Fitch is a leading international ratings organisation which
provides International long term credit ratings (LTCR).
The Fitch rating for Ukraine is BB-. BB rating indicates
a speculative investment. This indicates a possible credit
risk, especially due to adverse economic change over a period
of time. However it also indicates that financial commitments
would probably be met as financial or business alternatives
may be available. It also indicates that these securities
are not investment grade. Standard and Poors have also rated
Ukraine BB-. S&P provides independent credit ratings,
indices (Index), risk evaluation, investment research, data
and valuation. It is considered one of the countries forerunners
for the same. Moody’s another Global Credit Research
Service has rated Ukraine as a B1 which suggests that financial
obligations are speculative and subject to high credit risk.
All the same in the last five years
Ukraine has seen a steady economic growth. Further growth
is expected and in part is thanks to its good consumer market,
government policies, an educated labour force, a well developed
transport infrastructure and a highly developed base for
scientific research and development.
