CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBRE) today announced that Moody's Investors Service has raised its senior unsecured rating to Baa2, with a positive outlook.

Last month, Standard & Poor’s Global Ratings raised CBRE’s corporate rating to BBB+.

In making the upgrade, the Moody’s analysis cited CBRE’s strong market position, improving credit profile and increased revenue from recurring sources.

“We have pursued a strategy of conservatively managing our balance sheet while investing proactively in our business to support the company’s growth.  The Moody's upgrade – coupled with a similar move by S&P last month – provides strong evidence that our strategy is working,” said Jim Groch, Chief Financial Officer and Global Director of Corporate Development for CBRE.
