Moody's Monthly Default Report

Monitor Corporate Risk More Effectively

The Monthly Default Report (MDR) includes a total of 45 exhibits displaying trailing twelve month default rates, issuer-weighted default rate forecasts, historical default experience, historical recovery experience, and rating changes.

The report has recently been enhanced to include additional default rate forecasts that take into account the economic environment based on Moody's Analytics' new default rate forecasting model, the Credit Transition Model. The MDR service includes both a PDF research piece and an excel document containing all the data points underlying the report's exhibits.
