Abstract

The research reported herein relates to the utilization of statistical methods of rating corporate bonds which would provide an alternative to existing procedures. The principle question addressed in this study is whether or not a bond rating model could be developed which is more reliable, both as a classificator and as a predictor, than existing rating systems.
