France's Noyer: new rules for ratings agencies

Christian Noyer, the governor of the Banque de France, highlighted three areas in which the regulation of rating agencies needs to improve in the wake of the credit crunch.

· whether to change the metric used for rating bonds and structured products and;

· introducing a specific rating for liquidity risk.
