Highest rating, high responsiveness to changing demands of investors

NIB has continuously been assigned the highest possible credit rating, AAA/Aaa, by the leading international rating agencies Standard & Poor's and Moody's since it was first rated in the beginning of the 1980s. NIB's credit rating emanates from its high asset quality, strong balance sheet and its ownership.

Based on this solid platform, NIB finances its lending activities by borrowing funds and issuing bonds on capital markets around the globe. NIB aims at being a reliable partner responding flexibly to investors' needs.

It is the Bank’s target to ensure a sufficient level of liquidity to be able to continue disbursing new loans and fulfil all payment obligations for at least one year ahead, without additional new funding.

The treasury portfolios contribute to earnings and function as a liquidity reserve.

  • Portfolio management
    - to contribute to earnings and function as a liquidity reserve.
