“In time of heightened uncertainty, our customers rely on Moody’s unparalleled global insights and analysis to deliver comprehensive and integrated perspectives on risk.”

“Demand for our market-leading products and solutions that enable decision makers to holistically indemnify, measure and manage risk propelled Moody’s Analytics to another quarter of impressive growth.

While the fundamental drivers underpinning debt issuance remain firmly intact, global uncertainty significantly curtailed market activity. Given year-to-date performance and our expectation for continued market disruption, we have lowered our full year 2022 adjusted diluted EPS guidance range to $9.20 to 9.70”:  Rob Fauber, President and Chief Executive Officer.
