Jan 13, 2010, 10:05 ET from Structured Risk Analytics LLC

MOUNTAINSIDE, N.J., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Structured Risk Analytics LLC ("SRA") today announced that it has launched a survey of investors' opinions on rating agency performance and future expectations in a longer range view. SRA believes that, with the credit crisis showing signs of slowly receding, it is time to take a longer range view and discuss constructively what works well and what investors expect going forward.

The credit crisis took a lot of attention in the last two years, albeit rightfully so, and has strained investor trust in rating agencies. In reshaping and rebuilding that trust, SRA believes it is useful to examine some good aspects and use them as a building block for the future.

To that end, SRA invites investors to confidentially share their views in our survey by going to The results will be analyzed in aggregate and key findings in general terms will be published possibly in February 2010 without attribution to any investor.

Ed Bankole, president of SRA, said that he expects this venue will be one of many that will allow more rational and constructive dialogue and not a repeat of the venting of frustrations that have occurred in the recent past. The goal of this survey is to focus on the future.
