Hanoi, 19 September 2022
FiinRatings today announced that it has assigned a first-time Long-term Issuer Credit Rating 'A-' to Viet Capital Securities Joint Stock Company (“VCI” or “the Company”) with the Outlook: Stable.
FiinRatings' opinion on VCI's "A-" credit rating and "Stable" outlook, reflects our assessment of the risk and prospects of the Vietnamese securities services sector, as well as VCI's business risk profile and financial position.
FACTORS THAT COULD LEAD TO AN UPGRADE OR DOWNGRADE OF THE RATINGS
The ‘Stable’ outlook reflects FiinRatings’ view on VCI’s credit rating maintaining at the same level for the next 24 months. For 2022, we do not incorporate the continuation of exceptionally strong capital market conditions experienced in 2021. We assess that the possible decline in indices and market liquidity will have a negative impact on majority of securities brokerage companies. However, we believe that VCI’s financing and cost structure give the Company flexibility to cope with unfavorable market conditions. The Company with a diverse revenue structure and an established institutional client base like VCI may have a better shield against negative market conditions.
