The AAA rating of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development remains unchanged and the outlook for the bank's debt stock remains Stable.

 

The three leading international rating agencies -- Standard and Poor’s, Moody’s and Fitch -- have all reaffirmed their AAA ratings for the debt of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), underscoring the Bank’s stability at a time of turbulence in financial markets.



In statements released in the last week, the agencies also described the outlook for the Bank’s debt as Stable.

They referred specifically to the EBRD’s strong capital position, which has been bolstered by a capital increase to which all of the EBRD’s major shareholders have now subscribed.
