National Credit Ratings
Providing forward-looking insights and in-depth information on rated entities, our credit ratings enable investors to identify risks, understand credit trends, and make better decisions. Issuers and borrowers leverage our ratings for enhancing their access to funding, widening range of funding alternatives, and optimizing cost of funds.
Using the most rigorous criteria, we rate financial institutions and insurers, corporates of all kinds, holding companies, local and regional governments, and debt obligations of all those entities.
Following best global practices, our team has set new transparency standards for the Russian ratings industry and instituted several innovations to promote clarity, knowledge and better understanding for the entire community.
Our analysts assess financial instruments for conformity to environmentally sustainable finance criteria, verify them, and subsequently monitor conformity on an ongoing basis.
Leveraging our unique expertise, we have developed our own Methods for Determining Financial Instruments Conformity to Sustainable Finance Criteria based on the national guidelines and global standards. NCR offers verification for a wide range of instruments, including green bonds and loans, leasing or similar instruments, and guarantees and sureties for green projects or financing programs.
We share our knowledge and insights in ESG working groups with the Russian parliamentary committee for financial markets and VEB.RF, Russia’s state development corporation.
