effet de commerce/papier commercial

There is a similar query elsewhere in this section (I put in a "effet de commerce" as a suggestion). Effet de commerce can mean commercial paper, but is sometimes translated as trade bill. Commercial paper are (unsecured) bills issued by companies, often with relatively short redemption periods.

Risks ratings are provided by credit rating agencies (agences de notation).

note may simply refer to the bill itself (e.g. as in \"treasury note\")

Tout dépend du contexte. Je mettrais Billet de Trésorerie s'il s'agit de "short-term instrument". Si, en revanche, il s'agit de "bank advances on goods sold", alors il est préférable d'opter pour la deuxième solution.
