Thanks for the comment. I'm guessing by "investment grade" you must mean A rated or better.

Technically, anything above BBB- is known as "investment grade".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Investment_grade_bond


A bond is considered investment grade or IG if its credit rating is BBB- or higher by Standard & Poor's or Baa3 or higher by Moody's or BBB(low) or higher by DBRS. Generally they are bonds that are judged by the rating agency as likely enough to meet payment obligations that banks are allowed to invest in them.
