Glossary of Personal Financial Terms
In short, AAA ratings (‘triple-A‘ ratings) are the highest credit rating available for an investment, such as a bond or company.
AAA ratings are issued to investment-grade debt that has a high level of creditworthiness with the strongest capacity to repay investors.
Similarly, the AA+ rating is issued by S&P (Standard and Poor) and is similar to the Aa1 rating issued by Moody’s. It comes with very low credit risk and indicates the issuer has a strong capacity to repay.
