  abstract =     "This study examines the utility of Grammatical
                 Evolution in modelling the corporate bond-issuer credit
                 rating process, using information drawn from the
                 financial statements of bond-issuing firms. Financial
                 data, and the associated Standard & Poor's
                 issuer-credit ratings of 791 US firms, drawn from the
                 year 1999/2000 are used to train and test the model.
                 The best developed model was found to be able to
                 discriminate in-sample (out-of-sample) between
                 investment-grade and junk bond ratings with an average
                 accuracy of 87.59 (84.92)percent across a five-fold
                 cross validation. The results suggest that the two
                 classifications of credit rating can be predicted with
                 notable accuracy from a relatively limited subset of
                 firm-specific financial data, using Grammatical
