Fitch rates Armenia's ACBA-CREDIT AGRICOLE Bank bonds at 'B+'

PanARMENIAN.Net - Fitch Ratings has assigned the long-term "B +" rating to the $5 million bonds of Armenia's ACBA-CREDIT AGRICOLE Bank.

In summer of 2017, the bank issued the bonds with 5.5% yield and a maturing period by 2020.

Fitch had assigned ACBA-CREDIT AGRICOLE bank the Long-term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at “B+” with stable outlook back in May.

The assessment received by Fitch Ratings agency is the highest possible for companies in Armenia and it reassures the leading position of ACBA-CREDIT AGRICOLE bank and its transparent structure.
