Fitch Ratings – Why Work For Us?

For 100 years, Fitch Ratings has been making the future a little more predictable through independent and prospective credit ratings, commentary and research. Our global expertise draws on local market knowledge and spans the fixed-income universe. The additional context, perspective and insights we provide have helped the world’s investors fund a century of growth.

Fitch Ratings was founded as the Fitch Publishing Company on December 24, 1913 by John Knowles Fitch. Located in the heart of the Financial District in New York City, the Fitch Publishing Company began as a publisher of financial statistics. In 1924, the Fitch Publishing Company first introduced the now familiar "AAA" to "D" ratings scale to meet the growing demand for independent analysis of financial securities.

Fitch Ratings was one of the three ratings agencies first recognized by the Securities and Exchange Commission as a nationally recognized statistical rating organization (NRSRO) in 1975.

Financial professionals need a constant flow of timely research and commentary to help them stay abreast of today’s complex and rapidly evolving global capital markets. Fitch Ratings covers a broad range of sectors, issuers and securities with timely insights, objective opinions, and in-depth credit analysis.

Our seasoned analysts produce comprehensive ratings and research—staying current on market trends, and delving into the intricacies of complex structures.
