I saw an advertisement that a specific financial product is backed by CDO (collaterialised debt obligations) with at least a rating of AA.
Normally, a AA rating is considered to be strong, in the case of a rated bond or a corporte entity.
I learned that AA rating for a CDO follows a different set of criteria. The AA rating for a CDO is weaker than for a bond. It does not have the same level of financial strength.
If you read a financial product that is backed by AA rated CDO, you have to be aware that it is of lower quality than a AA rated bond.
