Egan-Jones was founded in 1995 by Sean Egan and Bruce Jones.
In 2007 the SEC designated Egan-Jones Ratings as an NRSRO. Ratings from Egan-Jones are accepted by the National Association of Insurance Commissions (NAIC) as a Credit Reporting Organization and are shown on Bloomberg terminals worldwide.
Our mission is to provide clients with corporate rating reports that are timely, accurate, actionable and attractively priced. Our objective is to have these reports assist managers in realizing investment goals, whether that entails maximizing absolute returns or preserving portfolio value.
We have two rating practices: one for buy side managers and another for issuers.
For buy side managers: We rate approximately 1,050 IG and HY issuer entities by letter grade. Ratings are rules based, quantitative, qualitative, transparent and accurately reflect the firm's current financial condition. We seek to identify improving or deteriorating creditworthiness and financial fundamentals, along with their investment implications in advance of actions by the majority of market participants. Studies by the Federal Reserve and prestigious academic institutions confirm that over time, ratings from the largest NRSROs tend to converge toward the Egan-Jones Rating.
