Credit rating rationale. The issue represents senior unsecured debt of Bank RRDB (JSC) (the Bank). Due to the absence of either structural or contractual subordination of the issue, ACRA regards it as pari passu to other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of the Bank. According to the ACRA methodology, the credit rating of the issue is equivalent to that of the Bank — AA-(RU).

The credit rating assigned to the Bank stems from its strong business profile and strong capital adequacy. The standalone creditworthiness assessment is under certain pressure from a high concentration of both assets and funding on the Bank’s affiliates and the risks arising from the fast-track development strategy of the Bank. The rating is supported by a high likelihood of extraordinary support from the parent holding.
