Determinants of commercial mortgage-backed securities credit ratings : Australian evidence
Chikolwa, Bwembya & Chan, Felix (2008) Determinants of commercial mortgage-backed securities credit ratings : Australian evidence. International Journal of Strategic Property Management, 12(2), pp. 69-94.
Using artificial neural networks (ANN) and ordinal regression (OR) as alternative methods to predict Commercial Mortgage-backed Securities (CMBS) credit ratings, we examine the role that various financial and industry-based variables have on CMBS credit ratings issued by Standard and Poor’s from 1999-2005. Our OR results show that rating agencies use only a subset of variables they describe or indicate as important to CMBS credit rating as some of the variables they use were statistically insignificant. Overall, ANN show superior results to OR in predicting CMBS credit ratings.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
