ACRA assigns AAA(RU) to RU000A0ZYUJ0 bond issued by Sberbank

Credit rating rationale. The issue represents senior unsecured debt of Sberbank (hereinafter – Sberbank, or the Bank). Due to the absence of either structural or contractual subordination of the issue, ACRA regards it as equal to other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of the Bank in terms of priority. According to the ACRA methodology, the credit rating of the issue is equivalent to that of Sberbank, i.e. AAA(RU).

The credit rating of Sberbank is based on its very high systemic importance for the Russian economy and a high degree of state influence, as defined by the ACRA methodology. The Bank enjoys high standalone creditworthiness compared to other Russian credit institutions, which is supported by its exceptional market positions, adequate capital position and adequate risk profile.
