To affirm the credit ratings the agency considered financial statements of Platinum Bank for 2010-2011 and I-III quarters of 2012, as well as other inside information submitted by the bank within the rating procedure.
"The affirmation of our rating we accept as an indicator of constant and positive development of Platinum Bank. For us it is another step on the way to formation and further consolidation of our position on the Ukrainian banking market, as well as confirmation of efficiency of business leading strategy that have been chosen by us. For potential and existing clients the rating assessment as stable is a possibility to determine a market player that suites them at most. In return we again received a confirmation that we are reliable and stable bank whom you can trust", - Greg Krasnov, the CEO of Platinum Bank, comments.
A borrower or separate debt instrument with uaA credit rating is characterised by high credit solvency in comparison to other Ukrainian borrowers and debt instruments. The level of credit solvency is sensitive to the influence of adverse commercial, financial and economic conditions. A plus "+" and a minus "-" characters indicate intermediary categories (levels) relative to the principal categories (levels).
Stable forecast indicates that currently there are no preconditions to change the rating in the course of the year.
Factors maintaining the credit rating:
- improvement of market conditions due to the expansion of sales channels and clients base;
- client loan portfolio diversity on key borrowers;
- acceptable capitalisation indices;
- funding base diversity;
- information openness and transparency.
