“ACRA has been working in the market for a little over two years now and already boasts a strong portfolio of bank ratings. As at April 2018, the Agency rated the largest banks that account for 83% of assets in the Russian banking system. The unique experience gained by ACRA also translates into our research publications and forecasts”, commented Ekaterina Trofimova, ACRA CEO. “We believe we should communicate more actively with small and medium-size banks (as this segment is less covered by credit ratings) and want to share with representatives of such institutions alike what opportunities would emerge after we rate them.”

ACRA periodically conducts credit rating analysis trainings. Currently, the enrollment is open for Change Management training led by its author, Ekaterina Trofimova, ACRA CEO, to be held on May 21, 2018. Each attendee will be awarded a training completion certificate.
