Regulating Credit Rating Agencies

Elgar Financial Law series

Aline Darbellay, University of Zurich, Switzerland and University of San Diego, US

This highly topical book examines how the leading credit rating agencies – Moody's, Standard & Poor’s and Fitch – have risen to prominence in the wake of the financial crisis.

‘Aline Darbellay analyzes the obvious system relevance of credit rating agencies in depth and assesses the possible options for regulatory responses to this systemic issue. Thereby, the book is based on a fruitful comparative legal approach and formulates guidance principles for regulators, particularly addressing alternatives for restoring competition in the credit rating industry.’
– Rolf Weber, The University of Zurich, Switzerland
