MSCI Upgrades Halyk Bank's ESG rating to 'BB' from 'B'

MSCI ESG Research LLC ('MSCI') has upgraded Halyk Bank's ESG rating to 'BB' from 'B' following the publication of Sustainability report for 2019 and 2020.

Based on the results of the completed annual review, the Bank's ESG rating was upgraded from laggard to average category.

The upgrade was a result of significantly improved ESG related disclosure and driven by further enhancement in the Bank's privacy and data security practices and human capital management.

"The ESG rating upgrade from the reputable ESG rating agency is a strong evidence of the continuous progress of developing the Bank's ESG framework and improving approaches to ESG disclosure in order to create more value and transparency for its stakeholders" - noted the CEO of Halyk Bank Umut Shayakhmetova.
