Allied Nationwide To Obtain Credit Rating

Allied Nationwide To Obtain Credit Rating

Allied Nationwide Finance Limited (Allied Nationwide) today announced that it has formally engaged Standard & Poors to undertake a credit rating on the company in early 2008.

The move was in response to the requirements of the proposed new regulations which will make credit ratings mandatory for non-bank deposit takers, including finance companies.

John Mallon, Chief Executive of Allied Nationwide said, “We have decided to proceed with the credit rating process early as we consider it is important, both to meet current investor expectations and to position Allied Nationwide as a quality finance company.

“While Allied Nationwide has always adhered to ‘best practice’ in managing its business; which has been required by the board, we welcome the introduction of a new regulatory regime and believe it will help build investor confidence in the sector.”

Mr Mallon said that he anticipated that the ratings process will be completed around 31 March 2008, with the audited six monthly accounts to 31 December 2007 available to Standard & Poors.
