Abstract

The paper studies the banks ratings models developed by using publicly available financial indicators. Models for Moody’s ratings of long-term deposits in foreign currency are constructed. The database includes banks financial data of emerging markets and the European Union. Additionally, financial macroeconomic variables and the country’s rating are considered as key factors. The hypothesis of the negative trend in ratings is tested. The forecast power has been improved by nonlinear rescaling of banks financial indicators. The agency approach to determining emerging market banks ratings is examined. Models of Russian banks ratings are constructed.
