18687. CREDIT-RATING AGENCIES AND THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISIS. This paper addresses the role of credit-rating agencies (such as Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s, AM Best and Fitch) in triggering the global financial crisis during the summer of 2007.

When homeowners began to default on their loans, the agencies downgraded the ratings, which triggered a negative reaction among lenders as well as investors. It is argued that the financial crisis stemmed from conflicts of interest, a lack of competition, and the complexities in understanding pooled investments. Recommendations are offered for reforming the system. Includes outline. KEYWORDS: bond credit rating agency subprime mortgage crisis CRAs collateralized debt obligations financial housing crisis.
