[ET Net News Agency, 29 June 2017] Moody's Investors Service has today assigned to the
Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) a long-term foreign currency issuer rating of
Aaa and a short-term foreign currency issuer rating of Prime-1. The rating outlook is
The rating reflects Moody's assessment of AIIB's current and future creditworthiness, as
it ramps up its operations over the next 5-10 years.
Moody's added the Aaa rating takes into account the strength of AIIB's governance
frameworks, including its policies on risk management, capital adequacy and liquidity.
Very robust capital adequacy will support AIIB's credit profile. Moody's expects AIIB's
liquidity position to be as strong as that of other highly rated multilateral development
banks (MDBs). The availability of substantial callable capital illustrates the contractual
and extraordinary support Moody's expects would be forthcoming in extremis. (HL)
