VIEWS: 83 PAGES: 28

Moody's Corporation (Moody’s) is a credit rating agency based in the US. It provides credit ratings, research, tools and analysis. The company operates through two segments, namely, Moody’s Investors Service (MIS) and Moody’s Analytics (MA). Its MIS provides credit ratings and research covering debt instruments and securities. MA of the company provides an array of Moody's non-ratings businesses, which includes risk management software for financial institutions, economic research and data services, quantitative credit analysis tools, data and analytical tools for the structured finance market, and training and other professional services. The products and services are offered to corporate and governmental issuers of securities, institutional investors, depositors, creditors, investment banks, commercial banks and other financial intermediaries. The company has operations across 28 countries and principally conducts its business in the US. It is headquartered at New York, the US. The strategic intent of the company is to grow through strategic acquisitions to expand its business. In line with the strategy, Moody’s acquired Barrie & Hibbert Limited, a provider of risk management modeling tools for insurance companies. In November 2011, the company acquired majority stake in Copal Partners, a company which offers outsourced research and analytical services to institutional customers. This acquisition extends Moody's Analytics' capabilities, enabling it to better help financial institutions manage risk.
