Fitch Affirms Central American Bank for Economic Integration's THB Bonds at 'AAA(tha)' Stcoks—04 Aug 20

Bangkok--4 Aug--Fitch Ratings (Thailand)

Fitch Ratings - Bangkok - 29 Jul 2020: Fitch Ratings (Thailand) has affirmed the 'AAA(tha)' National Long-Term Rating on the Central American Bank for Economic Integration's (CABEI) THB1.235 billion senior unsecured bonds due 2021.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

The national ratings on CABEI's senior unsecured Thai baht bonds are based on Fitch's view that the supranational bank's credit profile is in line with the strongest issuers rated on the Thai national rating scale.

RATING SENSITIVITIES
Factors that could, individually or collectively, lead to positive rating action/upgrade:
The 'AAA(tha)' rating on the senior unsecured bonds is the highest on Thailand's national rating scale; therefore, there is no ratings upside.
Factors that could, individually or collectively, lead to negative rating action/downgrade:

The national ratings could be downgraded if CABEI's credit profile materially deteriorated relative to the credit profile of the Thai sovereign and other issuers rated on the Thai national rating scale. However, Fitch believes that is unlikely to occur in the short term.

REFERENCES FOR SUBSTANTIALLY MATERIAL SOURCE CITED AS KEY DRIVER OF RATING
The principal sources of information used in the analysis are described in the Applicable Criteria.
