19.09.2017

On September 18, 2017, S&P Global Ratings affirmed its “BB-/B” long- and short-term counterparty credit ratings to RCB Bank Ltd with stable outlook.

S&P Global Ratings underlines that the rating on RCB reflects the bank’s steady income generation capacity, an experienced and stable management team and expectation that nonperforming loans will remain significantly lower than those of domestic and Russian peers.

Noting that RCB is one of the largest banks in Cyprus, S&P said that a stable outlook reflects the expectation that the bank’s business and financial profiles will remain stable over the next 12 months.

In another positive development of Cyprus’ economic recovery, on September 15, Standard & Poor’s placed the sovereign credit rating outlook of Cyprus from stable to positive, maintaining the BB+ sovereign credit rating.
