The upgrade from 'Rating Watch Positive' (A-) to A+ follows the acquisition by CACEIS and expresses the fact that KAS BANK now has the institutional support from Crédit Agricole.

Fitch announced that: “In our opinion, until the merger is completed and KAS becomes a branch of CACEIS, the former will benefit from a very high probability of support from Crédit Agricole (A+/Stable/F1/a+).”

The rating actions are as follows:

  • IDR on the long term: A+
  • IDR on the short term: F1
