default risk
The likelihood that a corporation or government bond issuer will fail to repay its debts. Bond ratings from services such as Standard and Poor's, Moody's Investors Service, and Fitch ratings provide investors with a means of evaluating the issuer's creditworthiness and by extension the default risk for a given bond.
