Bandar Seri Begawan, 28 August 2020

Demonstrating its resilience in the face of a global pandemic, leading international ratings agency Standard & Poor’s reaffirmed its credit rating of BBB+/A-2 with stable outlook for Baiduri Bank, placing the Bank in the company of strong regional and global banks.

The report provided by Standard & Poor’s stated that the stable outlook on Baiduri Bank reflects their expectation that the Bank “will maintain its high systemic importance in Brunei”. The outlook also reflects their view that Baiduri Bank’s financial profile “will remain steady due to their adequate internal capital accruals amid low- to mid-single digit growth” over the next 18-24 months.

It also further stated that the rating reflects the Bank’s strong market share and diversified business in Brunei with a dominant market share of loans and deposits. The Bank’s liquidity and capital ratios are also stronger than those of several global peers and have witnessed a significant improvement compared to 2018.

Speaking on the achievement, Mr Ti Eng Hui, the CEO of Baiduri Bank said, “We are very pleased that Standard & Poor’s have reaffirmed our BBB+/A-2 with stable outlook rating. In the face of slow economic growth, a very low interest rate environment and a global pandemic, this reaffirmed rating shows resilience in our three core businesses and the strength of our balance sheet and capital ratios.”
