29.03.2019

The independent rating agency Credit-Rating confirmed the long-term credit rating of Pivdenny Bank at “uaAA“ with a stable outlook. The agency also confirmed the bank deposit reliability rating at the “4+” level (high reliability).

Confirmation of the credit rating of the bank is based on the growth of operating profit, increase in capital, maintaining a low level of problem loans and the qualitative structure of attracted funds.

According to the agency’s national rating scale, a borrower with a rating of “uaАА” is characterized by very high solvency compared to other Ukrainian borrowers or debt instruments, and a stable outlook indicates that there are currently no prerequisites for changing the rating throughout the year.

In December 2018, the international rating agency MOODY`S raised the ratings of Pivdenny Bank. As a result, Pivdenny Bank rose one step in the risk assessment rating (Caa1 → B3). The long-term deposit rating of the bank was also revised upwards (Caa2 → Caa1 with a “stable” outlook).
