Company Profile

Based in Kuwait, Capital Standards Rating (CSR) is the only independent rating agency.  CSR is licensed by the Ministry of Commerce and is incorporated in accordance with the international credit rating agencies eligibility criteria as recommended by the IOSCO (International Organization of Securities Commissions).

CSR is equipped to provide a full range of credit rating services in the MENA region. This includes:

The rating of issuers, such as corporate entities, small medium enterprises (SMEs) and financial institutions, which includes Islamic and commercial banks, investment companies, other finance companies and insurance companies. Our ratings are based on international as well as national rating scale. The national rating scale reflects the relative credit risk of companies within a specific country

The rating of debt instruments, such as sukuk, bonds, bank loans, short term debt securities and structured finance transactions

The rating of corporate governance, feasibility studies, funds, asset managers and project finance

For each of the rating services, CSR delivers independent and practical solutions, using both standardized quantitative and qualitative analyses in its methodologies.  This supports CSR's mission of improving the market’s efficiency and transparency.

The ownership and management structure of CSR ensures complete independence from any direct or indirect control of any private sector, business group, or financial institution.  A rating assigned by the rating committee, which includes the senior management of CSR, reflects CSR's objectively formed opinion of credit risk.  To remain unbiased, the agency does not act as a participant in the financial market, i.e. does not manage funds or assets.  To avoid any possible conflict of interest, CSR ensures that every analyst assigned to a credit rating team is not related in any way to the issuer or issue being rated. 

In addition to rating services, CSR also offers consulting and research services.  The unique combination of local insights and global perspective, and providing independent & objective opinions, solutions and information can help our clients make better informed business & investment decisions and improve the efficiency of the market & market participants.
