Kroll Bond Rating Agency’s (KBRA) latest macro-market comment provides KBRA’s insights surrounding our treatment of the United Kingdom’s (UK) departure from the European Union (“Brexit”) as it relates to Ireland’s sovereign credit rating. KBRA’s view on Ireland is based upon the expectation that Brexit will prove manageable for the country due to two main reasons: (1) a “soft” rather than “no-deal” Brexit appears more likely at this point, and (2) our expectations for Ireland’s economic resilience to remain resolute post-Brexit. KBRA would likely revisit Ireland’s credit rating if it turns out that the eventual Brexit outcome would have a material long-term impact on the country’s economic and fiscal profile. KBRA ratings are based upon a critical evaluation of credit risk fundamentals—matters related to ability and willingness to pay debts—and are not a reaction to headlines.
