Strategy

Our strategy

Our strategy is to ensure sufficient, cost-effective and sustainable long-term funding to meet the liquidity needs of the Group and satisfy the prudential requirements imposed by management and monetary authorities. This strategy is supported by regular calling programs and roadshows to ensure the Bank’s international profile is maintained and its credit strength is understood by investors and intermediaries.

The Bank targets an ‘AA’ credit rating band and the maintenance of the Bank’s credit rating is paramount. Group Funding is responsible for keeping the ratings agencies informed of all material developments in the Bank Group’s business which may impact on the credit ratings and therefore affect the cost of the Bank’s wholesale funding.
