Creditworthiness

Creditworthiness reflects an assessment of the financial characteristics of a company (or in general, of a borrower) in terms of its ability to incur and repay debt. The first characteristic expresses the willingness and the second the capability to fulfil the requirements that enable the associated payments to be made. Creditworthiness can be measured on the basis of various criteria, and it most commonly takes the form of an official “rating”. Creditworthiness is an especially important decision-making factor in the purchase of bonds.
