5Agency Ratings

Following the publication of its revised bank rating methodology and as initiated in March 2015, Moody’s Investors Service has concluded its rating reviews on 21 May 2015. Moody’s assigned ratings to Bank Julius Baer & Co. Ltd. as follows:  

  • Long-Term Deposit Rating: Aa2
  • Short-Term Deposit Rating: Prime-1 (representing the highest possible short-term rating)
  • Long-Term Senior Unsecured and Issuer Rating: A2

In addition, Moody’s introduced a new rating called ‘Counterparty Risk Assessment’ for which Bank Julius Baer was assigned an Aa3(cr) for the long term and a Prime-1(cr) for the short term. The Counterparty Risk Assessment is an opinion of the counterparty risk related to a bank's covered bonds, contractual performance obligations (servicing), derivatives (e.g. swaps), letters of credit, guarantees and liquidity facilities.
