Bond Ratings

Ratings for the 2023 Series

S & P Global Ratings assigned its 'AAA' long-term rating to Collin County, Texas' approximately $245.4 million series 2023 limited-tax permanent improvement bonds. At the same time, S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'AAA' long-term rating on the county's unlimited and limited-tax general obligation (GO) debt outstanding.

Moody's Investors Service states Collin County's (Aaa stable) credit profile is strong and exceeds medians for the rating category across a number of metrics. The county's economy is steadily growing, large and affluent.  This has been fueled by its advantageous location directly north of Dallas (A1 stable) which has attracted a variety of corporate relocations and substantial residential development. The county's credit profile also benefits from conservative fiscal management and very high reserves relative to revenue. The county is primarily challenged by managing growth, with higher debt relative to other highly rated entities following the most recent issuance as the substantial ongoing development creates significant infrastructure costs.
