The EBRD welcomes the recent assessments from three leading international ratings agencies which have all reaffirmed their stable outlook for the Bank’s Triple A ratings.
“This confirmation of the Bank’s Triple A rating by all three rating agencies is a clear sign of confidence in the EBRD’s business model and financial strengths at a time of continuing economic and market uncertainty,” said Manfred Schepers, the EBRD’s Vice President for Finance.
“The Bank will continue to pursue prudent capital and risk management policies while still responding to the investment demands of the EBRD regions in what remains a challenging environment,” he added
In its assessment, Standard and Poor’s noted the EBRD’s very strong business profile and extremely strong financial profile.
Moody’s Investors Service referred to the EBRD’s strong financial performance, very high liquidity and strong capital base and a diversified shareholder structure.
Fitch Ratings said the affirmation of the EBRD’s ratings was primarily underpinned by the bank’s intrinsic strengths, including capitalisation.
