Abstract


The healthy development of the bond market is inseparable from the credit rating. In this paper, more than 1,000 samples of short-term financing bonds are chosen to set up a linear regression model for bond issuance pricing, which can be used to analyze the extent of the impact of credit rating on the cost of bond issuance. Model results show that the bond rating has significantly negative correlation with the issue spread. Therefore, it can be conclude that the rating results of Chinese bond rating agencies have significant influence in domestic bond market.
