Abstract

In this paper we succinctly outline the modeling approach of Moody's for private firm default prediction. The processes of transforming ratios, weighting the transformations, and mapping to a default probability are examined. Accounting ratios in the US, Canada, and Australia are compared and contrasted, including their relationship to default probabilities.

Keywords: Default prediction, Australia

JEL Classification: G33, M41
