Pakistan Credit Rating Agency Maintains Ratings of Bank AL Habib Limited


Lahore: PACRA has maintained the long-term and short-term entity ratings of Bank AL Habib Limited at AA+ (Double A plus) and A1+ (A One plus), respectively. The ratings of the subordinated and unsecured TFCs issues of PKR 1,350mln, PKR 1,500mln and PKR 2,000mln have also been maintained at AA (Double A).

The ratings reflect the bank’s sustained performance, exceptional asset quality, and satisfactory financial profile. The ratings draw comfort from prudent risk management policies and the management’s conservative risk appetite. Meanwhile, the management is endeavoring to diversify its advances portfolio by venturing into new segments, capitalizing on its well established branch network, which continues to expand, and has enabled the bank to develop sound deposit base.
