Expected credit rating rationale. The issue represents senior unsecured debt of Promsvyazbank PJSC (hereinafter, PSB or the Bank). Due to the absence of either structural or contractual subordination of the issue, ACRA regards it as equal to other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of the Bank in terms of priority. According to ACRA’s methodology, the expected credit rating of the issue is equivalent to the credit rating of the Bank, i.e. eAA(RU).

The credit rating of the Bank is based on its high systemic importance, which stems from its status as Russia’s key defense industry bank and the very strong state influence on its creditworthiness. ACRA expects that the Bank's positions within the national defense industry will strengthen in the future. The standalone creditworthiness assessment of PSB reflects its moderately strong business profile, adequate capital adequacy, low risk profile assessment, and adequate funding and liquidity position.
