2020 EU rating market shares

According to the EU Regulation on Credit Rating Agencies, ESMA registered agencies need to publish an Annual Transparency report, which includes high level information on revenues and staff employed.
While the United Kingdom withdraw from the European Union in January 2020, the transition period until end 2020 (where EU Regulations continued to be applicable in the UK) resulted in some agencies publishing their results for both the UK and EU together.
S&P reports total revenues of EUR 649 mln (up 12% compared to 2019), Moodys generated EUR 507 mln (up 1%) and FitchRatings achieved EUR 288 mln (up 3%). These dominant 3 agencies take around 91,7% of the market (including assumptions for undisclosed revenues).
In terms of market segments, the wider corporate market segment (covering insurances, financial and non-financial companies) accounts for more than EUR 1,1 Bill in Revenues, the Structured Finance segments reaches approx. EUR 240 mln and the sovereign segment around EUR 170 mln.
We estimate total staff at approx. 2950 employees (including assumptions for not disclosed staff). The EU and the UK account each for half of the staff. Fitch employs a total of 924 people, followed by Moodys with 655 and S&P with 543. About 1990 people are directly involved in rating activities and additional 107 in model development/review. In terms of market segments, the broad corporate market segment counts 976 analysts, 427 are active in SF, 189 in the Sovereign market – 395 analysts work across market segments or provide rating support activities.
