KBRA Assigns Preferred Stock Rating of BB+ for TriState Capital Holdings, Inc.

World News: . []

Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigned a preferred stock rating of BB+ for TriState Capital Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSC) (“the Company”), a bank holding company headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The BB+ rating for TSC’s non-cumulative perpetual preferred stock is notched from the BBB rating for TSC’s senior unsecured debt and subordinated debt rating of BBB-. On March 5, 2018, KBRA affirmed other ratings for TSC as well as ratings of its subsidiary, TriState Capital Bank (“the Bank”). The Outlook on all long-term ratings is Positive.

The Positive Outlook for the long-term ratings reflects the resilience in TSC’s earnings and capital to KBRA’s forward looking economic stress scenarios. Furthermore, the Positive Outlook is a result of the continued enhancement in the Bank’s risk profile in recent years, and the positive impact the change has had on the credit quality of TSC’s loan portfolio. In addition, the potential for earnings accretion through revenue growth in Chartwell Investment Partners, LLC from organic or acquisitive expansion is a positive factor. The ratings are constrained by TSC’s comparatively low net interest margin and below average earnings metrics, although core profitability is expected to improve in 2018 due to continued improvements in bank efficiencies as well as increased scale of operations. The Bank’s elevated level of noncore funding is an additional constraint on the ratings.

The ratings are based on KBRA’s Global Bank and Bank Holding Company Rating Methodology published on February 19, 2016. Additionally, KBRA’s approach to bank preferred notching can be found here.
