The Rating Agency S&P Global Ratings (“S&P”) has changed UniCredit SpA’s outlook to stable (from negative).
The ‘BBB’ long- and ‘A-2’ short-term Issuer Credit Ratings have been affirmed. The issue ratings have been affirmed as well.
In S&P’s view, UniCredit has materially improved its resilience to withstand a hypothetical default of the Italian sovereign (‘BBB/A-2/negative outlook’). Thus, UniCredit SpA could now be rated above Italy’s long-term ratings.
