Credit ratings are evaluations undertaken by specialized agencies collecting financial information about different countries’ economies in order to establish their performances. Many foreign investors coming to Dubai follow credit rating agencies’ reports when deciding to do business in the UAE which is why the rating is very important for the Government. The largest credit rating agencies in the world are Standard and Poor’s, Fitch and Moody’s. Each agency has its own criteria based on which a country’s credit rating can be upgraded or downgraded. 

Dubai’s rating according to credit rating agencies

The United Arab Emirates’ economy is usually assessed as very good by credit rating agencies. In 2015 Standard and Poor’s evaluated Dubai’ credit rating at AA which among the best in the world. Fitch has also rated the country AA, while Moody’s Aa2. These ratings come after the success achieved by Dubai financial companies, sovereign wealth and pension funds. All three major credit rating agencies consider Dubai’s strong ratings to come from the economic growth and stable conditions in the financial and banking sectors, affirming the corporate rating in still increasing.
