From the Paper:

"Three prominent credit rating agencies are widely acknowledged globally. They are Moody's Investor Service, Standard & Poor's and Fitch Ratings. They accord domestic and external ratings at the request of borrowers. They are present in almost all the countries having a universal rating scale. The Standard & Poor's rating agency was first instituted by Henry Varnum Poor in 1860 with the guiding principle 'the investor has the right to know'. In the year 1906, Standard Statistics Bureau Company was established to entail the financial information on US companies that in 1916 started to assign debt ratings to corporate and sovereign debt. During 1940 it introduced Municipal bond ratings. (International Credit Rating Agencies)"
