Fitch Ratings Affirms Ratings on Svenska Handelsbanken AB-Reuters

Thursday, 4 Apr 2013 09:42am EDT 

Reuters reported that Fitch Ratings has affirmed Svenska Handelsbanken AB's (Handelsbanken) Long-term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at 'AA-', Short-term IDR at 'F1+', and Viability Rating (VR) at 'aa-'. The Outlook on the Long-term IDR is Stable. Fitch has also affirmed the ratings of Handelsbanken's wholly-owned subsidiary Stadshypotek. The affirmation of Handelsbanken's VR and IDRs reflects in Fitch's view the Bank's strong Swedish franchise, solid capitalization and strong track record in terms of resilient asset quality and stable earnings. The ratings also take into account the Bank's reliance on confidence-sensitive capital markets for its funding needs, a structural feature of the Nordic banks, as well as the liquidity buffer, diversified funding sources and further lengthening maturity profile to mitigate this.
