NIBC Bank Outlook to ’Positive’; ‘BBB/A-2’ Affirmed

News Release -

Yesterday, 29 October 2018, S&P Global Ratings revised its outlook on NIBC to ‘positive’ from ‘stable’ and affirmed the ‘BBB/A-2’ rating.

According to S&P :

  • “The positive outlook on NIBC Bank reflects the expectation that the bank may build up a larger buffer of bail-inable instruments to comply with MREL, which would lead us to incorporate one notch of uplift in our long-term rating for ALAC during our two-year outlook time horizon;
  • We could raise the ratings if NIBC Bank makes progress with MREL issuance, such that our ALAC measure is sustainably above the 5% minimum for an uplift;
  • We believe that, in the meantime, NIBC Bank will maintain its strategic niche focus and robust capitalization, combined with a stable risk appetite and sound asset quality;
  • We also assume that NIBC Bank's funding profile will keep improving, as we think the maintenance of strong capital ratios and a solid funding mix is important (…).”

Statement of the CFO, Herman Dijkhuizen:

“We are pleased with S&P’s decision to revise its outlook to ‘positive’, just over a year after raising the credit rating of NIBC Bank to BBB. In the past year we have proven to continuously build our curves, in terms of performance, capital generation, as well as on the funding side.”
