Ratings have been noted to be slow to adjust to changes in economic and financial market conditions (Van Gestel and Baesens 2009: 155), White 2010; Langohr and Langohr 2008: 369; Darbellay 2014: 186–88). The agencies often attribute this phenomenon to the “through-the-cycle” orientation of ratings. Through-the-cycle ratings place less emphasis on changes in shortterm credit quality.

Credit risk assessment can be broken down into three broad types: scoring, traditional statistics, and financial or market-based. The first two align themselves, and are congruent with, the traditional approach of capital budgeting in that they evaluate (relative) risk of default using Pri vat e Cre di t R i s k 33 accounting data.
