Policy for Placing Ratings on Credit Watch

Last Reviewed On: December 30, 2016

Subsequent to assignment of the rating, and before the scheduled review process, if any material changes in the rating drivers take place and if Acuité believes that such developments have a possible impact on the rating assigned then the rating shall be put on Rating Watch till the time the review takes place.

Acuité will inform the public by disseminating the Rating Watch through a press release, which would, inter alia, state that ‘The rating is placed under Rating Watch as these developments may have an impact on the rated entity and its debt repayment ability'.

Our exciting journey started in 2005 with rating of bank borrowers most of whom were small and medium enterprises. At that time, credit rating was a concept known only to large issuers of capital market instruments. Since then, like a caterpillar transforms itself into a beautiful butterfly, we transformed to rate bonds, bank facilities of large corporates and issuers across industries. Along came many achievements - SEBI Registration in 2011, RBI accreditation in 2012, 50,000 ratings in 2018, 5,000 Bond and Bank Loan Ratings in 2017, launch of India's first Android and iPhone app to disseminate rating, tamper-proof QR-code-enabled rating rationales, and SMERA Terminal to name a few.

Now is the time to re-emphasize our increasing footprint across all segments of ratings through the launch of our new name - 'Acuité'.

The name has changed. The spirit of upholding highest standards of analytical rigour, continuous improvement, excellence in our processes and quest for innovation remains the same. We would like to re-emphasize that we will continue to work hard to provide independent, unbiased and timely opinion of highest standard.

Acuité means 'sharpness and clarity of thought and vision'. Let our research and ratings help you take decisions with confidence.
