OREANDA-NEWS. October 02, 2015. RusRating has assigned a credit rating to ProgmaTrade (Moscow). The rating is "BB+" on the national scale and "B+" on the international scale, in both cases with a stable outlook.

The rating is based on close business ties to a consulting group with significant experience in the market for closed mutual investment funds and successful operations (with no losses) over the course of several years.

Constraining factors include assets and liabilities highly concentrated by counterparty, low profits, and over-valuation of the property collateral behind the Kreditny Portfel [trs. Loan Portfolio] mortgage participation certificates, which make up the bulk of assets.
