“Credit-Rating” Rated Platinum Bank on the uaA+ Level
On the 30th of July 2013, an independent rating agency “Credit-Rating” rated Platinum Bank with the long-term issue credit rating of registered interest bearing debenture bonds for the total sum of 200 MIO UAH on the uaÀ+ level.
The rating is due to the higher creditworthiness, demonstrated by the Platinum Bank, in comparison with other Ukrainian borrowers. This is also confirmed by a prognosis – the rating is “stable”, which means currently absent preconditions for changing the rating within a year.
“For us, being rated thus – is a proof of stability of our work. And for our clients – it is one more clue to make the right decision about choosing a partner bank. This rating proves that we provide quality services independent of any economic or political factors. That is why our clients can feel secure and confident about the future”, - says Greg Krasnov, Chief Executive Officer of Platinum Bank.
In the process of credit rating, the financial statements of Platinum Bank for 2008–2012 and for the 1st half-year of 2013 were examined, as well as inner information, provided by the bank in the course of the rating process.
Factors, supporting the level of credit ratings:
• market positions – the broadening of sale channels resulted in considerable growth of the client base;
• diversification of the client’s credit portfolio regarding the major borrowers;
• diversification of the resource base regarding the major lenders;
• balance between the assets and liabilities in relation to the clearance time;
• acceptable indicators of the principal activity efficiency;
• informational openness and transparency.
