Press Release as of 19.11.2015
AK&M Rating Agency has lowered the national scale credit rating of PJSC BALTINVESTBANK (license no. 3176) from 'B++' to 'C+', with a negative outlook.
The rating downgrade reflects the growing exposure to regulatory risks given the absence of considerable reserves of highly liquid assets and the Bank's imperfect funding base.
Another point of concern is the lack of stability in the Bank's operations resulting in a failure to honor its obligations to private and corporate creditors.
AK&M Rating Agency assigned a credit rating to PJSC BALTINVESTBANK for the first time on December 2, 2008. The last rating action in relation to the Bank was taken on November 13, 2015. All rating action announcements are available on the akmrating.ru website.
For estimation purposes, we completely rely on the reliability of information provided by the Bank. The rationale for AK&M Rating Agency's judgment on the rating may include information acquired from other sources we deem to be reliable; however, the agency does not check the input data exhaustively and disclaims all responsibility for their possible errors.
This press release is based on the monitoring results of the current credit rating assigned to PJSC BALTINVESTBANK and the Credit Rating Methodology for Banks and their Debt Instruments rev. August 14, 2015.
The rating, along with any information and conclusions provided in this press release, only conveys our opinion on the Bank's creditworthiness and shall not be construed as a recommendation to purchase or sell securities, or to lend funds.
AK&M Rating Agency shall not be held liable for any interpretations, inferences and consequences related to the application of results of the rating estimation procedure by any third parties.
