The bank’s Baseline Credit Assessment (BCA) was upgraded to ba1 from ba2, while its senior unsecured debt ratings is upgraded to Baa2 from Ba1.

The BCA upgrade reflects the bank’s improving solvency and the strongest funding and deposit franchise among local peers, the ratings agency said.

The deposit and senior debt ratings could be upgraded if there is any further improvement in the bank’s tangible capital metrics and asset quality, while it maintains solid profitability and complies with its MREL requirements. These trends will improve its solvency and loss absorbing capacity.
