IDEA #2: MOSCOW CREDIT BANKLast week, Moody’s affirmed the long-term ratings of Moscow Credit Bank (MCB) at Ba3, the rating outlook is “stable”. MCB priority unsecured debt ratings are also affirmed at this level. “The confirmation of the MCB ratings is due to the relative stability of the bank's financial profile during 2018 and in the first half of 2019, taking into account, on the one hand, a decrease in the volume of problem loans and, on the other hand, a weakening profitability, as well as maintaining generally stable sufficiency indicators capital, "- said in a press release Moody's.
The senior issues of the issuer offer a yield in the range of 5-6% and look interesting against the background of international peers.
