To offer bonds to the public, most corporations are rated by a ratings agency like Standard & Poor’s or Moody’s. The rating, like an individual’s credit score gives a sense of the corporation’s quality. There are various ratings styles, but a AAA rating is the highest quality rating a company can secure. That means its bonds are offered the lowest rates from lenders and are seen as a safe investment.
