
