Chilean ratings agency Feller Rate has assigned local bank Banco Consorcio an A rating for its solvency and for its longer-than one-year deposits, as well as a Level 1 rating for its deposits with maturities below one year.
All the ratings have a stable outlook, the agency said in a press release.
The assigned ratings reflect the support of its parent company, diversified financial conglomerate Consorcio Financiero; the comparative advantage of belonging to a group with an important market share; its ample client and business base; and its management team's experience and know-how.
Offsetting the ratings are the inherent risk of Banco Consorcio's current business strategy, low funding diversification and its small market share in the business segments where it operates.
