Fitch affirms Public Trust's AA credit rating

As part of its annual review process, independent ratings agency Fitch has affirmed Public Trust’s long-term AA credit rating.

The AA credit rating is only one notch below the New Zealand Government rating and a higher rating than the senior unsecured long-term ratings of major banks in New Zealand.

Retaining our AA credit rating is a great affirmation of our growth story says Chief Financial and Information Officer, Angela Dixon.

“The strong foundations that we’ve put in place over the past few years have meant we now have an emerging pattern of growth clearly established. As a business dedicated to earning Kiwis’ enduring trust, having an AA rating is an important way of providing assurance to the thousands of personal customers and corporate clients that we help every day through our expert services.

“We continue to stay true to growing our core business. Endorsements like this are a great validation of the hard work we are putting in to better serve New Zealanders.”
