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

The credit rating of the Bank is based on its high systemic importance for the Russian economy and the very strong degree of state influence on the Bank. The Bank’s standalone creditworthiness assessment (SCA) is satisfactory. The Bank’s SCA reflects the low capital adequacy assessment, the weak risk profile assessment, as well as the moderately strong business profile assessment and adequate liquidity and funding.
