Investors can and do gain from independent municipal credit analysis to gauge the efficacy of commercial credit rating agency opinions or ratings on municipal bonds.
Self directed investors and institutional investors wanting a second opinion, can do this by simple comparison using our Forecast Rating and Credit Value Index.
Why? Because Municipal bond pricing and differences in yields between rating grades are dependent on these issuer paid rating companies'. Much more so than any other domestic or international debt market.
The risk of nonpayment between deserving single and double-A rated municipal, for instance, is empirically insignificant, but yield differentials are not.
On lower rated municipals, including forecast triple - B's, Agency rated at single-A or higher, credit spreads increase along with the opportunity to gain or protect yield using BBR's services.
