CAF's success  accessing the international capital markets is mostly due to the high credit ratings assigned  by the main international  rating agencies.

In fact, CAF´s ratings are among the highest of Latin American debt issuers.

These agencies have recognized the Institution's outstanding creditworthiness based on a strong capital base, which resulted from the continuous support from the shareholders through repeated increases in subscribed and paid-in capital and a greater loan portfolio diversification.

 

 

Some key factors underpinning  CAF's credit ratings are: 

  • Strong capitalization
  • Excellent asset quality
  • High liquidity level
  • Consistent growth and profitability
  • Preferred creditor status
  • Continued shareholders support
  • Broad investor base
