Fitch raises outlook for Aktia Bank as Aktia withdraws from using a third rater
Aktia Bank has received Fitch ratings since 2012. For a bank the size of Aktia it is not rational to maintain credit ratings from three rating agencies. In the future, Aktia Bank will receive credit ratings from Moody's and Standard&Poors.
When ending the cooperation, Fitch affirmed Aktia Bank’s rating; Long-term IDR BBB+; Short-term IDR F2 but outlook revised to stable (negative)
