Fitch Ratings today announced that it has reopened its U.S. headquarters
located at One State Street Plaza in downtown New York City. This
building has been closed since Oct. 29 in the aftermath of Super Storm
Fitch, which is dual headquartered in New York and London, has remained
fully operational during this period. The firm's offices in Chicago and
London played a key role ensuring there was no significant disruption to
clients in the immediate aftermath of the storm. The majority of Fitch's
New York City based employees were relocated to backup facilities in New
York City and Westchester County.
