We, in our turn, received the confirmation of being a reliable and stable bank, which can be trusted under any conditions and in any situation,” - comments Andrzej Olejnik, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of Platinum Bank.
The borrower or a separate debt instrument with the uaA rating is characterized by higher creditworthiness in comparison with other Ukrainian borrowers or debt instruments. The level of creditworthiness is sensitive to the influence of unfavorable commercial, financial and economic conditions. Signs «+» and «-» mark the intermediate categories (levels) of the rating relative to the main categories (levels).
Stable prognosis shows current absence of preconditions for changing the rating within a year.
Factors, supporting the level of credit ratings:
- strong market positions in the segment of credit provision to individuals;
- diversification of the client’s credit portfolio regarding the major borrowers;
- diversification of the resource base regarding the major lenders;
- acceptable indicators of the principal activity efficiency;
- informational openness and transparency.
