The European Rating Agency (ERA, Agency) presents its sovereign methodology. The publication of sovereign methodology brings the activity of ERA to a fundamentally new level, as it allows the agency to significantly expand the range of its rating products. The methodology will serve a basis for a number of rating methodologies aimed at corporate borrowers, banks and development institutions, which will give an additional impetus to the development of ERA as a full-fledged and competitive rating agency in the European market.

ERA is a registered credit rating agency

In connection with the adoption of new regulation of credit rating agencies in the European Union, the EUROPEAN RATING AGENCY, a.s., in 2009, began to transform to a rating agency according to rigorous requirements of the Regulation of the European Parliament and Council (ES). This process implied many changes in the process and analytical-methodological field, which led to specialization of the agency on issuing ratings for regulatory purposes. The registration process of the agency under the new regulation was completed in July 2012. The ratings issued by EUROPEAN RATING AGENCY, a.s. can be utilized by all parties on the financial market and state institutions as an officially accepted instrument for risk evaluation across the whole European Union.
