Expected credit rating rationale. The issue represents senior unsecured debt of International Investment Bank (hereinafter, IIB). Due to the absence of either structural or contractual subordination of the issue, ACRA regards it pari passu with other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of IIB in terms of priority. According to ACRA’s methodology, the credit rating of the issue is equivalent to that of IIB, i.e. AAA(RU), therefore the expected rating is eAAA(RU).

IIB’s issuer rating is based on its strong intrinsic financial strengths that stem from adequate capital adequacy, an adequate risk profile, and adequate liquidity and funding.
