    ESMA Publishes Market Share Figures for Credit Rating Agencies in EU

    November 29, 2019

    ESMA published its annual market share calculation for EU registered credit rating agencies (CRAs) for 2019. The results show that the three largest CRAs—S&P Global Ratings, Moody’s Investor Service, and Fitch Ratings—account for 92.1% of the market for credit rating agencies in EU, representing a 2.7% increase on 2018. The remaining 7.9% of the market is shared between the other 23 CRAs that are registered in EU. The annual market share calculation also provides a breakdown of the type of ratings offered by each registered CRA as well as the proportion of ratings for EU debt issuance by asset class. This market share calculation is valid for use from its date of publication and is applicable until the date of publication of the next Market Share Calculation in 2020.

    The CRA Regulation, under Article 8d, specifies that issuers and related third parties are required to consider appointing a CRA with no more than 10% total market share whenever they intend to appoint one or more CRAs to rate an issuance or entity. The report on the CRA market share calculation provides background and guidance on how the market share calculation should be used by issuers or related third parties. It also provides information on how the market share is calculated, a list of CRAs registered in EU along with their percentage of total market share by revenue, and an overview of the type of credit ratings offered by each CRA registered in the EU. The report shows the proportion of EU debt issuance for each asset class rated by individual CRAs, along with details on the Common Supervisory Approach and Standard Form adopted by ESMA members in respect of Article 8d.
