AFP 2018 Speaking Session – Slideshow – What is the impact of a company’s ratings on public capital markets, its banks’ internal profitability assessments, and its banking relationships? The answer allows treasury practitionners to more effectively manage bank relationships as well as to understand the key components to consider when allocating business to banks.

Many Fortune 1000 companies receive an external rating from one or more nationally recognized statistical rating organizations, commonly known as credit rating agencies. In this session, corporate practitioners learn about the different roles of the national credit rating agencies versus the internal ratings assigned by their banks, as well as the differences in the methodologies each group uses to assign those ratings.
