Moody’s assigns LHV Group an investment grade issuer rating

·1-min read

The rating agency Moody's Investors Service assigned a Baa3 long-term local currency issuer rating to AS LHV Group, with a positive outlook. This is the first rating assigned to AS LHV Group.

According to Moody’s, the issuer rating of Baa3 reflects LHV Group's principle role as a bank holding company for its main operating subsidiary, AS LHV Pank. The bank has a current Baa1 rating on Bank Deposits. Moody’s assessed that the group has a clear governance structure and processes in place to manage their risks, supporting Moody's view of low risk of governance failures.

The outlook on LHV Group's issuer rating is positive. This reflects Moody's expectations that the bank continues to grow its creditworthiness.

The rating allows LHV Group better access to funding from international capital markets.
